ChipGuide - A Catalog of Casino Chips and Collectibles
From the LA Times, dated 9/8/1981 ... white-red-and-blue-trimmed, 478-foot, seven-deck, Bahamas-flagged Pacific Star--the West Coast's only one-day cruise ship. The boat sailed from San Diego's Cruise Ship Terminal on a 13-hour cruise that would take us to Ensenada for 2 1/2 hours of touring and shopping, then back to San Diego at 10:30 that night. Newspaper ads for the "one day, fun day cruise," offered weekdays and weekends by San Diego-based Starlite Cruises, promised "three fabulous buffet meals," full casino action, sun deck, hot tubs, sports bar, Vegas-style shows, live music and duty-free shopping on board. The Diamond Lil's Casino had 150 slot machines, the video poker machines, craps table, roulette wheel, six blackjack tables and two Caribbean-style stud poker tables. Table bets ranged from $3 minimum to $500 maximum, and was opened in international waters--about 45 minutes after leaving San Diego--to about 45 minutes before docking.
