If you like to mix your high-seas adventures with a little casino action, there’s good news afloat.
Norwegian Cruise Lines Holdings Ltd. is launching a refreshed Casinos at Sea rewards program, which will allow passengers to earn status at all casinos on NCL, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas vessels.
“We are glad to relaunch the Casinos At Sea program, making it the first multi-branded casino rewards program at sea,” said Jim Abbas, Senior Vice President of Casino Operations, Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. “Casinos At Sea members can now play aboard all 24 ships under the Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises brands, offering an expansive range of innovative onboard amenities, worldwide itineraries, exquisite onboard dining and unrivaled luxury. No matter which ship they sail with, members will be recognized, and earn points and rewards as they play.”
The rewards program is valid at all 24 casinos on board the three liners, which jointly offer more than 4,000 games. Points can be earned on slots as well as table games and can be redeemed for such benefits as stateroom discounts, free casino play, free casino drinks, onboard credits and more.
To join, guests need simply register for a complimentary Players Card at the Players Club desk. Progress towards elite status levels will be tracked through collective participation at all Norwegian, Oceania and Regent Seven Seas casinos over a one-year period starting April 1, 2017.
Points earned on table games will vary depending on game type, amount of bet and length of play, but reel and video slots will earn 1 point for every $5 coin-in and video poker will earn 1 point for every $10 coin-in. The points accumulate towards status levels such as Jade (no minimums), Pearl (5,000 points), Sapphire (15,000 points), Ruby (35,000) and Elite (100,000). Each status level features progressively greater rewards, including free shore excursions for two people (valued at $300 per person) or airport transfers for Elite members.
