    Hey guys, I just wanted to see what our thoughts are on this matter.

    I just received a Grazie offer for 3 nights, $500 free play, and a voucher for a Princess Cruise Line trip. This is an offer I saw on my account and booked by calling casino marketing. Is there anything wrong with me doing this vs. booking through my host? Thanks!

    No.

    But you can always call your host to book an offer like that.

    nothing wrong. you just saved the host a little work.
    The host still knows your trip and gets any credit same as he booked for you.

    I would double check that information. I remember Hunter saying in his thread once that if you book online (at least for CET), he won't know you're there unless you make him aware. He said there is no issues with booking online, just make sure to let him know so he can put it in his notes / calendar. That's what I remember him saying anyways, I could be WAY off

    You could be right about CET which I know almost nothing about.
    The OP was asking about Grazie.

    Unless you are going to get something else from, or meet up with the host, it does not appear it matters even at CET.

    As to the original question - for most people, the host will just give you one of the existing marketing offers. So, in the end, you get about the same thing as if you just called in.

    There's nothing wrong with doing it that way, but a host can bring you in on the same offer and possibly get you more than 3 nights upfront if you want them.

    Thanks for the info! Should I communicate to my host that I'll be coming in? If so, when is the appropriate timeframe to do so?
