Located on the Atlantic coast, Miami is a city by the beach, a place for people to let loose, to show off their bodies and to bathe in the scorching Florida sunshine as they sprawl on the golden beaches. Home to great museums, zoos and other attractions, Miami is a beautiful city filled with beautiful people, and there is plenty to see, do and experience here. It doesn’t matter whether you’re into sightseeing, sports, racing, art, shooting, theatre or cinema, Miami is a culturally rich and exciting place to be, and one that enjoys year round sunshine and picture-perfect sights.
Some of the best ways to experience the thrill of this city, and one of the most popular experiences with both tourists and locals, is a casino cruise. The best way to enjoy the gambling lifestyle in Miami is not to visit a stuffy and enclosed casino, but to join one of the casino cruises that allow you to see the city from its best side whilst you enjoy playing slot machines, poker, blackjack, roulette and more.
Casino cruises are huge here as everyone wants to take advantage of the beautiful views, fine weather and lush waters. Sailing away from shore on an evening or night-time, with the city of Miami striking a brightly lit pose against the horizon, and the excitement and buzz of slot machines and poker tables all around you, is an unforgettable experience. There are also bars and restaurants onboard most of these ships, so you can enjoy a relaxing drink or some fine dining between (or instead of) your gambling activities.
The Carnival Cruise Line are one of the biggest names in the Miami gambling industry. They have a number of cruising casino ships that depart from Miami. Some of the most popular of these are the Celebration and Conquest, which have nearly 450 slot games between them, not to mention a host of card tables and other casino games. The Destiny ship is one of the biggest of the franchise with a huge 305 slot games available onboard. The Destiny, along with the other Carnival Cruise Line ships, leaves from 3655 Northwest 87th Avenue in Miami. These casino cruises are the prime destination for anyone looking to experience the serenity and excitement of gambling on the water. The cruise ships include: Celebration, Conquest, Ecstasy, Elation, Fantasy, Fascination, Glory, Holiday, Imagination, Inspiration, Jubilee, Legend, Miracle, Paradise, Pride, Sensation, Spirit, Triumph and Victory — all of which offer a different amount of slot machines and table games.
Carnival Cruise Line are not the only cruise line that have tried to establish a monopoly in this field, Celebrity Cruises also run a number of cruises out of the Miami area. These cruises depart from Caribbean Way and are just as popular as the Carnival Cruise Line ships. There are plenty of table games and slot machines to enjoy as you skim the seas outside of this great city. One of the most popular Celebrity Cruise ships is Mercury. This ship is filled with men and women of all ages crowding around American roulette and crap tables, drinking cocktails and generally having a great time. There are ten table games in total onboard the Mercury and nearly 200 slot machines, including a wide assortment of video poker games. The Infinity and Galaxy ships are also very popular with gamblers and includes a handful of extra table games and slot machines.
If you’re looking for something a little different, then the Casino Princesa also departs from Miami. This huge casino is over 10.000 square foot in size, bigger than many land based casinos, and there are nearly 250 slot machines, 32 table games and two poker tables to experience. The Casino Princesa is located near the Hard Rock Cafe in Bayside and the voyages often last around 4 and a half hours, going as far as three miles offshore. The most popular games onboard are craps and blackjack and the voyages are very popular with tourists and locals alike. The yacht is broken up into two floors and there is more than one bar available, so if you tire of gambling you can always enjoy a relaxing drink as you stare at the city shore.
Casino cruises aren’t just aimed at hardline gamblers and poker players. They can be enjoyed by everyone, male or female, young or old. You won’t be disappointed with the food or drink onboard these ships and the views are simply spectacular, the perfect way to experience Miami. So, after you’ve sunned yourself on the beach, walked up and down the many shopping streets, visited the zoo, enjoyed watching a game of baseball, basketball or football, and have refreshed yourself at the Seaquariam, you can end your day with a relaxing and fun-filled cruise.
