More "Cruise Question" Answers

I had a few additional cruise questions that I wanted to answer.

Any "happy hours" on the ship?

None that I saw, but they did offer the usual "drink of the day" special.

Did RCI host a "welcome back" party for past cruisers?

Yes, there was a "Crown and Anchor" party that we were invited to (on Saturday night between the first and second seating) that we did not attend. I suspect, though I don't know for certain, that a seperate reception was also held for Crown and Anchor members above "Gold" status. We also had a Cruise Critic get together hosted by Gordon, the Cruise Director.

How was the casino?

It was ok. I prefer the one aboard NCL's Jade. I can't really "deal with" slot machines that still operate on coins. It's too much of a hassle for my small stakes gaming. I like to be able to print out a ticket and move on... otherwise, I feel like I just need to play until the money is used up so I don't have to carry around a pocket full of coins. (As you can tell, I'm not a gambling man by nature.) They did have penny (and I believe nickel) slot machines. The first night also had lower table minimums. We played a little video poker on one sea day and that was about it.
