You may be sat there right now planning your next vacation, and if you are something of a gambler then one place that could be right at the top of your list of places to visit is Las Vegas.
However, many people are also looking for an even more exclusive and unusual type of experience when they jet off on their annual holiday, and more and more people are opting to go on a cruise, and there are plenty of them to pick and choose from.
On all cruise ships that I have ever found myself on, I have always noticed a large casino is on offer, and those casinos tend to offer every type of casino game you will have access to when in a land based casino.
But the odds do appear to be stacked even more against you when you step foot inside a cruise ships casino and start playing any of their casino games.
Take for example the game of Blackjack, players are well versed at being able to spot the best variants to play, however those games will rarely be available in a cruise ships casino, and as such you are going to have to put up with high house edges due to game play rules such as a winning players Blackjack hand paying 6/5 as opposed to 3/2.
Roulette games are more than likely going to be the American double zero variant rather than the much lower house edge games of French and European Roulette, and the slot machines and video poker machines of which there will be hundreds available on most cruise ships, will be set with some very low payout percentages too!
