A Cruise to the Western Caribbean
It has been a while since we investigated a cruise
getaway. This year a cruise to the Western Caribbean was the getaway of choice.
Rather than start at the whole beginning of the trip I will move forward the
arriving at the cruise line with great expectations of a relaxing vacation. The
inevitable line to get to a counter and tickets was compounded by being served
by someone who must have been in his 80's. It came as little surprise that he
has computer "issues" and there went over an hour of my life waiting
got something that the people around us appeared to get resolved in 10 minutes.
Oh well, smile and continue. There were different choices than our last cruise
as regarding moving ones bags. The cruise line allowed us to take our bags with
us rather than leave them at the curb and hope and pray they arrived at our
cabin eventually. We took this choice naturally and indeed appeared to be the
quickest way to get unpacked and ready to enjoy.
The last few cruises appeared to indicate that if one was a gambler then by far
the best time to have the best time of gaining ground on the slot machines was
the first night. On our last cruise one could here bells ringing all over and
the jingle of dollar coins flying out of the machines like machine guns being
fired around the casino. This time it all seemed quite quiet. One could almost
hear the cards clicking on the tables. Ok, let's see if the system still works.
Looking at the variety of slot machines I noticed to my horror they had all
been updated. I couldn't find one with a way to hold lines while the others
rotated. In short all reels appeared to run together. No talent could be used
to gain an advantage. This was a war whereby the opposition (the darned
machine) would pay "when it decided" rather than allow me a chance of
inputting a potential personal advantage. The choices ultimately were only the
amount I would be able to bet or in my case lose. Decision made to not return
