Eat Before You Sail

A group of friends recently invited my husband and me to join them on the Diamond Casino Boat.  We’re not big gamblers, but their website promised live entertainent, food, and in addition to a few table games, slot machines.  We boarded the boat at 6:45pm, and waited for the 7pm departure.  My husband asked the bartender what time we were to return to port so we could pace ourselves over the night.  Turns out the boat doesn’t return until 1am, MUCH longer than either one of us cared to be on the boat (thank God for penny slots), but we were with friends and figured we’d make the most of it.  Our first impression of the boat was that is smelled a bit like a bowling alley, thankfuly the upper deck provides some fresh air and the live entertainment was decent.  After a while, we headed for food, and the wait was painfully slow.  I had hoped to land a few crackers from the bar while we waited, but they were all out.  We had both eaten before we left but 6.5 hours on a boat would make anyone hungry.  My burger finally arrived with a side of cole slaw looking like something out of a high school cafeteria.  My husband ordered the wings, and after one gelatinous bite, threw the entire order in the trash.  As for drinks, they offer a full bar, though only Bud and Bud Light for beer.  If you’re actively gambling, they will provide your drinks for free, but the waitresses don’t make the rounds as they should, and I certainly wasn’t about to pay for a drink while I was consistently pumping money into their machines.  By the end of this long night, there wasn’t a corner of the boat that didn’t have someone sleeping in it, and we also witnessed a fight between passengers that nearly kncocked me off my chair.  Needless to say, we won’t be boarding that boat again anytime soon.
