Blue Horizon Gambling Ship

Representatives with the Blue Horizon Casino gambling ship released new details Wednesday morning to answer questions about why they've temporarily stopped the cruises.

At a news conference held at a 10 a.m., officials said the ship will not offer any trips for three to four weeks so the company can install new engines at a cost of $1 million.  In addition a lightning strike hit the company's cell tower at the Port of Palm Beach which knocked out the communication system to the ship which handles its Internet, ATMs, and sports book kiosks.

The company is hoping to be back on the water in September.
