according to the ocean players club the dealer stands on soft 17 the link is here http://www.oceanplayersclub.com/games/blackjack.asp .... and if you want to know about any other stuff in the casino www.oceanplayersclub.com is a great resource to overall information about the casino games and how to play.

Another question for you:Are there single deck games and if so are the 6-5 pay games?

I highly doubt there are single deck games... just the thought makes me want to let you now I have a great ability of counting cards.. if we played 1 deck everyone would be winners.. or know when to get out cause odds are against you for the remainder of the deck..

They defeat the counters chances by shorting the blackjack payouts and eliminating mid deck entry.

Carnival doesnt have a SD game. RCCL does/did with a $25 min. Multi deck games are 8D with about 75% pen

RCCL hits soft 17 CCL and its affiliates dont. That makes big differance in the odds so beware.

Ive never seen them short payouts for BJ however they dont allow mid-deck entry (wonging) into SD games. Thats pretty much a no-brainer. No problem with multi-deck games besides ploppers.
