I've got a lot of issues with CCL and the Glory. One area that was very good in my opinion was the Casino. The casino staff was freindly and helpful. Best Casino of the 3 CCL ships I have been on.

I only play Blackjack in the casino so I will need to limit any comments to that. CCL has tables for a $5 minimum. So that's the cost to play. Most people at these tables play either 5 or 10 dollars. If you only play 5, you will have lots of company. There are 10 and 25 dollar tables also. The 25 dollar table is usually where the higher gamblers play.

If you want to do Blackjack, I would suggest that you get either a Blackjack software or a book on it. It's a very simple game but there is a commanly accepted system that most people use in determining when or when not to hit. The dealers are well versed in this and they will help sometimes. My suggestion is to follow the advice of a dealer if you can or if they give it. Technically I don't think they are supposed to give it. The dealers are happy when the players win. ( I am assuming that you don't know Blackjack) Please forgive this long paragraph if you already do.

I only play the slots on board. I have not been on Glory yet that is coming in Oct. I have been on the Destiny and Conquest. They have nickle slots on up to $5.00 slots. If you kind of watch you can see if the machines are paying anything or just taking. You can put paper money in the machine or you can feed it change nickles for the nickle machine and quarters for the quarters. My self I like to put the paper money in it lets you play the max with out having to keep adding change.
They have a slot tournament on two of the sea days the cost is 20.00 to play it is a lot of fun. I set a total amount that I can spend each day in the casino. I save that much and then when it is cruise day I'm already. My self I set a daily limit of 40.00. I might not use it all but it is there if I need it and if I win will I'm way ahead on one cruise I hit 2 jackpots in 10 minutes so they do pay. my rule of thumb is to bet the max on the quarter machines they will show you what is the number of plays per game on each machine. some the max is 2 some it is 3 and others go higher. I always start on the ones that are only 2 or 3 quarters max bet. Good luck. Yes the casino crew are very helpful

I'm not a big gambler, but I did have a great time playing Roulet on the Glory. It's the only game I prefer to play, as I usually come out ahead. This time, I broke even with $1 extra in m pocket. My best advice to anyone planning on gambling in the ships casino, take the proper amount of cash with you as the ship will charge you extra money to take cash advances on your sail and sign account, and the ATM's charge $5 to take cash out on your own checking account. Good luck. The staff is friendly, and rather helpful. My only issue with the casino is the smoke. I'm a nonsmoker, so the smoke did give me a bit of a headache. Not a bad complaint considering my cruise was the one that missed ports due to engine/propellor failure.

You actually dont need to save and carry around heavy change. Just save and bring along paper money for your gambling allowance. The casino will give you coins in trade for your paper money, or you can load your dollar bills right into the machiene.

The best advise I received about gambling was from our friend Thomas. It was:

1. take a certain amount of money into the casino and when you lose it, LEAVE.

2. leave by midnight (I *think* that was Thomas' magic time....) because by then you've had too much to drink to make good decisions.

I added my own rule which was to leave if I made a significant profit. I bet $1 on roulette, won $35 and jumped up and ran! Of course I came back later to lose most of that....
