Not ALL the BJ tables are computerized. They have 3 or 4 tables of blackjack that are done with a computer. Much like the poker tables, it's basically like playing on-line. They tend to keep these games low limit (Like $3 min) but few people play them. Those that do have to put up with not only people who have no idea how to play blackjack, but people that don't know how to play on the computer system. So it makes for very slow play. They play for "fun" on embarkation day to get people used to the machines since they can play with fake money. It fun to sit there and play for a bit... but I have not played with real money....

They still have regular dealer played tables, BUT they all use the continuous shuffle machine shoe. (Except for the Super Fun 21 tables which will hand shuffle and have a real shoe because of the absence of the Q's from the decks which makes the continuous shoes unusable since the number of cards is not correct)
