They do and had four tables going for the tournament - $60 buy in.

Wifi on a 100% of the ship - not free - $.40 to $.75 per miinute depending on the plan you select.

20 nights on the Gem so far and the casino has not been kind

Just returned from the Gem and the casino was very kind to one lady. If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I wouldn't believe it. She hit 4 different machines (2 cent to 25 cent) for a total of $10,460! Nice Christmas present.

Yes, they do have Texas Hold 'Em tables. The also have an area for the high rollers (which was crowded each night).

we are onboard her right now(Great New Years Party!) wifi in your room, but u still have to pay for your minutes usage which is ;
plan 1 at $.40 per minute u get 250 minutes for $100
plan 2: at $.55 per minute u get 100 minutes for $55.00
then u have pay as u go at $.75 per minute
not quite as expensive as a phone sex line per minute but pretty close!

bring Insect repellent for the private island in the Bahamas. OFF etc.
the casino has many tournaments ...blackjack,poker, texas hold em, slots, they need get quicker croupeirs on the craps tables though.
i will give a full report on my return home and after we get back from Canada next week for a business trip.
two weeks away from home our cats are going to miss us.
