Rick Jensen and I are putting the finishing touches on a BJ tournament cruise for this fall. That should be a great way to combine cards and cruising. For details, check out www.blackjacktournaments.com.
The one caribbean cruise I took (a year and a half ago) had a much better game (2d, 60%) than I anticipated considering the negative information I heard about cruise bj when I asked the question. I won't mention the line as I'm hoping it won't change much the next time i go. Of course I went for the vacation and not the bj. Still, it was fun after the wife turned in to go to the casino for a few hours. But frankly I remember the vacation more fondly than the bj anyway! Have a great time.
