While onboard the Island Princess, I did "work" for awhile in the casino, as a Casino Host.
As part of "the job" I got to deal cards for the Blackjack tournament. Imagine that! They were crazy enough to let me near casino chips. It was pretty funny, watching cards and chips fly in a such a ridiculous manner, by an amateur. Too bad there was no video, because the real dealers were ROFL.
And then the next day I "hosted" the Slot Tournament.
Going to combine the experiences to write an article about "Working in a ship's casino" for CruiseMates, and hope to have it ready soon.
There so much more going on than one might think. There is really is an Art of the Deal.
