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

The Bridge Lounge will then move to the Library on Serenity and The Lounge (location of the previous casino) on Symphony.

“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,” said Cristina Levis, CEO of A&K Travel Group.
