“We’re very excited to welcome everyone back to Carina Bay, both our guests and staff,” Divi General Manager Anton Kuipers said in a statement.
“Many of our crew members have returned and are eager to get back to doing what we do best – making sure people have a good time,” he said.
The casino had an opening ceremony and party with local favorites Stanley and The Ten Sleepless Knights and DJ Rebel.
