Coast Guard Shuts Down 2 Casino Ships

Wednesday, August 15, 2007
Two casino cruises from Port Canaveral were temporarily shut down by the Coast Guard, reports said. Inspectors said they found 24 violations during a routine check of the Sun Cruz Casino. The problems found involved fire equipment on the ship and the cooling system, WESH 2 News reported. The other ship in trouble is Sterling's Ambassador 2. The Coast Guard ordered it out of U.S. waters because it didn't have the proper paperwork, so all bets are off for gamblers until the problems are fixed. The Coast Guard said it will inspect the boats again when the companies let them know the problems are fixed. source: WESH 2 News
