Have you ever wanted to ride along the Malecon in Havana, Cuba in a classic American car? Can you picture yourself cuddling up with a sloth or a koala bear? Is walking on a glacier or dog mushing on your bucket list? All these experiences and more can be had when you take an amazing vacation with Card Player Cruises, the no. 1 poker cruise business in the world.

Card Player Cruises is well known for running the best poker operation and having the best poker action on the open seas. Whether you play cash games or are a tournament lover, you will love their professional, no abuse poker room. Recently, they revamped all of their tournament structures to give players more starting chips and more play in every event. They have teamed up with the Card Player Poker Tour to offer a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool on the upcoming Sept. 23 cruise to Nassau, Roatan, Cozumel and Costa Maya. There will be four super satellites to provide opportunities for passengers to win their buy-in to the $450 main event. Time is running out to book this cruise, so do so today by clicking here.

Since Card Player Cruises has such a high percentage of repeat customers, they are always looking for new destinations…hence they will be traveling to Cuba for the first time on Nov. 5. There will even be an overnight in Havana allowing passengers time to experience the local nightlife.

The last cruise of 2018 will take place on Nov. 28 featuring a 14-night trip to Australia and New Zealand. The cruise begins and ends in Sydney, so you may want to explore the Blue Mountains, Ayers Rock, or the Great Barrier Reef while you are in that part of the world.

2019 starts off with a bang when Card Player Cruises hosts the Heartland Poker Tour Jan. 26 on the biggest cruise ship in the world, the Symphony of the Seas. This cruise will feature an $1,100 main event in addition to other tournaments.

In February, Card Player Cruises sets sail for South America. The voyage includes a three-day stop in Rio de Janeiro during the world-famous Carnival. Other 2019 cruises are scheduled to go to Alaska, the Eastern and Western Caribbean, and the Bahamas.
If you’ve never been on a poker cruise, you don’t know what you are missing. Card Player Cruises partner Linda Johnson, aka “The First Lady of Poker” said, “A poker cruise is the best vacation you can give your loved ones and yourself. You can play as much or as little poker as you want. We close the poker room when we are in port and during dinner hours so that players have time to enjoy the cruise experience. The majority of our players are recreational players who want to combine cruising and poker and travel with a group. We have games from $2-$4 limit hold’em to $1-$3 no-limit hold’em and higher. Card Player Cruises will spread any game that enough people want to play.”

In 2017, Mark and Tina Napolitano joined forces with Linda Johnson and Jan Fisher and the foursome are now business partners. Johnson said, “We are fortunate to have the customer service and operational skills of the Napolitanos. They have an extensive background in the poker business, having founded Poker Pages and Poker School Online. In such a short time, they have greatly improved our product. They’ve updated our website, introduced a modern tournament registration system, and have revamped and improved our administrative procedures. Mark, Tina, Jan, and I will escort every cruise to personally ensure that our guests have a wonderful time.”

Poker cruises are for people of all ages. Many players bring their children who are entertained all day long at kid’s camp. There is no difference between a poker cruise and a non-poker cruise, as far as ship activities are concerned. All of the usual scheduled cruise events are offered such as movies, trivia, a full casino, a spa and fitness center, internet center, dance classes, sports activities, lectures, cooking lessons, poolside games, barbeques, Ping Pong, shuffleboard, a disco, nightly Las Vegas-style shows, and many other activities to suit everyone’s interests. Most Royal Caribbean ships have rock climbing walls, ice skating rinks, and miniature golf, and some even have Surfriders, zip lines, carousels, bumper cars, indoor sky diving, Broadway theaters, and Aqua theaters. Today’s cruise ships have modern stabilizers so even those who are prone toward sea sickness rarely have a problem.
