One of the most unique types of poker vacations you can take is a poker cruise, specifically via Card Player Cruises, the world’s leading poker cruise company. Founded back in 1992, Card Player Cruises runs a full-service poker room on each cruise they’re aboard and provides exclusive access to their poker room to vacationers who’ve booked through them.
What is a Poker Cruise?
On a poker cruise, vacationing poker players get to visit many exotic ports of call as well as experience all the fun and excitement of some of the world’s largest and most state-of-the-art, amenity-filled cruise ships. On top of that, they get to have their vacation experience topped off by being able to play poker on board pretty much whenever they want. So you can be dealt at the felt anywhere from the Caribbean to Alaska to Dubai to New Zealand, and more!
As much as we can write about poker cruises, there’s nothing like hearing about them directly from the company’s founders. Be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Poker Hall of Famer Linda Johnson and Women in Poker Hall of Famer Jan Fisher.
What to Expect?
Depending on the size of the booking group, your poker cruise may feature anywhere from 10–50 tables of action. The poker room is operational non-stop throughout your cruise, save for during dinners and when the ship is docked at port.
While at sea, you’ll naturally find poker players of all different skill levels (fish, sharks and whales). Generally speaking, however, most of the people with you in the poker room will be recreational players. Beginners are welcome to attend free poker lessons while more experienced players are invited to free poker seminars to learn advanced tips and strategies.
Texas Hold’em is the most popular game onboard and it’s spread at a variety of limits. Naturally, Card Player Cruises’ knowledgeable and friendly dealers are happy to spread Omaha and other poker games upon request as well. Finally, there’s at least 1 multi-table poker tournament held on each poker cruise.
