We just did our first URComped cruise on RC, Rhapsody Of The Sea out of Tampa.  We have cruised 35 times with Carnival, so we jumped ship to go with URComped.  Lexie was the greatest working out all the details for us. The ship crew, shows, meals was outstanding. The casino staff was outstanding also. We like the smaller ships and The Rhapsody of the Sea was just right for us. I am a Craps player, so I just want to give all other craps players a heads up. Unless you bet $25.00 on the pass line you can only play single odds.  Out of all the casinos I have played in counting Carnival this was the first time I have ever see this done. This really hurt my way of playing. This is nothing against the casino of it's staff. This is a Casino Royale rule. Just this one rule increases the house odds nearly 1% with each loss of the player. And over a seven day cruise it cut into my winnings.

Is there a minimum bet requirement on  the blackjack tables? Also, how much time in the casino is expected on a 7 day cruise?

I play very little blackjack but I noticed there was different mins on each table. I try to play four hours per day to keep my rating up. On this cruise there was very few crap players so I couldn’t play as I wanted to do.

What was the pass line minimum? I'll play double odds on $15 pass line (and that is pushing the limits with my usual buy-in) but $25 is steep if you are backing with a come bet and/or placing 6/8.

Also, would they let you up to $30 odds if the point was 5 or nine?

The table min is $5. Pass line min is $5 with single odds. Double odds can be bet on a $25 bet.
