Does the casino remain open on the Sensation when it is in port in the Bahamas?

Casinos are always closed when in port.

I haven't been on a cruise that stayed overnight to Nassau recently. On previous cruises Carnival has opened the Casino while docked at Nassau.

The Sensation's registry is in the Bahamas. I thought that might allow the casino to be open.

I learn something new around here all the time.

I also thought the casino would be closed, but I just looked at some Capers for Carnival ships which overnight in Nassau. They show the casino opening at night. I don't know how current it is since these Capers were from a couple years ago.

Carnival isn't the only line with ships registered in The Bahamas, so I doubt that is a factor.

Well... it seems we have conflicting answers between the cruise fanatic and everyone else... I wonder if Carnival could answer the question?
Thanks, Steve

You will probably get a "no", but if you call a second time will quite possibly get a "yes". It is best to call at least 5 times and the answer that gets to three first wins.

Not trying to be a wise guy, that is how it often works when you call a cruise line.

It's possible since the ship is in port overnight that they get special permission to open. I would see it as a concession by the Bahama's. The ship stays overnight bringing potential business to the Bahamas, but the ship doesn't want to lose all their potential business onboard either.

Here is an image of the Carnival Capers for a January 2007 overnight in Nassau. Note it shows the casino open from 7pm to 3am.
