I would like to start off by saying I had a great time on the cruise to Nova Scotia. People were great, food was good, weather couldn't of been better and seas were calm. Now I have been on the Disney Cruise where guest are taken care of no matter what complaint it may be. On the last night of the cruise I experienced something unlike I have never had to deal with, Let me first say that I live 20 minutes from Atlantic City NJ..

I was playing black jack on the last night of the cruise, and low and behold I catch the dealer cheating, now in most cases some might say this was just an oversight or a mistake in math. But...I had to get loud and draw attention to myself to get a pit boss over to see the wrong doing. after I proved the dealer was wrong...(dealer had 23 and I had 19. dealer took everyone's chips) but I said. stop don't touch those cards. and asked for a pit boss 3 times.....after being paid my winnings...I asked if he was going to continue to deal at that table. and the pit boss informed me that he would remain.....I felt that I could no longer stay there in good standing and play knowing this guy was pulling a fast I had to leave the table. In Atlantic City and Las Vegas, most cases that dealer is replaced just for comfort reasons.....I cant believe that Carnival even though in International waters would allow this practice. I doubt I would ever cruise carnival again....And my sympathy goes out to those on the 1st and 2nd decks who had to breath Diesel fuel the entire trip, some rooms were so bad you couldn't sleep in them.....Get it together Carnival, to many other cruise lines out there to choose from.
