Bermuda allows cruise ship casinos to open in port

| 05/10/2013

(CNS Business): Bermuda’s House of Assembly passed the Cruise Ship (Casino) Act 2013 Thursday, allowing visiting cruise ships to keep their casinos open between 9pm and 5am when in port. Tourism Minister Shawn Crockwell said the concession would ensure Bermuda remained competitive as a cruise destination, according to the Royal Gazette. He said the move would economically benefit the cruise companies from an increase in their on-board revenue, and Bermuda, which would collect licence fees. Casinos activities are limited to cruise passengers. No local residents or visitors to the ship will be allowed to participate, and cruise ships would have to be in port for one night or more to qualify for permission.
