If you are not a smoker, bring your own oxygen tank. It's unfortunate that they do not offer outdoor slot machines. There is plenty of room on board for better ventilation, but was told that safety & security was priority. Isn't a healthy lung a priority?
Staff were diligent & servers were friendly.

While The Big M Casino has a ventilation system to remove smoke from the main deck casino, those people who are sensitive to second hand smoke have the option of playing any of the very popular slot machines located in the second deck NON-SMOKING area. The second deck is where the dining room and buffet is located. The entire second deck is designated non-smoking.

Food quality mediocre. Terribly long if you are losing, rough water made a bunch of folks sick. 6 hours too long- just did not enjoy.

Such a fun cruise. There is entertainment and drinks on board while you're on your way out to the gambling-line (you can only gamble after a certain amount of distance from shore due to gambling laws). I had a blast and would definitely give them 5 stars next time I go if I win more!

If you enjoy the water, enjoy gambling, and good food, then this is a great way to spend your day. I have never taken their evening cruise, but it does sound like a lot of fun. The food on board is very good with a good selection for such a small ship. Plenty of slots to play and you can hit quite often. Love to spend the day at the Big M!

For a big boat it is terrible on the water. I don't normally get sea sick but I did on it. They also only let you play after they go 20 miles or so out in the water. Then they close everything up and you have the long drive back. It is way too long of a ride for the short time you can play. We had to buy T-shirts there as they won't let you on the boat in sleeveless shirts
