    Cruise trip report

    Well Fanatics here is the trip report of our cruise.
    Left the port at 4pm. Got through customs just fine.
    The ship is enormous and gorgeous. If someone will give me their number I can text pictures to post on the board. I do not have a way to post pictures.
    We had such a great time. The slot tournament was the next day. I was able to get in the first round. Unfortunately I did not make it post the 1st round. I have never played this style Monopoly machine before. If it had been a Firelink I probably would have done a lot better.
    They had 3 Firelink machines. The machines did not pay anything like the machines I play at my local. There were so many dead spins between small wins it was pathetic. Thursday I did win a $2600 jackpot on one of the Firelink machines but still came home down for the trip. The Firelink were extremely popular. A lot of times I had to wait for hours just to get on one. I am not used to that.
    We went to Princess Cays on Tuesday and it was gorgeous. We walked around and looked at all the vendors. Did not buy anything there but enjoyed it anyway. The temp on our trip was 80 to 85 everyday. It was wonderful weather.
    Thursday we went to St. Thomas and it is beautiful there too. We walked all over looking at the shops and I bought some t-shirts. You can get t-shirts for only $5 at a lot of the shops. Friday we went to St. Maartins. I think that was my favorite place that we went to. It was so beautiful there.
    At nighttime we would walk around the boat. They had movies outside every night under the stars. They also had beautiful water fountains that danced to music.
    One night the casino paid for our dinner at a very nice restaurant. This restaurant was not free so we had steak and lobster for dinner. The casino also let my friend have spa days based on my slot play. I put 42,000 points on my card so you can see I played and played. It takes $2.50 to get one point. One of the ladies I talked to said it looked like I put around $100,000 through the machines. I played the Firelink most of the time but Thursday night I played a panda bear machine and got 447 freespins which paid me $734.
    When we got ready to head home I got an offer from the casino for another cruise. This one is for an upgraded balcony room. I have until next December to use the offer. I know they will be having another Monopoly slot tournament next year.
    We had such a good time. I know my husband was with me the whole time. I felt his presence throughout my stay.
    When I got home I was bored so I went to Hard Rock to play my Firelinks. Just as I was ready to leave I won over $1000. It was so much easier to win on these machines versus the cruise machines.
    Warren, Kristi and Lea -Thank You once again for letting me and my friend go. This trip will be with us for a very long time.

    The slots on cruises are extremely tight since it’s a captive audience. Even their table games have awful rules.

    Wills,
    You are so right about the captive audience. The casino is pretty small for so many people. One thing I did like is most of the casino was non smoking. They did have a few rows of smoking but it was so strong I did not even go in the area until everyone went to bed. My Firelink machines were in the non smoking area which was great.

    Hi Kuda,

    Welcome home,

    Your Fanatic family missed you. Sounds like a good time was had by both of you, and the memories will last forever, that's what is important.. I would imagine you will be getting several offers for next year based on your play.
    Glad you are back and I see punishing those Fireleinks again.. Enjoy the holidays and wishing you a safe and healthy 2019..

    Bettinman,
    Thank you. We had a blast. We both wound up with a cold or something. Luckily my cold is not as bad as my friends is. I have not had a cold for years,
    Yes, I have been hitting the Firelinks. I hit 4 jackpots since Saturday at Riverspirit. I hit 2 on Saturday and hit 2 more Christmas night. It is funny I hit the jackpots on the same 2 machines.
    I hope you have a safe and winning New Year.
