This is a gambling tale, yet I'm not a gambler. I'd never played in a cruise ship casino before researching this article. This is a tale of how I won a "free" cruise at Royal Caribbean's Casino Royale

Free casino cruises excite me. Were they mythological or high-roller-only? Could I start with nothing, take one cruise, and gamble to pay for another? Once I had the concept, I couldn't let go.

Each tier level includes with bonuses and discounts; after reaching Prime, you earn a free cruise at the conclusion of the programme year. 

Prime members enjoy a free inside cabin and complimentary beverages at the casino bar once the level is met.
