This place is a rip off! They attempt to take your money when u actually have won in black jack and watch what the max bets are. They will change the max bet in the middle of the hand and not honor your bet. Place is a scam!

Their slots are not too generous, either...however we ''were'' UP at one time and pushed it....but that seems to be the way slots go, eh? We should have taken our money when it was there to take. It so happened that we played the slots and had over $200 in winnings (over and above what we had into it) we could have cashed in on...but it happened the first 15 minutes we played. I always hate it when that happens because I never have the sense to quit quite ''that'' early...lol. Does anyone?

Adam. Most people here could tell you I am not an employee...I am just a local who often likes to compliment our fine area we live in...rather than only being negative. I enjoy participating in the local Patch articles. That said...your criticism is ''somewhat'' reasonable from your point of view and experience...but overall you are too harsh in your comments based on what a bargain this activity is. Your experience is obviously not typical of most others that have been on this cruise. As as far as your silly comment about me or others checking the site often simply to make responces....???...that simply shows you are new to Patch blogs and don't realize there is automatic email notification when someone like yourself adds a comment. Then again, you could simply be a d/bag.

Visiting for the week and looking for some entertainment. Anyone know the details of the blackjack games on board? I like to play but don't like automatic shufflers where they put every hand into the shuffler and there's never a break in play (the other type of shuffler where the entire shoe is swapped out for a new shuffled shoe is okay).

Sam...Don't go on this boat for some serious gambling. You can have some fun doing it on this boat...but remember....this is mainly just a boat ride out and back that has nice music, some decent food, great views, ocean air...all at a bargain price...and some light gambling fun where if you get lucky...then you are really lucky. The boat trip is not really all that long. If you are visiting the area and want to ''really'' gamble. Drive over to Tampa and go to The Hardrock.
