From the people who brought you attitude-laden casinos including Genesis, SpinIt, Casino Gods and Casino Joy comes Casino Cruise.
And, just as the above casinos don’t disappoint when it comes to bringing you a site that does things a little bit (ok, a lot) differently, Casino Cruise is no exception: welcome aboard the Casino Cruise – complete with ‘an attentive crew, famous for their hospitality’ (in the words of the casino themselves), you’ll enjoy a home away from home as you sail the high casino seas. You’re in for a great time, no matter where you end up docking your anchor.
Getting setup and playing at Cruise Casino takes only 30 seconds of your time, and just a few clicks! Here’s what you need to do:
Step 2:You'll be taken to a form, asking you for -
a. A username
b. Your email address
c. A password (this needs to be a least 8 characters, with both numbers and letters)
Step 3:On the next screen, you'll be asked for some personal details:
a. Your first and last names
b. If you're male or female
c. Your birth date
d. Your country - this will be pre-selected for you, based on where you're accessing the site from
e. Your address - start typing to see it autocomplete, then select the correct address
f. Your player currency (this will also be pre-selected for you, based on your location)
g. Your mobile number
h. You'll also be asked to tick the box saying you're happy to receive marketing communications from the casino. We really recommend you do tick this box, or you'll definitely miss out on goodies from the casino!
Step 4:You're successfully registered! Now to make your first deposit…choose your preferred deposit method, and if you want to claim the welcome bonus (see more about these two offers in the ‘Welcome Bonus’ section, below), remember to select the ‘I want a bonus’ option (highlighted in red on the screenshot):
Step 5:Continue with your deposit process until you see the confirmation screen - you’re now ready to get started playing at Casino Cruise, and your bonus (if you've taken one) will be automatically applied to your account.
For more about bonus and wagering requirements, as well as details of how to withdraw, see sections below.
Casino Cruise made quite the splash with us by offering a choice of two welcome bonuses!
Now, before you get over overexcited, you should know that it’s either one or the other…not both (although that would also be lovely): you have the choice of taking either a casino bonus, with up to $1000 and 200 free spins, or a Live Casino welcome bonus with 100% up to $100.
To claim the welcome bonus, you need to:
Step 1:Register for a new player account at Casino Cruise
Step 2:Choose the ‘I want a bonus’ box, and the bonus itself, at the cashier (see the ‘How to get started’ section, above, for details of where this is)
Step 3:Make a deposit of at least $10
Step 4:Start playing! Your deposit bonus will be automatically applied.
Think it’s clear cut? It is! But, whether you’re a Live Gaming fan, or just want as much bonus cash as possible, there are a few Terms and Conditions you should know about when claiming Casino Cruise’s Welcome Bonus:
For the Casino Welcome Bonus –
For the Live Casino bonus:
All in all, while we absolutely love that there’s a choice of welcome bonuses on offer here, we think we’d prefer the casino welcome bonus. Not only does it give us a little extra across our first four deposits, but it’s also way easier to satisfy the wagering requirements (most slots contribute 100%), and we also get 200 free spins on Fire Joker chucked in for good measure.

Ships ahoy indeed! Casino Cruise looks very shipshape, and rather pleasing on the eye!
We especially love that there are suggested popular games here, as we have some very nice-looking, well-laid out game lobbies!
Otherwise, Casino Cruise have these game categories to choose from:
We really love the masses of variety here – it’s really a case of, no matter your gaming preference, you’ll find more than enough to keep you satisfied. That’s not something we can say about just any old online casino, where most of the games are found in the slots section, and there’s slim pickings for fans of any other type of gaming.
Still, if you’re looking for some guidance on where to get started, then check out the Popular Games tab. At the time of writing, the top slots at Casino Cruise were – :

The casino doesn’t actually publish their payout rates – and neither do they have to as a UKGC-regulated casino, all Casino Cruise needs to do to satisfy their regulators’ stipulations is to get their games routinely tested for fairness.
While other casinos don’t even bother to mention who does this testing for them, Casino Cruise mentions they use eCOGRA and Technical Systems Testing (TST) (both of whom are eye highly respected independent auditors), to ensure that the games’ RNG works properly and fairly.
It’s also really easy to work out the casino’s overall payout rate: since each game published its own payout rate (the RTP – Return To Player), all you need to do is navigate to the game’s information/help/’?’ section, scroll all the way to the bottom and find the RTP of the game –
…and then average these across all the games on the site. Doing this gave us an overall payout rate for Casino Cruise of around 96.5%, which shows it’s both a very generous and very fair casino to play at!

Casino Cruise has a range of deposit and withdrawal options for CA players, from ewallets, to debit cards and beyond!
Casino Cruise is highly committed to making sure their players are safe and secure online. Not only is it regulated by two of the strictest and most respected industry-wide regulators, the United Kingdom Gambling Commission, and the Malta Gaming Authority , but the site really, genuinely cares for its players.
There are a whole range of responsible gambling and support organisations linked in the footer for players needing support and resources in case of developing problematic gambling behaviours. These organizations include GamStop, BeGambleAware.org, parent company Genesis Globals’ own Genesis SafePlay site, as well as the casino’s own in-depth Responsible Gambling policy.
Otherwise, the site is enforced and protected by SSL encryption, keeping all of your player entails and financial data completely safe, secure and unhackable.
Casino Cruise also supports players from going over the edge, providing players with an easy way to set their own deposit limits for daily, weekly and monthly budget considerations, as well as to take a break or self-exclude – all available to do from a player’s account.
The casino has a fantastic mobile site, which is exactly what we expected.
While there are no dedicated iOS or Android apps to speak off (and actually, you don’t really need them – that’s a really old-skool way of doing casino – this is the new age, son!) the mobile site is a fantastic place for fans of mobile gaming or anyone who just appreciates a work of art when they see it.
The site loads beautifully, looks exactly like the desktop site (just with the deposit/cashier button at the bottom of the screen. Not the top), and has everything you can find on the desktop site (yes, all the games are here).
The tiles for each game are really well-sized too, meaning we could easily select any game we wanted to, with no accidental selections, as well as easily swipe and scroll to our heart’s content.
The site handles every operating system and device that we tested it with nicely too – from iOS, to Android and Windows, across phones and tablets too. That’s a solid one, in our books, for Casino Cruise.
There’s a really nice-looking comp point scheme, and it’s very simple: play and earn points, which you then convert to cash.
Every real money wager earns you points –
That’s a little high for fans of table games and live dealer games, but if you’re a slots fan, then you should wrack up those points in no time at all!
Once you get 1000 points, you can easily convert these, right from your player account. 100 points = $1! Simple, right?
You can convert every 100 points you receive, once you reach over 1000. Any unredeemed points you have will be removed after 3 months of inactivity on your player account.
We really like how straightforward this loyalty scheme is – at some online casinos, there’s a whole range of tiers you need to rise through, and it causes players to scramble toward the end of the month to get playing, just so they can keep their loyalty tier status for another month. We much prefer this way, as it also promotes a safer rate of play.
What would a cruise be without its VIP guests?
There’s a really rewarding-looking VIP club on offer here, which is invite-only.
There are several tiers –
We like that there’s a lot on offer here, and especially that both ‘regular’ players and VIP players can be treated to something a little bit extra, and be made to feel respected by the casino!
Casino Cruise has an excellent set of customer support options.
Firstly, their FAQ is fantastic – it’s indexed by section, with actual FAQs that were on our mind, and in-depth answers. Even better – it’s completely searchable.
Secondly, the contact options are clearly displayed…not just hidden behind an FAQ wall, with contact details only accessible once you’ve run your way through any and every possible (wrong) answer. A phone number, email address and live chat are easily found right above the FAQ section widget.
The live chat is our favourite though – we connected to Clarissa in literally what felt like a split second. She was friendly, polite and sorted our issue out within a matter of minutes.
The support is available 24/7 too – a fact we like very much!
We loved our time with Casino Cruise.
From the masses of games, the well thought-out site and the range of deposit options, we were really on a nice cruising holiday.
We’d say that the minimum withdrawal fee is a little cheeky, but even then, if that’s our only issue, we’re still pretty happy.
We think everyone and anyone should check out a nice casino holiday with Casino Cruise – you’re in for a real treat!
