High-rolling travelers will soon be able to enjoy an expanded focus on gaming in the land where it originated.

 Crystal Cruises’ Chance & Fortune Experiences of Discovery cruise will sail throughout the Greek Isles, revisiting the origins of gambling and Tycho, the goddess of Chance, and her son, Fortune.

 Departing 26 September 2009, the 12-day cruise will host extra tournaments in Texas Hold ‘em, Blackjack and Slots, with cash prizes and waived entry fees for Blackjack and Slot tournaments.
