Celebrity Cruises

Casinos at Sea

The experience of cruising is unlike any other type of vacation. Just imagine what it feels like to turn 360 degrees and see nothing but mesmerizing ocean and majestic scenery. Or to rise to the wonders of a new destination each morning as your every need is catered to. These are moments that can only be experienced on a cruise.

Celebrity Cruise’s casinos offer blackjack, American roulette, Caribbean stud poker, craps and a wide range of video and reel slot machines. In addition, blackjack and slots tournaments are held on each voyage. While onboard, check your Celebrity Today daily program or your stateroom television for details.

Dining

Let Celebrity tantalize your palate with our award-winning cuisine. Prepared by world-renowned chefs, our culinary delights are made from scratch using only the finest, fresh ingredients.

From casual eateries like the AquaSpa Café serving light, healthy fare to specialty restaurants where meals are prepared tableside, there are choices sure to please those with even the most discerning tastes.

Enjoy indoor dining in our smoke-free environments or outdoor dining poolside. Aboard Celebrity, the choice is yours.

Proper Dining Attire
A delightful break from the ordinary, dining aboard Celebrity is a true taste of luxury. Whether dining at an intimate table for two or an elaborate table for many, appropriate attire is part of the overall ambience.

Evening Dress Codes
Celebrity’s evening dress codes include three types: formal, casual and informal. The daily program, delivered to your stateroom and available at the Guest Relations Desk, will be your guide to the appropriate evening attire.

Formal Night Attire
Ladies: Evening gown or fancy dress
Gentlemen: Tuxedo, dinner jacket or dark suit

Informal Night Attire
Ladies: Informal dress or pants and blouse
Gentlemen: Jacket and tie with slacks

Casual Night Attire
Ladies: Pantsuit or sporty outfit

Dining in jeans detracts from the overall ambience and is therefore not allowed in the main dining room after 6:00pm. Evening dress codes apply to main restaurant dining. Specialty restaurant dining*, requires a jacket for gentlemen and a dress or pants and a blouse for ladies every night.

ICCL Gambling Guidelines

The International Council of Cruise Lines (ICCL) is a nonprofit trade association consisting of the 17 largest passenger cruise lines that call on major ports in the United States and abroad. The ICCL is dedicated to helping the cruise industry provide a safe, secure, fun and entertaining ship environment for its passengers. Among the services that illustrate the commitment to fun entertainment are the gambling casinos found on most of the ICCL member vessels. These industry guidelines address the equipment, conduct of games, internal controls and customer service for casinos on cruise ships.

The guidelines generally foster the following goals: 

  • To provide reasonable rules by which all gambling onboard member vessels is conducted to ensure fair and professional gaming to the highest level of integrity to the player.
  • To provide internal controls upon which passengers can rely to assure them that the gambling is operated with the utmost integrity.
  • To provide a form of entertainment for passengers that is responsive to the customers’ requests.

Rules of Play
Each line will provide a gaming guide setting forth the rules of play for its casino. These rules of play shall generally follow those established for casinos in Nevada, New Jersey or England. These house rules will also be made available in every casino. Each member line will post at every gaming table minimum and maximum betting limits for each game. Only adults are allowed to play the slots or the tables.

Internal Controls
All shipboard gambling operations will be inspected by each member line’s internal audit department on a regular basis, not to exceed l2 months.

All casinos will have detailed internal control procedures concerning the cash and coin counts, casino cage procedures and other processes, similar to licensed jurisdictions.

Each line will employ some form of surveillance to ensure operations are fair and equitable for all parties.

Each line will separate the operation of the casino from the financial aspects of the casino as clearly as possible, including specific duties for cashiers and table gaming staff.

Customer Service
The onboard casino operations will be the overall responsibility of the hotel manager or director, who is charged with ensuring the highest standard of conduct for casino staff. In case of a gaming dispute, any passenger who feels he or she has an issue that cannot be resolved by the casino manager should bring it up to the hotel manager, and every effort will be made to resolve the problem. If the issue is not resolved onboard the vessel, each ship will have at the casino cage a current list of contact information for its home office or casino operator where the passenger can pursue his or her dispute.

The cruise vessel will have onboard comment cards for the inclusion of any comment, concern or means to improve the gambling system onboard the vessel.

Gambling is strictly for the enjoyment of the passengers who choose to avail themselves of this form of entertainment.
