My wife and I have been sailing on the Big M since it came to town back in the 1990's. It is not a behomoth of a gaming vessel. In fact it is titled as a boat--it is not a ship in the likeness of a let's say Queen Mary, but it is a fantastic way to spend a few... More

If you want a fun evening Big M is great. Even if you are not a gambler, the ride and view are outstanding.

I did the casino cruise from Myrtle Beach South Carolina. If you aren't going to be gambling all night you don't want to go on this cruise. You are stuck on this cruise for 5 1/2 hours with nothing to do all night. The food on the cruise was not good either.

Even if you are not a gambler the boat trip along Ft Myers Beach and then out to sea is a treat especially as the dolphins swim along the side of the boat. There are shaded and non shaded seating areas. Check the website as the boat goes out during the day and night. Plenty of tables and chairs to... More

My wife and I just got back from the Labor Day cruise... That was a great day. We had talked about going on the boat, finally went today. We have been on quite a few cruises up to the biggest. I have to say this is a class operation. Ship was clean, bathrooms were spotless. If those are dirty, not... More

Casino has old-fashioned quarter slot machines, with traditional buckets to carry the winnings; something that is hardly ever seen anymore, and which is so much more fun than the new electronic-ticket digital hocus-pocus at most other casinos. The slots were loose, and we saw several jackpot winners...ourselves included! That being said, there certainly were negatives. The "Buffet" was absolutely atrocious,... More

Fun times at the beginning. Everyone was on the upper deck with drink in hand and the DJ playing tropical tunes. Nice cruise out to the gambling limit with great weather. Soon, it was down to the very nice buffet. Plenty to eat, prime rib, ma-hi, chicken, dessert, etc. As soon as we reached the limit, the machines and tables... More

I love the water and enjoyed the sea, sun and the relaxation that followed. My better half and two freinds made a bee line to the slots and won a little money. The food is cafiteria style and will fill your hunger but that's all. The 10am trip can provide breakfact but the best trip in my mind is the... More

Took the day excursion on the Big M on May 29th.Only 10 bucks for the ride!!! Nice smooth boat ride and nice to sit on the upper deck for some sunning while we got to international waters. Had the lunch buffet before gambling. It was okay, nothing to brag about but filled up. Gambling was mostly good. There were more... More
