Comped drinks in a cruise ship casino? Nope!

What a great idea, though! Someone should flood RCI with emails suggesting that.

It is not widely known, but on Carnival they actually do if it looks like you are seriously playing. If you are an oceanplayers member, send an email to the casino host prior to the cruise and then go meet him on board and after that the number of drinks relate to your play (and probably casino bar staff tips too). I am sure RCCL has a similar program. I didnt know anything about it until may last cruise when the casino host came by my machine and hooked me up.

Well, I learn something new every day. But I am not a real gambler anyway so it won't matter to me. I'll do my usual donation of $100 to the slots then never go back to the casino.

Yup, on the Carnival Spirit we were getting comp'd drinks. But we were there every night, and we were hitting the table maximums on some hands. (we were beating progressively higher if we were winning) BUT that was the only time I have seen them do it. Like the other post said, its not Vegas. But, if you talk with the Casino host and are playing at a $25 table you may get some comps...

Carnival is better about a free drink or 2 if you gamble a lot, sometimes the slot manager will offer, and once i saw a manager and asked "hey do i get a free drink for reaching 10k in player points?" sure, why not.. was the cheerful reply...RCCL's casino manager also gave me a free drink (but that was after i hit a jackpot)

One important thing to note RCCL does not tax winnings above $1200 like carnival and princess do.....I thought since they are foreign registered and in international waters that uncle sam wouldnt get a cut, but i was told they do on carnival and princess. I just like that RCCL doesnt report jackpots...good luck on getting one.
