If you take a cruise which is docked in a port for two days...does the casino stay open? I know that it closes when we get into a port but for 2 days?

My husband and I really like the casinos and the kids love the excursions so I would like to have both. Have skipped over certain cruises, even when the prices have been great, because of the 2-day docking.

Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry my cruise clock is not working.

Planning Europe cruise now...so any suggestions for that would also be helpful.

It local law says the casino on the ship has to be closed when in port, then it will be closed no matter how long you are there.

You are not using the correct countdown clock code. You have to use BB Code, as this is the only one which works. It appears you selected html code for your tickers and that doesn't work here.

Thanks...that is what I thought.

Any suggestions on Europe? Looking at a long cruise 12 - 14 days and of course on RCL.

I am trying to recall if we have ever seen the casino open while in any port. After more than 50 cruises and about 2 years of cruising I do not recall anywhere that the Casinos have been open while docked or anchored. Its generally required that ships have to be in international waters to open their casinos, and we have been on many cruises where they did not open until they were 12 miles out (some countries insist on a 12 mile limit).

I've never been on a ship with the casino was open while in port...One reason I'm sure is that many of the ports have their own casinos and don't want the competition.....Besides, give your arm a rest from the slots and enjoy the port...then come back refreshed and ready to pull some more...Happy Crusing....
