The Following is a post from the Yahoo Group  “Casino Comps”

re free NCL cruise certificates

Just remember that these certificates are only mostly “free” – you have to
pay the port charges, NCF fee, and gratutities ($12 per day per person) -
plus the usual extras such as soda/booze charges, shore excursions etc. The
port charges and fees can be not that low, depending on the
cruise/port/stateroom. You will also pay extra if you upgrade from an inside
to a
balcony, and so-on. Some ships have only a few handicapped rooms (depending on
the type of stateroom) as well. We paid around $600 for the port taxes and
fees for an Alaskan cruise per cabin (plus the gratuities) – on a balcony

NCL knows that by giving trips to gamblers at minimal cost (the fees), they
will still make money from selling booze, shore excursions, etc., plus
probably gambling money.

The following is a post from the Yahoo Group  vpFree, highlighting the importance of getting offers in writing for larger comps. Casino Hosts can be deceptive.

Atlantis Bahamas

We have stayed at the Atlantis several times over the last few years. The offers in the past were always specific, free suite, $300 day food and $1500 in FreePlay.

This time the offer said to call your host and let us customize a vacation just for you. I e-mailed Marshall and asked him what he could do. He e-mailed back saying “the same as last time the suite and he would take care of dinners.”

When I received my bill at the hotel it had all food charges. I went to VIP services, No Luck. I e-mailed Marshall and his comment was that I did not play enough so there would be no comps above the room. I said that I expected him to keep his word but that didn’t matter.

In fairness to Marshall, I did gamble less this trip than on previous trips. I played about 50K /day and lost a decent amount of money.

So,I tried disputing the charges with the credit card company but since he only said that he would take care of it and not comp the food charges, I lost the dispute. The interpretation on “take car of it” was make the reservation. I have a feeling the sleazeball knew that and worded his e-mail very carefully.

Now we have had 4 very nice vacations at the Atlantis, ate great meals and love their pools and water rides. This is just a note to make sure you get a detailed up front note of what will be comped especially when visiting the Atlantis in the Bahamas.
