The Babylon is a full service casino.
The Babylon Casino offers all of the table games and slot machine offerings you would expect from a fairly large size casino. Smoking is allowed in the casino but only if you are playing a game or at the one half of the bar where it is allowed; otherwise lighting up is forbidden. The bar at the Babylon Casino often has a live guitarist playing Country tunes.
The Babylon Casino offers hundreds of slot machines that start at a nickel per play.
A standard selection of casino table games are available here including black jack and several varieties of poker, including Texas Hold ’em.
There are two roulette tables and two craps tables to set the gaming foundation at the Freedom Casino.
Through its bar, the Babylon Casino offers several specialty martinis including a pomtini, appletini, blue moon martini and tiramisu martini, all for $8.95. Also available here is Carnival’s signature cocktail, “The Fun Ship,” which comes with a souvenir glass and is made from mixing amaretto, rum, vodka, apricot brandy, and some juice (if you keep the glass, each refill is only $6.75). Standard cocktails available at the bar range between $5.50 and $7.50.
Note that the Freedom also has some interesting frozen drinks that are available at the Casino and elsewhere. The list includes such unusual names as the Kiss on the Lips, Mocha Chocolate Getaway, and Hurricane Waves. You’ll also find more standard daiquiris, all for $7.25. Each of these drinks can be done without the alcohol for $4.75.
Champagne, wine, port, Cognac and brandy by the glass will set you back $5.25; drinks straight up or on the rocks range from $4.95 to $7.50 depending on the liquor with which it’s made.
There is no food served at the casino.
Instead of continuously plugging machines with coins, you can sign up for the Player’s Club and use the Sail & Sign card to work the slots. With this card you earn points, 1000 points equivalent to $10 cash back. If you earn 1500 points on slots with your card, your drinks are free!
For more information on the Players Club Sail & Sign Card, and the rewards programs, visit the Carnival Website.
