Crazy Cruise III... Sailing home.

Wow! What a night. 2017 sure came in with a bang last night on the Allure of the Seas. The crush of people on the Promenade made it hot and hard to breathe, so we went down to Casino where there wasn't any crowd... or kids. Except my nephew. We snuck him in and I let him play a hand of video poker and he won $5.00.
He made sure he got paid, too.
So we had champagne all around and went back to gambling. I lost and wrapped it up around 2:00a.m.
This is the last full day of my incredible trip. Just packing today and cashing in my chips in casino. Maybe have a go on the Flowrider again.
My room attendant, Viola brought my luggage tags and my mail and inside I found a certificate. It says:

"You have been awarded a vacation for two on board one of the most innovative and exciting cruise lines in the travel industry... This certificate entitles the below casino guest a complimentary Royal Caribbean International cruise"
And on the back side is a list of all these cruise dates I can choose from.
You know what this means, don'tcha?


Probably in the spring. But I'm bringing my buddies this time. I need a playmate outside of casino. It's no fun doing the on-shore excursions by myself. I'm the more adventurous type and like things a little challenging physically. My family not so much. Except my nephew but he's only 7 and too small for the cool stuff.
Lunch time. And time for the game. GO DOLPHINS!
More later...

I don't think I'll ever get one of those as the most I've spent in the casino is about 10 bucks. But I won $26.00 so you'd think they'd wanna get their money back right?

Came as a surprise to me and my agent. He's also my BIL. He arranges trips for well-heeled gamblers and babysits them on the boat. I don't have that kind of scratch, but I rate an interior stateroom for myself. Apparently, my play made the casino take notice and now they want me , and my money, to come back.
