Default Black Jack tables

Do the tables in the casino fill up?

Do you have to pay for drinks in the casino?

What is the minimum bet allowed?

Yes the tables fill up, yes you pay for drinks and the minimum I've seen is $5. And of course the $5 tables fill up first and seem to stay full.

The only note I have to add to the above is that on our recent Victory cruise the lowest table minimum was $10.

Hi,

I called the Carnival call center a few weeks ago and inquired about the Conquest casino. I was told there are 12 Blackjack tables, 1 roulette, 2 Caribbean Stud tables, 1 Caribbean Draw and 1 Craps table. She said the denom. are from $3.00-100.00. She also said they have 278 slot machines on this ship and you can use your Sail and Sign card to buy tokens/chips, provided you have the credit to pay for them at the end of the week! Good Luck!

Now wait just one minute !

I hope that someone is misinformed. If the table minimus are now $10 that is going to put a serious crimp in my plans.

Please someone tell me that there are $5 and occaisionally lower minimums.

I might have to bring a book to read or somethin' . YIKES !

Carnival Conquest had $5 tables. If you are an experienced Black Jack player, please pay attention as a couple of the dealers were a little "off" sometimes and had to be challenged. The pit bosses were astute and resolved the issues.

Have Fun!

The lowest I have ever seen is $5, and those are few and far between. Most are $10 and up.

On the Conquest there is a game called "Fun 21." It's rules are the same as Blackjack. The only difference is that all the Queens are removed from the deck. If you do some figuring, it's an extra 4 or 5 percent edge for the "house." Don't play that one.

On the Elation in May, there were always at least two $5 minimum tables. I never had a problem getting a seat, though there were several players always betting $10. Ticked the you-know-what out of me, but since I could always get a seat, I didn't let it faze me!

Other tables had a minimum bet between $10 - $25.

Also, to add:

If there's a table not beting used, sometimes you can request a table to be opened. Never had to do it, but I've talked to some who were able to convince the casino to open another $5 table - of course, it quickly filled up!

What pissed you off about someone playing $10 at a $5 table. The $5 is the minimum, not the maximum. In Vegas I'll play at a $10 table for hours without betting under $25 a hand. Does that mean I have to sit at the $25 minimum table?

Wrong! Fun 21 is a very good game for the experienced BJ player with good basic strategy knowledge.
