Millions of people like to gamble. It is a very popular hobby for many but in the USA it can be difficult with so many states banning it. Not everyone wants to go to Vegas, Atlantic City or the reservations. You can’t gamble online so what’s the answer? Combine your hobby and your vacation.
Most cruise ships have extensive gambling facilities available as soon as you reach international waters. So while your wife is off in the spa being pampered, you can hit the tables and the pair of you meet up in the evening. What can be more perfect?
Most cruise ships take great care to make the whole cruise experience as smooth as possible, so the casino will have all the games you expect using the same rules. If they differ they will no doubt tell you so there is no confusion.
Most cruises last for at least a week if not longer and they call in at several ports along the way. Most of these will be in countries that allow gambling so there will be minimal interruption for you. Whilst on the ship take advantage of the other wonderful facilities available. Wander round the deck, taking the sea air and stretching your legs. If nothing else it will clear your mind and help you concentrate on the cards.
Don’t forget the vacation part of your trip. It is all to easy to not leave the boat for a few hours and see a different culture, although most ports are pretty international with all the shops and chains you’d expect.
Don’t allow yourself to be carried away by the gambling. Do as you would usually do, play to your normal game plan and don’t exceed your gambling budget each day. That way you’ll have a great time and with a bit of luck come out of your vacation richer than you went in.
