cruise included ham, roast beef and shrimp.
The casino opens once
the Palm Beach Princess is 3 miles away
from shore. The ship will steam quickly out of port,
through the Palm Beach Inlet and out to sea. Once at sea, the
ship will stop and float east
of Palm Beach for about 4 hours.
The casino is dark when
you board and when the ship is less than
3 miles from land.
Meals were served early in the cruise. The entertainment
show was offered late in the cruise. We assumed this was done so
meals/entertainment wouldn't conflict with casino operating hours.
The casino opens immediately
after the ship is 3 miles out to
sea. An all ship announcement is made about the casino opening.
The Palm Beach Princess has two
casino decks. The lower
deck is the "non-smoking casino." It features slot machines,
video poker, table games. and a sports bar.
The "smoking casino" is located one deck above. It
features similar gambling opportunities.
This gambling ship allowed members of its preferred customer club to
reserve specific gaming
machines. We noticed machines being reserved at
boarding time. Club members would place their tickets on a machine
and block the coin slot with a

hours that the casino was open. These reserved "favorite"
machines opened up later in the cruise.
We noticed several machines being reserved in less than
"official" ways. This machine was being reserved with a coffee

review style live entertainment program
was offered late in the cruise.

found aboard the Palm Beach Princess. Seating is
limited. Select your seats 30-45 minutes prior to show time to
insure that you'll be able to see the performance.
The show on our cruise was offered as the ship sailed back into
port. It featured two men, two women and a trio of musicians
performing a musical review.
The ship arrives back in port quickly from it floating position
offshore. It's fun to watch
the captain dock the ship from an outside deck. Trams will be waiting
on the dock to shuttle passengers to the
parking lot. Like all cruise lines, the staff will try to get you
off the ship quickly because the boat needs to be cleaned and
for its next sailing.
