Default Blackjack on cruise ships

I have noticed that on cruiseships that they seem to use the same deck of cards for a long time. Does anyone remember them opening a NEW deck so that the players could see that all the cards are there?
If only one or two ten value cards are missing the house has a huge advantage.

The house always has the advantage, and they don't need to cheat!

Well you could have a point, but if you worry about that you should stay away from the casino! The dice could be lopsided and the slots rigged. They may not be serving you a filet migon either. The Vegas style show isn't really Vegas style. The comedian isn't all that funny. The water isn't clear enough. They charge too much for pictures. Chair hogs abound.Kids are in the whirlpool when you are not looking.

Anything else.?????

Thank you and have a nice day!

Hi Don
Just noticed your question. That is a good question. I too would like to see new cards unwrapped before I play.

you can ask for the cards to be checked and also for the dice to be examined. They do check before the start of the early shift. At night they check all the cards too, when the casino closes.

Just like in AC and vegas all cards are taken straight from the table put in a box sealed and labeled and sent to the ICCL to be checked. They do this in plain sight so if you stay late you can watch so you know they arent cheating
