The New Casino Ship Ready To Offer Better Services

The Victory Casino Cruise is the new casino ship that arrived at Mayport this summer but has seen a great year. There have been more than 50000 passengers who have sailed in the ship and the ship has sailed more than 50 times since it came out. The ship has seen very smooth sailing and the turnout was almost at par with a ship same as this in Canaveral.

The CEO of Victory, Lester Bullock said in a statement that they are right on track as they offer one of the best experiences on any casino cruise starting from gaming to dining. The customer is given the overall experience. They do not have the same services as given by the other cruises but they provide even better than those. They have set a high bar as they have high expectations about the turnout and are happy that the passengers are appreciating a product that is superior to the others. Right now, the ship looks forward to serve the community and give the utmost enjoyment.

Ferry Fest became one of the biggest sponsors of Victory in August for a community event in which the Mayport Village and St. Johns River Ferry were celebrated. The ship also works for philanthropic purposes as they serve Children of Fallen Patriots, The Donna Foundation and the Toys for Tots every month.

As per the company statement, the ship has generated more than $2200 for non-profit organizations in the last three months. 22% of the staff on the ship is Ex-military and it has a total of 300 staff members.

The company also said that they are expecting an estimated $12 million as per its direct impact in the area for the first year. They say that they will continue to stand for the place that is nothing but home to them and are also looking forward to a great year filled with prosperity in 2015.
