Fine Print

Rated play from previous trips with this casino, any of the casino’s affiliated brands, or from previous URComped trip(s) will initially be used to determine if a player qualifies for this offer.

If there is no tracked play history with the casino or URComped to consider, qualification for this offer will be evaluated based on one or more of the following:

  • Images of complimentary cruise offers directly from the cruise line’s casino department.
  • Comp cruise certificates offered from land-based casinos. *An invitation to a certificate event at a casino can be accepted in lieu of the actual certificate.
  • Images of complimentary room + free play offers from land-based casinos.
  • Play history provided by Player’s casino host
  • Unless specified cannot be combined with other offers

URComped can generally pre-qualify players based on offer images within 2 business days (and often within a couple of hours).

Not everyone that requests an offer will qualify. The qualification criteria for this offer is set by the casino, not URComped. All requests are subject to final approval by the casino.

All URComped offers are for players that URComped has booked at the property or cruise line in the past OR for New or Inactive players to the specific casino partner. Players that are house coded or active with the requested casino partner will be unable to receive this offer through URComped.

All offers are based on availability and subject to change without notice.

Frequently asked questions about MSC Cruises

While on-board
Do we get free drinks?

Yes! Players who book through URComped get free drinks while playing in the casino.

Do they have craps?

MSC Cruises will have a craps table on MSC Meraviglia this August 2023.

In the Casino
Can you smoke in the casino?

There is a designated smoking area in the casino with some slot machines, but smoking is not allowed at table games.

 MSC Cruises' Smoking Policy does permit smoking in several bars on each ship, and on one side (indicated by signage) of the principal outdoor pool deck areas, where ashtrays are provided. 

Status Matching
How do I check on the status of my "Status Match" request with MSC?

You may call the Voyagers club at 877-665-4655 and hit prompt 5.

Does MSC offer status match?

Yes. Apply before your next cruise & MSC will match your status from other hotel & cruise line loyalty programs

Will MSC reduce the point requirement for casino cruise certificates?

That is something that we've talked to MSC about. The MSC onboard certificates have a higher point requirement than other cruise lines. For example, 10,000 points on MSC would get an inside cabin certificate, but on Royal Caribbean would get a balcony cabin certificate. It is a very high threshold, and we've definitely made it known to them. They are working on a new structure for their loyalty program. We are not sure what the timeline is on that, but they definitely know that their certificate program is a little bit out of line with the rest of the market.

In addition, we're working on getting more offers from MSC which we can promote, and typically give a better offer than the certificate that was earned.

How does MSC Status Match work?

If you are a frequent traveler and have a rewards card with any land-based casinos or other cruise companies, MSC will match that up to their equivalent status onboard prior to your sailing. Before you sail, you should go on to msccruises.com and click on “Voyagers Club” and sign up for the status match program in order to receive all of those benefits from when you first experience MSC. You'll send a photo of the reward card that you want to be matched with on MSC. ALWAYS use the highest tier card that you have.

Because of what's been happening lately, MSC has extended all ”Voyagers Club” player's tier status until December 2021.

So if you enrolled and your status expires in 2020, that's going to be extended to 2021, along with those who enroll in 2021, will be extended to 2022.

How does MSC determine future comps?

Your play on an MSC cruise will determine what level comp you will receive on your next MSC cruise. MSC, at the moment, has its “On-Board Reward Program as part of the Voyagers Club Loyalty Program, which has many benefits including their status match.

MSC determines your future comps based on win-loss, average daily theoretical (ADT), and Average daily win. The MSC offers you see on your URComped "my offers" page will be reflective of your previous play with MSC.

While On Board
In the Casino
What is the casino experience like with MSC?

MSC's casinos are top-of-the-line. They have a nice European modern design. They have a wide variety of slots with all of the denominations, and they are always refreshing their slots so you can walk in and see the newest games. They have good product table games and types. They allow all the side bets on their games and even cart single, zero roulette for those who prefer a European- style roulette.

Is there a fee for pulling out money in MSC's Casino?

Pulling out cash in the casino or accessing money does not require a fee with MSC. When you use your cruise card, either by giving it to the pit boss at the tables or inserting it into the player tracking system on-board, there is no convenience fee. MSC doesn't charge for you downloading funds onto the slot machine or buying chips at the tables.

Also, there is not a limit on the amount you can download or amount you can request, as long as you have it on your folio and have the funds available.

All Inclusive
Outside of the casino, what is the atmosphere on MSC cruises like?

MSC is a global cruise line. They go to over 200 different destinations and carry at least 180 different nationalities thus the ships have a very international atmosphere where everybody mixes together.

You'll feel of the Mediterranean flair in which MSC is known for, as well as experience some of the best shows on the ocean. If you go on one of MSC's newest ships, such as the Bellissima, the Meraviglia, which sometimes sails from New York, then you can even catch the “Cirque du Soleil at Sea.” You can either do a dinner show or you can just go in there for a cocktail and the show itself.

Does MSC have plans to expand throughout the United States?

MSC has heavily invested in making Miami their US home. In the next couple of years, they’re going to be building their newest terminal which is going to fit two mega-ships on the same day. It's going to be the largest terminal in port Miami.

MSC is also looking at new destinations and new ports to embark in.

They did a few sailings last year on the “MSC Meraviglia” out of New York City and they have new sailings starting again out of New

York staring September 22nd. At the same time, the MSC Armonia, which is currently in Miami, will relocate to Tampa and it’ll start doing 4-5 day cruises out of Tampa.

Does MSC give Win-Loss statements and W-2s?

MSC doesn't supply a win-loss statement or W-2s. So as a player, the burden is on you to track your wins and losses on MSC. But if you hit a jackpot over $1200, MSC doesn't do a W-2 form that you have to fill out. MSC stays out of the American tax system in regards to casino players.

Casino Comping
How do comps work on MSC?

Similar to other cruise casinos, you use your room key, or cruise card when playing in order to track and accumulate points. MSC's average is $3.00= 1 point across-the-board. So on the slots, three dollars of coin-in, gives you one point.

If you earn 1200 points or more on a seven-day cruise, then you will automatically receive a voucher for thirty percent off a cruise, for your next cruise.

Once you reach 10,000 points, you're now into the cabin and stateroom categories. From there, the more points you earn, then the higher cabin categories you get all the way up to “Yacht Club” which is the premier cruising experience on MSC.

Something unique about MSC's certificates is that they aren't limited to a list of sailings. The certificates are for ten nights or less anywhere they sail. So you can choose from any itinerary with any destination on any ship unless the sailing is sold out. Plus, if you're comped, it's totally free! 

The motto with MSC, ”Free means free.” So once you receive an offer from URComped or you receive a certificate on-board from your play, then your cruise is absolutely free. MSC takes care of port fees and taxes

How do comped drinks work on MSC?

Qualified URComped players who receive an offer from URComped to sail on MSC or a player who receives a certificate on-board, will qualify for complimentary drinks while they’re playing in the casino. Their guest will also receive comp drinks.

What kind of incentives is MSC offering to get people to re-book?

Instead of paying a $200 per person deposit ($400 total for a stateroom), which is refundable onboard their sailing, players now only have to pay $100 per person ($200 total for a stateroom) for the deposit.

For those who have had their cruises canceled, be sure to check out MSC's website for the most current travel updates and information regarding FCC, what can be refunded, how far out they can cancel if you're worried about a future cruise. Currently, in April 2020, MSC is offering 125% future cruise credit. Until the end of September MSC has the “Cruise Assurance Program” which allows guests to cancel 48 hours before sailing

Anybody books into a suite stateroom or above a suite or Yacht Club, will get free Wi-Fi

If players earned a comp stateroom certificate or an onboard certificate with a percentage off their next cruise and it’s expired now in 2020, MSC is extending expiration dates until the end of December 31st, 2020.
