The world of poker is changing and could become a family affair with the latest poker tournament news emerging that combines a Caribbean cruise with 7 fantastic days and nights of poker action. Famous cruise specialists Royal Caribbean International is linking up with WPT (World Poker Tour) to bring this cruise to poker players from around the world but as yet we have not heard of any online poker qualifiers although we shall keep our ears to the ground for you. We are sure this will fill up fairly quickly so if you are interested get in touch with WPTCruise.com. The ship being used is Freedom of the Seas and although no official WPT events will take place there will be plenty of poker action to keep guests busy including cash games, free rolls and ladies only events. The poker cruise in the poker tournament news will probably start in Miami and take places such as the Cayman Islands, Mexico and Jamaica and we have heard that there might even be a visit to Haiti. Most cruises allow for tours to the places they visit during the day followed by travel (cruising) at night which is perfect for a poker player and needless to say the food and entertainment on board will be spectacular. Every passenger will also receive a WPT sponsored welcome package and coaching will be given so whether you are a novice poker player that likes cruising or a poker player who wants to try cruising this is the best of both worlds. We are sure here at poker tournament news that more will be heard about this promotion which incidentally is taking place from September 30th this year and we shall keep our eyes on the online poker sites to see if anyone is offering this as a prize in any online tournament.
