Default Two Grand Princess questions

Thank You in advance for your assistance.
These questions apply to the Grand Princess

Question # 1:
How many times odds can you back up Pass Line and Come Bets??

Question # 2
What are BlackJack rules?
Specifically does the dealer hit soft 17?
Double after splitting allowed?

Can't help with craps odds, as its not my game. But for #2...
the dealers say on soft 17... u can double on any two cards.. and u can split up to 4 times, except Aces.

Regards.

Thanks for the BJ info. Wow, I am very surprised that they stay on soft 17. Since the passengers have no other choice I thought they would have less favorable rules.

O.K. Now if someone knows the answer to the Craps question I'll be set.

What they've got is a whole pile of passengers who have never played BlackJack, and will gladly donate their money <G>

What I've always said about playing BlackJack on cruises.... Be prepared to see ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.
Each trip it seems to be something different. On our last Princess cruise in Jan THE thing to do seemed to be to stay on a soft 17. They must have watched the dealer do it and thought it was a good idea.

Regards,
Kuki

Sorry, never sailed on the Grand Princess, but from what I have seen on other ships (mostly Carnival), it is only single odds.

Never sailed on the Grand but I've been on the Ocean & Sea Princess. Both stayed on soft 17 and allowed only single odds craps.
These rules really belong in the grip section. They are not outragous, but do add sightly to the houses favor. You'll see the blackjack rules elsewhere, but any crap table on land would be emply giving only single odds. With so many rookies on board, the ship is going to do better on the volume than any normal casino under any rules. They don't need the extra edge. Personally, I find it unconscionable. My advice; save it for port.
