Continuous Shuffle-H17-DAS-No surrender- No RSA- BJ paid 3-2 Minimum was $6. There was quite a bit more action then I was expecting, several players were playing blacks every night for multiple hours.
I can confirm that Norwegian's "Breakaway" mega-ship does not offer pai gow tiles :(
Yeah, I've talked to NCL about not having any Fortune PGP, though they do offer the base game; they don't want the exposure for the high-odds payoffs. They also find that, although they've worked hard to offer better, "more Vegas-like" games than the other cruise lines, they don't try to offer games that only serious gamblers want to play. So tiles don't have enough casual gambler appeal for them to go to the effort of training their dealers and offering it.
I do think NCL is offering the best casino opportunities overall, and would recommend them over Carnival's offerings. However, I can't give you specifics about their BJ offerings. They do hold daily (sometimes twice daily) BJ tournaments that are fun. Those may not reflect what their table rules are, but for them it was 6 deck S17 3:2 DAS D10-11 RSA LS .
What's the craps like on the Breakaway?
I was on the Getaway (newest Breakaway class) last March, and the craps was 3-4-5x odds. I would expect Breakaway has the same game.
Here is the trip report
Anyways, I will be cruising in the not so distant future, and wondered if anyone had updates on the conditions for at least the major cruise lines.
See this post with some info on Norwegian Cruise Lines:
I think the best game they had was probably Blackjack, but I don't remember their specific rules.
