    Urcomped has an interesting article about how the casino cruise certificate events work:

    https://urcomped.com/blog/details/1041709/how-casino-cruise-certificate-events-work-and-how-to-use-one-offer-to-unlock-hund?src=vmb

    In addition, they have an offer to expand beyond your original offer:

    For anyone that receives an invitation for a free cruise certificate from a land-based casino, whether in Las Vegas or local, URComped has a fast, easy way to use that offer to unlock more free cruises from other lines.

    You'll still get to use the free cruise certificate from the casino that invited you (if you go out to pick it up), but URComped gives you a way to use that invitation to unlock more offers at other places.

    I just went through URcomped, because Brian Christopher just announced his Rudies cruise for February. I signed up with them, sent in some offers, and I got a 7 day Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean, Oasis of the Seas, fully comped. It's just an inside cabin, but I'm thrilled! I am not a High Roller by any means, so it never hurts to try!

    I'm new to this URComped site. Any additional info about it would be great.

    Also, is this related to the Mlife cruise offer I got?
    "Your Complimentary Offer:
    Complimentary 3 Night cruise in an Ocean-view stateroom to the Bahamas and Caribbean on Royal Caribbean, and a 4 Night cruise to the Caribbean on Celebrity Cruises"​

    I'm pretty new to this myself, so someone else might have better info.
    The offer you got from mlife is not related to urcomped. Both mlife and CET give out cruise offers to loyal gamblers

    However, you can use that offer and show it to urcomped, and see what kind of cruise they will give you.

    I only had a 3 night Norwegian offer. But that plus my casino free play offers got me a comped 7 night on royal. Which I understand is a better cruise line.

    Obe thing to always check is what fees are involved some of these free cruises you still end up paying $500 in admin fees. With royal I only paid $130 total for the 7 nights for taxes and port fees.

    I tried this site years ago for casino offers and got nothing. Haven't tried any casinos.

    The person who can best answer your questions here is @shacktown

    URComped has helped a few people here by getting their comps matched across programs, etc. You should be able to search for their name and find other threads. Or, if you go to that link, their contact info is on the bottom of that page.

    I mostly talk to Craig there, but he has a pretty responsive team.

    I just got a similar cruise offer from mlife, it’s seven day cruise and was wondering how legit it was. interesting I may have to pick up the certificate. I’ve never gone on a cruise.

    It's very legit! I just got back from my Mlife provided RC cruise to Bahamas. I was given a ocean view room, which I then was able to pay $250 for an upgrade to a balcony.

    I signed up with them a few years ago. I get emails for cruises through them every month or so but there are always those **for qualified players caveats. Never really tried to book one. Maybe I should look closer. I must admit I’ve been on a few cruises and they aren’t my favorite vacation but I bet free would help. Got claustrophobic so only 4 or 5 days max. One good thing is the casinos aren’t open 24/7 so you are forced to do real normal people vacation things.

    I guess I’ve always been one of the few heavy gamblers on board....I usually come back to my cabin and find a fruit basket or chocolate covered strawberries with a nice note from the casino host.

    They offered me a free cruise & "Casino rate" for my traveling companion for some RCCL cruises this summer/fall.
    I inquired what that casino rate was several days ago; they had me answer the SAME questions about bankroll, game choices--AGAIN, and no response on the rate for my traveling companion.

    I would take that as a hint that the number was too low.

    I have talked with them and one of the things that is very important (to urComped) is how much play you will give them. I was asked in advance what my daily play and weekly loss expectation (budget) was. When I asked them about the loss budget, the reply was. If you hit your loss budget before the trip ends you are not "expected" to play beyond that.

    Still, no destinations I'm interested in, so I have passed to this point. I'm taking my son to Alaska in July on my CET 7* cruise and we'll see how that goes.

    Cruised RCCL on Independence of the Seas in May using urcomped. They rated my CET play and gave my wife and I a 'free' inside cabin. We upgraded to a balcony for $250. Total cost, with port fees and taxes was $500ish. It was very easy and will try them again in the future.

    I have used URcomped for a golden nugget stay. My host was fantastic, it was easy to use and communication was great, they booked on my behalf and send me the confirmation.

    My stay went without a hitch and I even had the resort fees as part of the comp. I can vouch for them being genuine and would use them again!

    URcomped rocks! They have the best service and responds back in less than 24 hours. Very nice and easy to communicate. You can also search for the cruise that you want to try.

    BEST thing since Las Vegas was built.

    We have a cruise booked out of Puerto Rico on March but if I can hop on Oasis of the Seas to go ANYWHERE I would hop on this gig in a second. I do believe I am going to have to pick up another free cruise and look this up.

    Can a casino cruise certificate be used to unlock a poker cruise, like for example from cardplayer magazine?

    I received an offer of several Royal Caribbean cruises that I could choose from through URComped. In some of the other threads that I have read on here, the reviews seemed pretty favorable. Has anyone taken one of the URComped cruise offers in the past and, if so, is there anything that I need to be cautious of?
