Schedules for upcoming Card Player Cruises!!

September 7, 2009

Card Player Cruises has been rocking over last few years with lots of fun vacations at sea including great poker action. Partners Linda Johnson, Jan Fisher, Bonnie Damiano, and Mark Tenner made a personal goal to ensure that every cruiser will have a great vacation. To make a successful trip, they
host welcome-aboard and farewell parties, organize exclusive excursions for their passengers, offer free lessons and seminars, conduct poker tournaments, maintain a wide variety of games and limits, provide a professional, friendly staff, and run a no-abuse cardroom. Card Player Cruises was the first cardroom to go nonsmoking (about six years ago), and still maintains that policy.

Now after a long period, in November, Card Player Cruises will return to the high seas aboard the 138,000 ton Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines’ Explorer of the Seas. Destinations over the next year for the cruising company include Alaska, the Mediterranean, and Mexico.

The nine-night Canada and New England Fall Foliage cruise will depart from Cape Liberty Cruise Port in New Jersey in November and steam up the eastern seaboard of the United States. Ports of call include Portland, Bar Harbor, Saint John, Halifax, and Boston and the cruise starts at $550 per person.

Besides everything, the other main attraction on the cruise will be its poker room. 100 to $200 buy-in poker tournaments will abound, with many private seminars and free poker lessons also taking place. In addition, passengers can play as much as they wish for, they can also enjoy a rock-climbing wall, ice skating rink, miniature golf course, basketball court, disco, spa, fitness center, pools, Jacuzzis, and shops.
