Default Legal Gambling

Well, I would like to get some information about legal gambling on the cruise.
I know it is legal to gamble when you are sailing on the international waters but what about the national borders.
For example is it legal to gamble when you are sailing in the Greece waters. If it is legal what about the harbours, is it still legal when your cruise is in the harbour?
I should like to learn the laws in Greece, Italy, USA, GB, French etc. Or is there any accepted principle on the subject.

Thank you in advance for your help

The general rule is no casinos on ships are open when the ship is port. They open the casinos in the evening, when the ship is at sea, traveling from one port to another.

Kuki,
I assume that is also true on Bermuda cruises when the ship is in port for 3 or 4 whole days and nights ?

Ships casinos are closed during their entire visit to Bermuda. There are several islands in the Caribbean where the casinos are allowed to stay open in the evenings while the ship is in port.
They've done this to convince the ships to stay longer in port.
