Card Player Poker Tour Heading To The High Seas
$1,100 Main Event Aboard World's Largest Cruise Ship In April 2013
Card Player Media announces the latest event of its new live poker tournament series, the Card Player Poker Tour (CPPT), will take place aboard the popular cruise ship MS Oasis of the Seas.
Card Player Cruises, the premier poker cruise company, will host the poker tournament April 13 – 20, 2013, during Royal Caribbean’s 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise. Packages start at just $979 per person for the 7-night cruise. To book the cruise, click here.
The event will feature a $1,100 main event, single table satellites, plus live games. The ship will depart Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and will make ports of call in Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica; and Cozumel, Mexico.
World Series of Poker champion and well-known travel blogger Barry Shulman says of the cruise ship, “The MS Oasis of the Seas, the first of its class, is more akin to a small city. The ship is in fact so large it does not fit in the Panama Canal. It has a crew of about 2,400 and 6,000 passengers. It and its sister ship are by far the nicest mass-market ships. They are family friendly and have way more to do that any other ship by a large margin.” As founder of JetSetWay.com, Barry has been on over 100 cruises, 36 ships, and 16 cruise lines.
