Default Blackjack on Princess

My wife and I are sailing on Island Princess in April, and like to play blackjack on board. It has been over two years (way too long) since our last cruise. Can someone who has been on Island Princess (or any Princess ship) recently tell me what table minimums are now? Also, is Princess still paying 3:2 for blackjack, or are they paying 6:5?

Thanks!

I was on the Island Princess a while ago. I do play a little blackjack but I can't remember exactly what they did. Seems to me they had a 6:5 payout but had a 3:2 on a table with higher minimums. How's that for a big help? Nice ship.

We were on the Crown last July Here is the rundown:

6 decks in a Continuous shuffling machine
Blackjack pays 3:2
Minimum $10 - maximum $500
Dealer hits soft 17
Split any pair - no extra cards or re-split on split aces
Double any two card hand
Double after split
Surrender is not offered

Have a good rime. Andy

While on Caribbean Princess last October I noticed several blackjack tables with $5.00 minimums.

I just got off the Crown Princess a week ago and most of the blackjack tables had a $5 minimum. One table was at $10 minimum. They all have the continuous shuffle machines which neither my wife nor myself will play at. The one hand shuffled game was fun 21 which is the same as Spanish 21 only the queens are removed from the deck instead of the 10's.

Good luck,

Dicenator
