Cruise Ships May Operate Casinos in Bermuda
(9:47 a.m. EDT) -- Cruise ships visiting Bermuda can now keep their casinos open at night while in port, Bermudian members of parliament decided yesterday.

The Cruise Ship (Casino) Act 2013 permits onboard casinos to operate between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., the Royal Gazette reported. According to Tourism Minister Shawn Crockwell, the move ensures Bermuda remains a competitive cruise destination.

Cruise ships will need to remain in port for one full night or longer in order to qualify for permission to operate their casinos. Additionally, cruise lines will need to pay a casino licensing fee.
