  1. HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO AAAAmerican: I am glad that you concur with me. Usually someone that makes such a claim has no statistical evidence to support their claim. Can hardly wait for 09/05. Love Pizza day. You have some of the most interesting little known facts in your posts.
  2. HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO Ny Alesund: Do you have any statistical evidence to back up your claim that a casino only exists on a cruise ship to be a profit center for the cruise line? When an NCL ship or a RCL ship pull into port do passengers sit in the now closed casino waiting for it to open again?
  3. HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO Ny Alesund: Going on a cruise ship is not the same as going to a casino resort. First, cruising came about as a means of travel to get from point A to point B. Even after WWll there was no airline that made money bringing passengers from place to place. Airlines didn't start to overtake cruise ships until the mid '60's. In fact back on those days you had to dress for dinner. There weren't that many things to do on a ship. In the '60's cruise ships had to change or go out of business all together. My wife, who went on some cruises in the '70's informs me that the casinos on a ship were not that large. Many of the games they have in a casino today they didn't have. Not every line had a casino on board a ship. When casinos became popular then the cruise lines made them larger in response to demand. Not if we build it they will come. Also, when you pay your fare for the cruise you get many things included, (meals, shows, movies). You go to a casino resort you get your room. Meals you get on your own, want to see a show, not included. Your assertion that a cruise ship would not exist without a casino is false. Viking line does not have a casino. Nor does any company that does river cruising. And neither does Disney Cruise Line.

    Carnival Players Club

    HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO Fellow Casino Denizens: There is nothing wrong with the Carnival Casinos. This includes all the lines they own. The rules of play are pretty straight forward. If they were complicated people wouldn't be playing in them. Know the rules of play for whatever game you choose to play. If you know the rules well and all the possible permutations of the game at best you only have a 50% chance of winning. In gambling there is no guarantee you will win. If you don't like the payout then either move to a high roller table or play something else. Stick with games that give the House a lower edge.

    Found Casino Chips in pocket!

    HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO TV Lady3: You could even play casino games using those chips if you wanted to. Personally, I like to save chips from ships I have played in the casino. Even from those I haven't played in the casino.

    HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO TVLady3: We both remember you. My wife, Rosalie, sends her very best wishes. We cruised on the Carnival Dream. We went to the first ever Carnival Brunch which are held on sea days. They are now called Sea Day Brunch. They are better than when we went. We keep on cruisin. We haven't quite made it to #57 as yet. Our next cruise is #27.

    who believes this theory

    HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO markf: What you are spouting is utter nonsense. The slots are not loose on certain days and not others. The R.N.G. is set in the factory where the slot machine is manufactured. There is no way to reset the odds on a given slot other than sending it back to the factory and give the machine another R.N.G. Used to work in a Hotel with a casino. Employees are not allowed to play table games, but, they are allowed to play slot machines. Why? Because of the R.N.G.

    Carnival Casino Dilemma/Question

    HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO vache: That is the smart thing to do. Just got off the Carnival Horizon this morning. Found in my on-board mailbox an offer for another cruise. However, if they check, we are already booked for another cruise. Have to call them about that.

    HHHHHEEEEELLLLLLLLLLOOOOO CM1984: Since you have been in the Eurodam Casino, does that ship have a craps table?
