    Last week on my Alaskan cruise I was a little tilted after losing a few hundred quickly in the morning so for the first time in my life I bet $25 a hand on JOB. The 5th draw was a decent one...

    Yeah the funny part is we slept in a little and i got up without showering to head to get a free bloody mary at the casino leaving my wife to get ready for breakfast. After about 15 minutes of gambling i order another bloody. At this point i am down %300 on slots in 20 minutes and getting irritated so i move to a video poker. I quickly lose another $100 and was like F it so I went up to $25 a bet. On the 5th draw i hit the Royal and was waiting on my handpay. Now my wife starts messaging me asking where i was and that she was hungry. I message her something came up and it will be a few minutes. After abouit 15 more minutes i finally meet up with her at the Windjammer, we get our food, and sat down. She repeats what the crap took you so long? Thats when i pull the 2 stacks of $10k and set them on the table. She stopped complaining pretty quickly at that point.

    How do taxes work on a cruise ship? As a Canadian, I will get dinged 30% for larger wins in the US. Does that happen on cruise ships that may be in international waters?

    I'll have to pay taxes as always on a cruise ship. I think in the 25-30% range.

    Great hit! I was just in Alaska on the Carnival Miracle. We're you on Celebrity cruise? We saw that ship in port.
