I have been doing some analysis from what is posted above.

Kia did say he clocked about 100 TPs. What he actually spend on this only he would know.

Now 100 TPs would get him 7,300 PP since TP is in SGD and PP is in USD.

Since they now use PP per day I think only the week end gambling cruise would only make sense.

So for Balcony it is 5000 PP.

Now in the recent past I have bought 1 TP for $75 using Roulette ETG.

I am assuming that they have increase this by 20% since this increase is not visible.

This means according to my calculation it would cost $6100 to get this Comp cruise.

Dream Cruise isn't very strict on dress code, wear appropriately will do.

Kia mentioned he earned about 100TP and about 32k to 33k PP. This is close to the chart showing 1TP = est 325PP. He redeemed $100 E-Credit (total $400 + $100 for Dining) per 7300PP same rate as shown in chart of 100PP = $1USD or 7300PP = $73USD or S$100 (1.37 exchange rate).

So for a Balcony of 3D/2N Low Season cruise at 5000PP, you will need to earn about 15.38TP to redeem your next cruise.

In earlier posts, we discussed and estimated about S$150 to S$250 to earn 1TP from Slots. This is approximately rolling (not win or lose) between S$2307 to S$3845 to earn 15.38TP or about 5000PP.

If you wish to try the zipline or rope course you will need to wear shoe.

Yes I see the figure of 325 PP in the chart.
That means my assumption of 20% increase in getting TP is way off the mark.
The increase is an astounding 55.4%.
So it now cost $7900 to go on same cruise we are talking about.

You mention the figure of about $200 for 1 TP playing slots.
My take is the actual play cannot be use. In fact you can win and get TP and cost you better than nothing.

In gambling the 'luck' factor is always in play. In mathematics term it is call 'variance' and you can Google on this subject.

My way of calculating the TP cost is to take the gamble, luck or variance out off the picture. I bet $175 on black and red and $10 on zero. Hit the repeat button until you get 1 TP. I found it cost me $75 previously.

My estimates was based on Slot Plays where Points are awarded after you pressed the Spin or Play button. It does not matter if game result is good or bad. A 5cents denom at full 88credits or $4.40 per spin, you will earn TP faster than playing on a 2cents 88credits Slot. Apparently this is a very complex formula which I have yet to figure out and it looks like based on USD. However from my play experience, I could easily earn few TPs per hour play on Slots similar like Kia.

From your ETG Rapid Roulette, you betted $175 each on Black and Red plus $10 on zero. Total bet amound should be S$360 or about US$262 to get 1TP per game. Think this is very close to my earlier estimation of $250 (on high side) except unsure if it is based on USD value.

absolutely no checks on the dress code loh.. Can see people(apnn) wearing bathrobe and queuing at the 6 lvl front office so many times.. Only zipline,rocking climbing, gym you should wear accordingly.

Very heng last min got a balcony for 21Jun cruise yesterday... really tough since they start the new system.. old system i still can get balcony deluxe but not now.

Been playing on $200 baccarat table with around 50% betting but only manage to clock in 10TP in 3 full shoe. So the based calculations diff on different games.

just to share, u can't use GD free cabin to book sister ship. Only can redeem/board GD.
