Genting policy, publicly announced is to cut back on Comps for the average gamblers not only for RWAS but the whole Genting group of companies. High Rollers would not do badly as I understand they are putting Platinum holders in Palace now.
PP for High Rollers would separate them from the average gamblers.
Gamblers would still get TP and GP which can be used for onboard purchases.
Only High Rollers would get the additional PP if they play in the high limit gambling area/rooms.
Plus Points aka PP replaced GP, they are the same, everyone can earn PP. The different is that you need to convert PP to E-credits at the ikiosk. 7400PP = 100 e-credits.
I just came back from Philippines trip, clocked quite an amount of PP. Redeemed $500 free play on the first day, $400 e-credits and $100 f&b but I lost the printout for my F&B voucher .
The entitlement for Palace guests have apparently dropped during my recent Philippines trip, entitled one dine at paid restaurant per day and cannot repeat to dine at the same restaurant for the entire trip. The food at deck 17 has also dropped compare to my previous Vietnam trip. I remembered during my Vietnam trip, the soup at deck 17 was filled with abalones everyday, but for the Philippines trip I only got to see 4 tiny abalones at my Hot pot meal for the entire trip.

Platinum holders not always get Palace, bro. My 21 Jun trip is Balcony cabin, My 26/7 slot tournament trip is still on waiting list, still don't have cabin for me despite I clocked over 100tp this Philippines trip. Still waiting for my agent to reply me.

The PP sounds like an old point system think was World Point with large number of 7 to 1 conversion ratio. As if they really want to drill down to the cents decimal to earn and redeem cabin.

Any idea how much Tier Point to earn your 7400PP?

The E-Credit earning has been there for sometime where you get $50 for earning 15TP, another $50 at 25TP and so on.

The nearest shopping place is at Phuket Town which is about 15mins away by taxi. There is a small shopping plaza and some street shops.

The biggest shopping mall is Jungceylon which is almost opposite of the island about 45mins away depending on traffic condition. Most shops only open from about 11am so basically you dont get much time to shop if you go there since cruise will departs about 3pm.

I usually "aga aga" only. When I swapped my card at ikiosk, I see 100tp and PP was about 32k or 33k, so roughly how many tp earned for each 7400 redemption? hmmm... I lazy to calculate leh.

You can try Central Festival Phuket


The small shopping plaza at Phuket Town is Ocean Shopping Mall.


The cruise will anchor outside Phuket Deep Sea Port and the jetty is below

Not surprising especially is a long weekend coincides with National Day (Friday) and Hari Raya Haji (Monday). This is a 4D/3N Penang/Phuket Cruise instead of the usual 3D/2N weekend Bintan cruise.

I have booked 9/8 too.
Must take tender boat to Phuket, hesitate should I try or not...
GD experienced heavy storm last Wednesday and Thursday, the ship was rocking on Thursday midnight. Surprisingly, I didn't feel seasick at all, accordingly to my sister who visited the clinic on Friday morning, the clinic was packed with seasick paxes...

Usually for super long weekends have to book at least 4 to 5 months in advanced. I guess the 9aug was sold out since May.

I booked the 9Aug dep online on 2Jan and they still have free balcony deluxe cabin back then. Current free cabin redemtpion have to call them more troublesome.

Do we need to take small boat or the cruise at the jetty?
