A long time ago, as long as you were gambling you were given free drinks, those day are gone forever, unless you are a VIP member, ( one of the incentives for being a member), now as Of July 1st or 3rd, If you are a first timer on the boat, instead of costing 25 dollars it is going to cost you 30 dollars And the Non smoking ship is going to be Smoking optional. , and get this, Here is the change, If you are a VIP member and you want to sail on the weekends it is going to cost you $30.00 as well to get on boat on the weekends,, VIP MEMBERS PAY FULL PRICE 30.00 FOR THE WEEKEND, Weekday it is still 10.00, everyone pays 10.00 for the tax, and the food, even though I get a free buffet, I do not eat on the ship, I gave my buffet ticket to someone who doesn't mind sublime food, I have notice even though it was summer time, there wasn't a whole lot of people on the ship, it was calm seas, nice evening, and the machines were tight, I have been gambling from Vegas , to mountaineer in west Virginia , to the gambling boats, and I can tell you, the machines were tight,

"Disgusting Waitress"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed June 10, 2017
It was a nice evening and some friends and I decided to go out on the boat for a little gambling and a few drinks. A waitress named candice was EXTREMELY ill mannered. I asked her for a drink and she rudely yelled and said "i aint your waitress lady". Mind you, I havent had one drink, was very polite and was playing slots consistently. I will NEVER return because of this woman. I have been on multiple times and never had an issue. Until i was literally yelled at by her. Candice is horrible and i hope that no one gets her as a waitress.

This gave us something to do Sunday morning. Not crowded. Plenty of games to play. 3 levels. 1 level is for sight seeing when you want to take a break; has a bar & snacks, one is for eating and gambling and the lower strictly gambling. Brunch buffet had a lot to choose from and pizza is served afterwards. Will definitely add this to our vacation whenever we return.
