A cruise experience is not complete without a visit to the in-house casino and this Legend of the Seas cruise is no exception. You will find all kinds of gambling games here – rows of jackpots with different themes, Blackjack, Baccarat, Mini Baccarat, Sic bo, Caribbean Stud Poker, Three Card Poker, Roulette, Texas Hold’em tables. Did not bring enough money onboard? No worries – all transactions are charged to your Seapass Card which doubles as your door card and also linked to your credit card (a procedure carried out during your check-in). Your SeaPass card can be used in the casino for up to US$2000 per guest, per day.
There is so much to do on cruises from spending time eating nice meals, tanning, seeing the best shows, to the most important thing enjoying at the casinos! Just remember though that if you’re not able, or you don’t see yourself going anytime soon to this onboard casino, you can always play these games online anytime.
The experience you can have in an online casino, can be just as good as the experience you’ll on a casino cruise, that is if you do it right. Search for some great online casino reviews and choose the one you like the most. Start with some of the free games available here for practice and place your bets when you are ready. If you’re more into slots games, try your luck with one of these free pokies games.
However if you are new to all this gambling games, you are in luck! Royal Caribbean Cruise Legend of the Seas cater for free gaming lessons for everyone during the first day of the cruise! From these lessons, you will understand how each of these games work and even learn some tips and strategies to better your chances of winning (no guarantee it will work though).
If you are not into gambling, you could also do some onboard shopping. There are various products available for sale e.g. jewelry, cosmetic, bags, souvenirs – all duty free (even the branded ones e.g. Swarovski, Diesel, Guess). Sometimes there are onboard sales e.g. 50% off sale or $10 specials – you could pick up a bargain from these shops! Pay with your SeaPass if you are short on cash. All transactions onboard are in US Dollars. You could also rent tuxedos for formal night (the rates are quite high though). You would also be able to find the north face – the latest ski wear design onboard!
