The cruise line said that they are bringing back casinos after receiving feedback from their most loyal guests who want a gaming experience on board.

The new 1,000+ square foot Casino de Monte-Carlo will be added where the current Bridge Lounges are located on both Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony.

The Bridge Lounge will then move to the Library on Crystal Serenity and The Lounge on Crystal Symphony. The Lounge is where the casino was previously located on Crystal Symphony.

The new casino will be located where the Bridge Lounge is on Deck 6 on Crystal Symphony

The casino will also be featured on the cruise line’s new ocean ships that are on order.  However, they will not be on Crystal’s expedition ships.

Casino de Monte-Carlo on Crystal ships will feature slots and table games that include blackjack, roulette and more.

The new casino will open on Crystal Symphony during the November 14, 2024 sailing and on Crystal Serenity the following month.

This new alliance will allow the two companies to use their expertise and innovation to create a unique casino experience.

Cristina Levis, CEO of A&K Travel Group, gave the following statement:

“We have listened attentively to the feedback from our loyal guests regarding their desire to have casinos back onboard, and we are proud to announce that we will deliver on our promise.

At Crystal, like at Monte-Carlo SBM, guest satisfaction and enjoyment are paramount, and this alliance with Casino de Monte-Carlo underscores our dedication to fulfilling their wishes and exceeding their expectations. We are confident the reintroduction of casinos will further enhance the overall cruise experience, providing our guests with the entertainment options they crave while sailing with us.”
