Cruise Quarters - A novel About Casinos and Cruise Ships is a fun, fast paced tale of working in the casino aboard a Regal Cruises cruise-ship. I know because I am the author.
The crew of the Regal Star resemble a mini United Nations, hiring people from all over the world. But unlike the UN, Regal Cruise's employees present a united front above decks as they attend to their passenger's every need. Below decks though, that is a different story.
Sarah Seldon is a croupier on the luxury liner. After many unhappy endings, and burnt out on shipboard romance, she is determined to forget about men and concentrate on becoming a casino manager. On land women face a dearth of GOOD men but on a ship giving up men would take willpower. The mostly male crew exist to serve her every need. The waiters bring her food, the Filipino steward cleans her room, the Italian chefs cook for her and the Welsh plumber fixes her sink. She leads a cushy life, sleeping 'til noon, eating gourmet food, and the topper - she gets to wake up in beautiful new place everyday. All because she works in a casino, a place so bad it has SIN in the middle.
After college she took a summer job at Lake Tahoe in the casino business and became a member of the Church of Gambling. She has been in the gambling business long enough to know that in order for a gambler to be successful, they must have Lady Luck on their side. But a gambler also has to follow the rules of basic strategy. When love unexpectedly sneaks up on Sarah on the magical island of Mayreau, she wonders whether she could apply the rules of gambling to love? What if she could write Sarah Seldon's Basic Strategy of Love?
Book a cruise and travel with Sarah and the crew as they work, play, feast, and fall in and out of love, all while the ship sails around the globe, stopping at exotic ports of call. Along the way, sight-see in Venice, shop in St. Martin, and take an eco-cruise down the Amazon. Let the crew tell you their own stories as they sit in the hallway in the wee hours of the morning. While the ship travels to new destinations, tired and tipsy they share tales of love and betrayal. Find it at here: Cruise Quarters - A Novel About Casinos and Cruise Ships

On a summer break from my teaching job I took a summer job in Lake Tahoe and didn't leave for many years. Raymond was studying at City University in London when he saw an advert 'Train up To Be a Dealer, see the world'. He took that advice and worked as an inspector in casinos all over Europe, from Moscow to Greece. We met while working on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. Raymond jumped ship to be with me and we married after a whirlwind romance. Our knowledge offers a rare insiders look at casino operations.
We also walked 500 miles across Spain, Our movie of the trip, Camino De Santiago - A Walker's Guide, is a popular guide to the Camino. You can find us at www.caminovideo.com or on Amazon. Read our novel and let us know what you think.
Thanks,
