The Genting Group, the resorts, gaming and cruise line company, the founder of Star Cruises, and half owner of Norwegian Cruise Line, partnered with RAV Bahamas, the developers of The Resorts World Bimini Bay and Rockwell Island, to bring Miami a new gambling destination. The Resorts World casino is South Florida’s closest offshore casino, and the Bimini SuperFast is a floating casino and party boat sure to dazzle Miami’s gambling enthusiasts. Many people in South Florida are familiar with Bimini, yet very few have actually visited due to a lack of convenient transportation options.
Bimini SuperFast, is a 32,000 ton ship, with speeds up to 30 knots, and the fastest cruise ship in the Americas, capable of comfortably crossing the powerful Gulfstream separating Florida and The Bimini Islands in just over two hours with up to 1,600 people onboard. Bimini SuperFast features six restaurants and bars, large party deck, and superb service from an international crew.
The 10-hour “Day Explorer Cruise” aboard Bimini SuperFast departs Miami at 9am and returns at 7pm daily, allowing guests to explore Bimini during the day. The “All-Night Party Cruise” is so convenient; you can easily arrive after work, boarding starts at 8pm and leaves port at 10pm, then party all night on the high seas with live entertainment, DJs, dancing, dining and gaming, and be back 5am the following morning without skipping a beat.
The ship and the Resorts World Casino in Bimini offer slots, craps, roulette, blackjack and other table games, but there is no poker. The ship’s sports book is open, and is working on a system that will legally allow patrons to cash tickets by mail. Blackjack often has a $10 minimum on the ship, $15 on the island, and pays 3-to-2 for a blackjack. The minimum age for gambling and drinking is 18.
The party begins the minute you board the ship for your unforgettable party voyage with delicious dinner to start the night right and breakfast to re-energize while you take in the stunning Miami sunrise. Each night features different local DJs, but on Saturdays, the stage belongs to the Miami Heat’s DJ Irie accompanied by Zhantra Entertainment dancers wearing blue LED costumes.
Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Chairman & Chief Executive of The Genting Group, a Malaysian conglomerate, celebrate his birthday on Thursday, August 15th at the All-Night Party Cruise, with free champagne and birthday cake for all passengers.
