    You got a nice room on Royal. Ours was adequate with the mini suite,but would have preferred your room! If you get hungry for pizza there is an included ( free) pizza place called Alfredo's I believe,that they make them fresh to order. I liked mine a lot and so did the kids. They are individual size,so you can both order what you want. Do not do the Scavenger Hunt or you will get sucked into an hour long sales pitch/tour when you go to the spa to get your card stamped! Beware! Lol The tacos on the buffet are yummy! I ate them everyday as I didn't like much else! Lots of fresh jalapeños! If you play a lot in casino they will send you bottles of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries every single night! I had to leave like 6 bottles,as no room to take them home. Lol Enjoy! I'm so jealous of this amazing trip you are on! Win big Lousy! Oh by the way those sardines looked tasty! I eat them out of the can on Saltine crackers at home, so the fresh ones would be amazing!

    Have a great time! Weather looks amazing. @Hoofy7 is right about the pizza in the main Piaza area. Nice thin Neapolitan style.
    Looking forward to more pics of the ship.

    Had dinner in the Crown Grill yesterday, one of the specialty restaurants on board, as it is free on embarkation day if you are in a suite. Didn't feel like steak though so had lobster. The food was ok, but you all have had much better in Vegas.

    I quite liked the French Onion soup.

    After dinner, walked around the ship and stumbled upon movie poster trivia about to start. Did ok, 19-25 but missed almost all the chick flicks. Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams did a movie together? Had no idea. Asked wife if she wanted to see a show, English singer I believe, but she said no told me to go check out the casino as she knew I wanted to gamble, what a nice wife. I should have just gone to bed.

    @3vees and @Hoofy7, if the slots are supposed to be relatively loose the 1st couple of nights, can't imagine how tight they're going to be later. Only one decent hit on Wonder 4

    [​IMG]
    Have never had so many low paying bonuses before, Siberian and Sumatran Storm, 5 Wonder 4 bonuses, Quick Hits, all under $35! Didn't see anyone get a HP, and the slots were packed. There was one craps table with a bunch of lousys that broke pretty quickly and 4-5 BJ tables. At one table, the dealer, a fairly attractive young Chinese woman , was getting a lot of unwanted attention it seemed from one of the Chinese guys playing. She obviously had the last laugh as I saw him get up, chipless, and the smirk I saw on her face was priceless. After losing enough for one night (kept in under a grand, barely) had had enough as I knew I would be visiting the casino a few more times, degen that I am

    Day 2 of the cruise was a stop at Santorini. As I write this, we have just left the island. It truly is a beautiful place. Although it was my 3rd time visiting, I had never done a tour so we went on one that went to the ruins and Oia in the north end.

    I have to agree with you. What you won on Wonder 4 was my biggest win as well but on the middle machine with Wicked Winnings, 5 Dragons, Timber Wolf, and 50 Lions on it. I could not win and I bet Max on it almost all the time. The casino is tight as hell in my opinion. Really enjoying your report though Lousy and appreciate you sharing.

    You are so right about the casino Hoofy! Last night was about the same, $800 down for the night but it could have been worse. Found a machine that I could play for a while
    [​IMG]
    No big wins but lots of bonuses and features, reminded me of when I worked at a gas station during school.
    Also played VP, 25c Jackpot DBP.
    Tring, I screwed up holding the AAQQ didn't I. Will play some more VP today as sea Day and think there is a small slot tourney.

    I played that gas station game too! I got the progressive for $125 or so twice when you get all the symbols. It reminds me of the Yardbird game reel wise. Curious if the Yardbird slot just down at the end from the gas station game still has its bet buttons broke? Lol The crew working on Royal I also thought were very nice and they keep it spotless. Waitstaff at dinner does an excellent service for the amount of tables each head waiter is responsible for as well. Good luck today Lousy!

    Loving all the pics- it actually inspired me to book a Mediterranean cruise for the family next summer! Sucks that the casino isn't being a little friendlier. Curious to see if they will take off any charges and what kind of follow up offers you will get from your play!! Hope you are enjoying the day and the slots loosen up!

    Really enjoying the photos - seems like it is a perfect vacation except for the casino losses.

    Yeah, you break 2 pair with Aces in double bonus unless it's 10/7/5 (100.17%), that's 7/5/4 (93.11%) ack!

    I'd suggest another game if it was available. Even 6/5 DDB (94.66%) is over 1.5% better.

    Hope you can find some big wins the rest of the way!

    Yesterday was a sea day and so we just chilled for most of the day on our balcony. I was actually able to finish a book (Bernard Cornwell's latest) and only played a bit of slots. Missed the final of the slot tourney, but there was only one prize of $500. The Yardbird slot is fixed Hoofy but payouts on bonuses for all the games were pretty bad when I got them.

    BTW VC, I don't think you get any charges taken off for gambling. Point wise, you get a free drink at 1000 and a specialty dinner for 8000 points. I am not sure about future cruise offers but I believe you get free play on Princess for future cruises vs free cruise offers from Celebrity. It's nice have a casino on board but I will definitely do most of my gambling in Vegas.
