The ribbon was cut on Friday, April 22, and a new, state-of-the-art Casino opened its doors at the Caravelle Hotel in downtown Christiansted.
With the hotel's intensive, multi-million dollar renovations complete and the debut of the first casino in the town of Christiansted, Caravelle Hotel is bringing visitors back to the town and the island. The hotel was sold out the weekend the casino opened.
"With our award-winning restaurant, our location, and our warm hospitality, the incredible renovations, and now the casino, Caravelle Hotel will attract new visitors to St. Croix." said Sid Kalmans of Caravelle Hotel.
The casino opened with a ribbon cutting and a grand block party featuring music performances by Stanley and the Ten Sleepless Knights, The Express Band, The Dale Powers Band, and Kurt Schindler & the Drunken Dumplins.
