Cruises used to be one of the few places one could find a casino outside of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. A cruise ship would leaving port, opening its tables as soon as the ship was three miles offshore in the international waters. The romance of a floating casino has always been attached to the riverboat gambler of the nineteenth century. Even some states have begun to market “gambling cruises to nowhere” that take passengers out beyond the three-mile limit overnight or for the weekend. Cruise lines continue to build bigger and more elaborate onboard casinos, now considered as an essential feature of the cruise experience, and ships ranging from luxury to mainstream all have casinos. One of the best things about gambling at sea is that the dealers and other casino workers aboard are more than willing to help a beginner learn the games, knowing how many passengers are often novice gamblers. Most cruise ship passengers are on vacation to enjoy the cruise, and gambling is just a small part of their trip.
