Does anyone know...are casinos on Alaska cruises open?

Recommended Posts

Since they are not on Princes Hawaii cruises (US waters), was wondering if the same hold true for Alaska since it is also US waters. Took an Princes Alaska cruise a few years back and do not remember the casinos being closed.

Anyone know???

It does seem strange doesn't it. Closed for Hawaiian waters but Alaska it is open during sea days. Weird.

When you say closed for Hawaiian waters, do you mean including the 15 day roundtrip LA-LA Hawaii cruise? I always thought the rule was that legally you had to have an all-American crew, and couldn't not use the casinos if you did not have a non-US port on the itinerary (i.e., Victoria or Vancouver for Alaska, or Ensenada on the 15 day Hawaii route)...which is how they get around that rule.

It's true that the casino is closed while the ship is in Hawaiian waters - -apparently Hawaii considers all the area between the islands as part of the State of Hawaii. The casino is open as usual during the sail out to Hawaii and also on the way back to the mainland.

 

I'm glad to hear that the casino is open during Alaskan cruises, as I expect to be cruising there next summer. Perhaps, on the Alaska sailings, more time is spent in international waters?
