When I landed at the Goa airport the first thing I noticed at the arrival was a big hoarding of Deltin  Royale, Panjim Goa. The hoarding was well placed and could not miss the tourist’s eye. Now whilst  I have visited several casinos in Europe, a casino in India was something new to me and the hoarding had aroused enough of curiosity for me to visit this one.   I’m not a gamer nor do I enjoy liquor; hence was a little apprehensive about the experience as the general mindset of most Indians is that a Casino is a place meant only for men.

I guess every apprehension of mine was put to rest the minute I stepped on to the Casino. So here is my firsthand experience of Deltin Royale, Panjim Goa

The Cruise:

Deltin Royale, Goa is India’s largest live offshore gaming and Entertainment vessel. The ship has 850 gaming positions spread across 40,000 sqft across. The five-level casino offers live entertainment including floorshows, bands, stand-up comedy acts and much more. Whiskys and Vegas offer world cuisine buffet and a –la –carte menus; the finest single malts, wines & live cooking stations.

The Gamming areas:

  • Deltin Royale exceeds your expectation and offers plenty of action to every gamer.  It has its exclusive card room and a dedicated flush room.

Sky bar:

Sitting under the starlight on the top most level of the vessel, sipping my favourite cocktail, soaking in the ambience with a 360-degree panoramic view of the Mandovi river was quite a memorable moment for me. Level 5 has an open stage for dance acts along with sitting arrangements & buffet services for the guests.

  • Entertainment
  •  Deltin Royale just not a casino but an entertainment destination as well, offering you a wide array of entertainment to choose from.You can experience entertainment like nowhere else on board Deltin Royale. From mesmerising international dancers to comedy club shows, instrumental live performances to rock music bands. The Royale experience promises to keep you enthralled throughout the night.The food:

    One would be surprised at the variety of food served at Vegas- separate buffets to cater to the veg and the non-veg featuring world cuisine, Indian & Goan Specialties & a vast variety of vegetarian delicacies. A  chaat and oriental counter being the cherry on the cake.

    The whiskeys premium lounge is a luxurious lounge for the VIP guests only, It hosts some of the most exquisite collection of single malts in the World along with a rare collection of cigars .where you can sit back and relax, listening to music of the world. This lounge offers the finest luxury at its best.  Delectable Tandoori & Curry dishes, stir fries, roasts & above all our signature vegetarian cuisine.

The staff:

Running a show on the water is not an easy task & it can turn into a nightmare without the support of a competent team. Deltin Royale boasts of a well-synchronized team that takes care of every guest and is at their service 24 x7 leaving them happy

Other amenities:

As I said in the starting Deltin Royale has something to offer to every guest. It is just not a casino but one Royale  Experience. If you have an infant or a toddler, the crèche on board Deltin Royale will take care of every need of your little one.


Deltin Royale is prominently located on  River Mandovi.  A small ride via the speedboat carries every visitor to the Ship every 15 minutes.

Overall Experience:

I would love to visit this place again for a wonderful evening with someone special on Deltin Royale Goa. Make sure you reserve a table in advance to avoid the long-standing queue.

Till we meet next with a new property review.

Stay happy & keep travelling.
