The book is about what takes place behind-the-scenes as told by a lady croupier. If you think the guests are having fun, wait until you see what goes on with the crew members.
Actually, there's a lot more to the book than just fun and games. I learned what it's like to actually work on a cruise ship. It's so different than any other job that I can imagine. Even though it's a fascinating occupation, there's a tremendous amount of pressure that comes with the job as well. No wonder the crew likes to unwind whenever they can.
One of the things I liked best about the book was the descriptions of the exotic places the cruise ship visited. Most were off the beaten 'tourist' path. These are the discoveries that only someone who's been there many times would know about. They were described with such detail that I felt like I was right there with them. It's a wonderfully written book.
As I said, the lead character is a croupier in the ship's casino...so there's a lot of good advice and funny stories about the gambling side of cruise ships as well. From the front cover to the last page... I was hooked! If I could give it ten stars...I would!
This is well worth the time spent reading it.
Cara made her living as a casino dealer on this cruise ship and throughout the story I found myself at the gambling tables filling my head with more insight than I ever dreamed of. Numbers, gamblers and those that gamble. "A Gambler Knows to Celebrate A Win Tonight Because Tomorrow Might Be A Loss." Now I know what a Counter is and now I know a few `non-fail' proof systems.
"In Life As In Cards, Never Show Them You Are Nervous". "Next stop, Rio de Janeiro, the City of hot nights and beautiful women." I probably enjoyed the visits to other countries the best, but if I go to a casino, I'll be re-reading this book.
A romantic trip to beautiful places - highly recommended.
