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.
free cabin can book via online ah..

Yes on the old system before they started the new PP. As long you earn enough TP points you can book online for free cabin. But ever since late May if i remember correctly the online free cabin redemption was discontinued and only by using GP points can do it online. So now can only call or email them or do it onboard for free cabin. And as others have mentioned it is more tighter now for free cabins for the normal gamblers.

So far the only information we have on the 'plus points' is from kia.
Hope others would come forward with more info.
Do others who are not platinum members get PP also.
We want to know how it is related to the other points they get from gambling.

They keep on changing the Palace benefits.
The last time I was there 2 months ago they gutted the Palace buffet on the 17 floor. Only have soup, salad and desert.
They say can order from menu also. But it is lobster or steak. Lobster is half lobster tail and nothing to write home about.
Steak they call it Wangu steak but it is the same as what you get in the free Chinese restaurant on the 7 floor. I suppose they are too embarrass to call it porterhouse steak like in the Mark Best SH. Anybody who knows steak knows that has a bone in it.

I remember had abalone in the buffet. Alaskan King crab, suckling pig and very fine lamb chop there also in the Palace buffet.

Do we need to take small boat or the cruise at the jetty?
The ship will be anchored outside Deep Sea Port. Small boats will be provided to carry passengers between ship/jetty about 10-15mins journey.

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...
Tender boat in Phuket will takes about 10-15mins journey between ship and jetty. If you are among the first batch of passengers to boat the boat first, you may have to wait onboard this small 'rolling' and sometime stuffy (depends on weather) boat for the rest until boat has enough passengers to move. This could be easily 5 to 15mins waiting and the feeling onboard will not be good for you. Probably you may want to stay onboard at Phuket anchorage. Guess you can only visit Penang.

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.
Last week received SMS about promo to book cruise using this new Plus Points but I do not have any PP (0) to try. Checked online still showing booking by GP.

Can check and share if you are able to see booking using PP and how much are needed? We know you always book over phone but will be interesting to see if their system already showing booking by PP.

Look pretty close to about 25TP same as before for 7400PP to earn extra $100 E-Credit onboard (not what they have given pre-cruise).

Based on your 100TP earned about 32k or 33k PP, that will be around 320 to 330 PP for every 1TP.

Now question is how much needed to redeem a cruise using PP online?

Just login and checked, mine using SGD!
BTW, I have converted most of my PP to e-credits during the trip and balance only a few hundred pp in my account.

You check with them if there is free for you. But still depends on your TP again it is tighter now since they launch PP.

When email provide your membership number, name ,dob and nric no.

Did you see the balance PP online or when you were onboard?

Not sure if it is because you do not have sufficient PP to book online hence showed in SGD, or their tendency to send SMS promotion first without checking if their online System is ready so still show in SGD. Not surprising if their Marketing, Casino and IT departments do not communicate well in line before rolling out this new program.

I checked my PP onboard at the ikiosk.
The left corner bottom showed to-date PP and 1 block above showed This Cruise and available balance PP that can convert to e-credits, something like that.
I have converted all the available pp leaving less than 500pp which doesn't allow further conversion.
