Passengers can choose from a sit-down lunch, dinner or station brunch, depending on the departure date.

Qualify for membership rates

Lindsay Greene, Jonathan's daughter, revealed that passengers will pay non-member prices. However, gamblers can be eligible for membership rates after they reached a certain ranking with the casino. Black Diamond also plans to operate pick-up services, Lindsay added.

Gambling, dining and entertainment

Black Diamond's gambling ship comprises one gaming area and a dining level. The gambling area features slot machines, roulette, craps, poker and blackjack. Both decks also have a bar, while the dining area offers entertainment. Black Diamond revealed that the ship has room for 550 cruisers. Jonathan Greene purchased the cruise ship two years ago.
