An Atlanta-based travel agency is teaming up with Royal Caribbean and the World Poker Tour to offer a cruise aimed at poker fans.
Theme cruise organizer the Cruise Authority announced plans this week for the WPT Cruise, a week-long group sailing on Royal Caribbean's 3,634-passenger Freedom of the Seas that will feature World Poker Tour cast members Mike Sexton, Vince Van Patten and the World Poker Tour's Royal Flush Girls.
Kicking off in Port Canaveral, Fla., on Sept. 30, the Western Caribbean outing is aimed at both beginner and experienced poker players, the agency says. An expansive poker room on the ship will feature cash games for any limit, sit-n-go tournaments, ladies-only events and free roll tournaments daily.
Port calls during the cruise include Falmouth, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and Royal Caribbean's private beach destination in Labadee, Haiti.
