When can a cruise ship casino open? First, they are closed while the cruise ship is in ports of call, usually to adhere to local regulations. They are also closed in the mornings while the ship is underway. Most casinos will open late morning (typically around 11 a.m. local time) and stay open throughout the day and well into the next morning’s hours.
