"Casino, Dinner, and a Cruise AWESOME :)"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Late husband and i.was on the Big M on May 18th, played blackjack. I'm pretty new to this game so I had questions and some uncertainties about what I should do. So the dealers had no problem answering them and they was very kind as well. I actually really felt bad for the dealers because some of the people can be rude. hey its our money.. We blow it..its on us. The staff we met along our journey on the Big M was very friendly and professional. We are not smokers, but Ship 1 only goes out on Saturday nights. There was an area where there was no smoking, so that was nice. Like I said in my title the casino was really awesome, I mean you already get a nice relaxing cruise, drinks, great dinner all in 1. I highly recommend the Big M . I didn't want it to end. I'm already to return :)

"Sunday crusie"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 23, 2017 NEW
This was our favorite Sunday afternoon thing to do. Since they have taken possession of all casino boats in Little River, things have changed a lot and not for the better. The breakfast buffet was delicious and reasonable. Now, there is half the selection for double the price. Free drinks while gambling no longer exists, unless you spend more time than the crew on the boat. It use to be a fun, relaxing, somewhat inexpensive way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Not anymore. Each time we go, we see attendance smaller and smaller. Maybe its time for BigM to rethink their strategy

"Rude pit boss at crap table"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed May 20, 2017 NEW
On May 19,2017 I was the only one at the craps table, and the pit boss (Chin) told me, " to pick up the pace on your rolls." I then asked him, "why when there is no one else playing?" Again he said," just pick up the pace." So I then just colored in. I walked away from the table and he said loudly and sarcastically, " thanks for the tip." When I heard that I went back to the table and said to Chin, " I would have left a tip like I always do if he wasn't so rude! " He then mumbled something to me as I left. This is no way to treat a customer! Over my lifetime I have been to many casinos in and outside the U.S. and never been treated like this. Everyone else on the cruise ship # 1 (non smoking) was courteous and polite. I guess they don't want you to win at the craps table. Needless to say I will continue to go to the Cherokee casino in N.C. where they treat you with dignity and respect and not the Big M.

"Ship and Crew were great - management not so much"

The management should have cancelled the trip. The seas were 4-6 feet. The Crew members were shocked that we went out at all - the trip was cut short by 1.5 hours
