Cruise Ship Casinos – What to Expect

The previous post was part of a series called the Monday Link.  Each Monday we tried to bring someone else’s expertise to our readers on many different topics.  These particular posts deal with questions I had after taking a cruise – mainly the ship’s gambling and casino. These articles investigate the do’s and don’ts, the basics, and the FAQ about those Cruise Ship Casinos.


In the last 34 years, I have had the pleasure of taking four cruises.  Recently, our 4th was on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas in the Bahamas.  Each cruise ship we traveled on had a casino, but size, table game offerings, and slots differed drastically.

So, does a casino matter to you on a cruise – probably, since you’re reading about it here at! But where do you start in cruise line comparisons?  There are quite a few companies to compare, and then each had anywhere from four to twenty-four ships.
