CPPT and Card Player Cruises annoucne September tourney

Break out the deck shoes and the Dramamine (if you must, but Card Player Cruises says it’s not necessary). The CPPT has teamed up with Card Player Cruises to offer a 7-night tournament cruise this September. The cruise will be on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas and will travel around the Western Caribbean from September 23 – 30, making port calls at some of the Caribbean’s most exotic destinations.

There will be a lot of poker activity during the week, but the highlight will certainly be the $450 buy-in NLHE Main Event, offering a guaranteed prize pool of $25,000. During the cruise, there will be four satellites available for a chance to gain entry into the Main Event. There will also be survivor events, cash tournaments and multi-table tournaments.

The cruise will hit some of the Caribbean’s most alluring ports, such as Nassau, Bahamas, Mexico’s Cozumel Island and Costa Maya, as well as Roatan in Honduras. While onboard the ship, there are some activities, including Broadway shows, comedy, dance and jazz clubs, a casino, 24 eateries and much more. The ship is one of the largest cruise ships in the world.

Allure of the Sea offers several cabin types, including Owners and Grand Suites, Junior Suites, exterior cabins with ocean views and interior cabins. The poker cruise is available for under $690 per person up to more than $4,000 per person. Prices increase ninety days before the departure date, so reserve early and use the extra money to get in on the poker action.
