Second casino boat returns to Little RiverCarolinaLive.com, Tuesday, April 27, 2010 at 11:58:14 AM
A new gambling boat docked in Little River this past week, and there are employment opportunities.
When the old Sun Cruz Casino boat set sail at the end of last year after bankruptcy, the company promised a new boat would replace it.
That has created around 160 job positions and the company says it's still hiring for some of those. It's partnered with the Coastal Workforce Center in Conway....read the rest

“Talk about disapointed! Had been doing the BIG M and decided to give Aquacino a try. Big mistake! Free drinks while gaming was a joke. I was only asked 1 time if I wanted a drink. I was at the same machine for over 2 hours.Asked for a blody Mary and was told they were out. This was the morning cruise.Don't they restock? The machines were so tight Both my friend and I didn't even come close to a small payout. I found the place was not well taken care of.Dirty ashtrays,water not working in restrooms,trash was everywhere, tables were dirty! We came home and threw away our player's cards. Will not go back!”

“oh!! Where do I start? First of all I should have reacted on first impressions. The office was run down and the outside appearance of the boat was complete opposite of the brochure and website. We were served the "buffet" as soon as boarding the ship. This food was a joke. It was horrible and the employees serving food was dirty looking. I went back to get something else thinking i might like other options more but was denied said one plate only. I paid for a buffet so unless the meaning changed it should have been all you can eat. Nevertheless no big deal considering the quality. Then we went to top deck to wait until we reached gaming area. Within thirty minutes of eating i felt sick, i went down stairs to restroom and lets just say i never moved out of a chair outside of restrooms. The boat rocked and swayed so bad that there was people getting sick everywhere. I know of at least twenty people who didnt play the entire time for being so sick. It was hot and stuffy to top it all. This was a complete waste of money and you couldnt pay me to get back on that boat. Then I come home from vacation to find out my credit card was overcharged. Im fuming mad and so dissapointed I wasted a day of my vacation.”

“sailed on boat to give it a try----i really appreciated the elevator-----i cant sail on the big m because they do not have any handicap services-----the staff was much friendlier than the big m-----even the slot play was like veegas while the big m makes you carry around dirty buckets of coin---the boat was much larger and i have decided that this is a much better value for my hard earned money”

“what a terrible trip on this "new" boat! Many machines not working and what was working was all bad! For a "new" boat - it was not a good time and the food was horrible. Talk about getting sick from food - that is an understatement. Nothing for someone with diabetes and nothing worth while!! Better food at a gas station.... Nothing really set up for a casino boat and nothing worth going back on. Waste of time and money - for sure!!”

“Went out on 5/30 and was more than disappointed with the service or lack of service. So many machines not working and one machine I played gave $$ back on 3 different settings, but there were only 2 settings - lost out on that BIG time.. Another machine jumped the amouont you were playing and when I asked for help, I was accused of lying to them - supervisor came over and checked history of machine - NOT my fault - machine did what it wanted to do - should I ask if these machines are rigged?? Air was barely running - sweaty, uncomfortable and more than sloshy trip. Had to wait for a group of people to arrive - almost half hour late getting out and no time was alotted for this - shorted this trip almost half an hour - Not a good start and definately not a good ending. Food was horrible - Turkey was a deli turkey - one that is made for slicing, not for hand carving into thick nasty tasting food - very little selection and the chicken and dumplings - canned and nasty tasting - better quality from Family Dollar!! Walking down the stairs to get near the exits when time to leave - 2 boys who worked for the boat - running down and almost knocked over other people, not even "excuse me" just flying down the stairs, shows a person how well they are trained to take care of their customers - NOT!!! Never going back and will keep writing "not nice" reviews. On a 1 -10 they get a -50! SunCuise - please come back.....”

“YES ITS BIG AND NICE, BUT THE FOOD IS THE SAME AS THE SUN CRUZ (NOT GOOD) I HOPE THEY WILL OFFER INCENTIVES TO GET PLAYERS FROM BIG M ! SAME OWNERS I DONT EXPECT THEM TO MAKE IT ! THEY NEED TO COMP HOTELS AND FOOD LIKE SUN CRUZ DID BACK BEFORE SUN CRUZ GOT TIGHT WITH THERE MONEY THEN WENT BANKRUPT ! THEY GOT GREEDY THEN QUIT COMPS THEN POCKETED THE PROFITS AND FILLED CHAPTER 13 THEN RETURNED WITH A NEW BOAT THE AQUASINO WITH THE SAME OWNERS LOOKS LIKE TAX EVASION TOO ME ! ”

“I used to sail with Suncruz until it closed down its operations and I switched to Big M. A lot of customers like myself are settled with Big M and receive match play comps from the Big M. I hope with your arrival, your management would honor Big M's match play coupons. Definitely this will provide a great incentive for the Big M players to switch to Aquasio or at least try it. ”
