Default pacific sun cruise ship

Hellos peeps,

I am going on a cruise later this year, the Pacific Sun and i am hoping on the off chance that someone might know the playing conditions. (crossed fingers no CSM)

Oh and what kind of heat do people find on cruise ships

Thanks for any help

Be aware that at least one well-known cruise line has a posted plaque informing their guests that not only won't they tolerate card counting, but they will seize your chips, not just your profits.

Generally, conditions on a cruise ship are, at best, lackluster;
and at worst, unplayably wretched.

Expect 8 decks with poor penetration -- as a general rule.

How do they know if you are counting? They have crappy pit bosses and dealers knowing nothing about counting. That is why the corp headquarter need to have strong words against counting before they launch the ship. You just pretend you are a ploppie getting lucky!

it's pretty easy to look for, once you know what to look for.
