I guess that is Royal Caribbean. How did you do? Did it seem like the game was on the up and up?

Correct. I was playing with less than perfect bs and no cc. Good old fashion ploppy at the time! Got my ass KICKED! I couldn't tell you if the game was on the up and up to be honest. Dealer suggested that I move over to a shoe game instead of playing heads up, sd. I did so and continued to get my ass kicked!

Be very wary of cruise ship games. See my earlier post: http://www.blackjackinfo.com/bb/showthread.php?t=20965

I'm no scholar of admiralty law.

According to the UN Convention on Law of the Sea, Part 7, Section I, Article 92:

"Ships shall sail under the flag of one State only and, save in exceptional cases expressly provided for in international treaties or in this Convention, shall be subject to its exclusive jurisdiction on the high seas."

If you want to see a list of nation-states that have signed this convention:
http://treaties.un.org/pages/ViewDet...ter=21&lang=en

Then again, article 91 restricting the use of 'flags of convenience' is freely ignored by signatories.

1. Every State shall fix the conditions for the grant of its nationality to ships, for the registration of ships in its territory, and for the right to fly its flag. Ships have the nationality of the State whose flag they are entitled to fly. There must exist a genuine link between the State and the ship.
