Galveston Poker Cruise Coming in October 2014

Edit: Originally, we mistakenly said the poker cruise was in October 2013. It is actually being held in October 2014.

Looking to satisfy your poker fix while also taking in some of the nicest scenery in the world? Then we have good news…

Poker magazine Ante Up just announced it will have a poker cruise departing from Galveston on October 19-26, 2014 aboard Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas.

Now, most people are aware of the electronic poker tables that most cruise ships offer in their casinos. That’s not the case here. Ante Up and Royal Caribbean have partnered up to offer a live, Vegas-style multi-table poker room.

In total, the poker room will be open at least 76 hours during the trip — more than three full days! There will also be classes, cash games, single-table tournaments and four tournaments (including a $350 “Main Event”).

Check out the schedule below. If you’re interested in more information, check out Ante Up’s website for all the details.
