Card Player Cruises and the Card Player Poker Tour have joined forces to bring you an exciting event this fall. The 2018 CPPT Card Player Cruises event will take place aboard the Allure of the Seas on a seven-night cruise around the Western Caribbean from September 23-30. There will be tons of great poker action to choose from throughout the week, but the centerpiece of the whole affair is the $25,000 guaranteed, $450 buy-in no-limit hold’em CPPT main event. The tournament will take place while you are making your way between incredible destinations like Nassau in the Bahamas, the Mexican island of Cozumel, the island of Roatan in Honduras and Costa Maya, a stretch of Caribbean coastline on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Players looking to win their way into the main event at a discount can try to do so in one of the four super satellites to be held during the cruise. There will also be survivor events, a cruise cash tournament and regular multi-table tournaments on offer, as well as plenty of cash games. There are even lessons for beginners looking to expand their poker skills. The friendly poker room staff provide a welcoming environment for the true novice all the way up to the seasoned veteran.

The Allure of the Seas is part of the fleet of the largest cruise ships in the world. While there will, of course, be plenty of exciting things to do while at one of the four stops along the way, this massive ship has plenty to offer in terms of entertainment, including the Broadway show Mama Mia, stand up comedy, dance lounges, movies, a jazz club, trivia, an aqua theater, and nightly production shows. The ship has numerous activities to take advantage of, including a zipline, an ice skating rink, miniature golf, a casino, spa, duty-free shopping, Central Park, 24 separate eating venues, a Boardwalk area, robotic bars, and a sports complex.

Card Player Cruises shared some info regarding the ship and the itinerary for this cruise.

“The Allure has great stabilizers so seasickness is not a problem…in fact you actually have to go outside to see if it’s moving! This cruise stops in Nassau, Honduras, Cozumel, and Costa Maya. In Nassau, go to a private island or visit the beautiful Atlantis Casino. Cozumel and Costa Maya are famous for beautiful beaches. In Honduras, you will be able to hold a sloth, play with monkeys, or just relax on the beach. There are lots of excursions featuring trips to historical Ruins, ATVs, cooking classes, scuba diving, and snorkeling. The itinerary for this cruise can be summed up in two words: Bucket list!”
