Cruising

Never taken a cruise before? Or cruised, but just not on a poker cruise? Visit Ante Up's Cruise Guide page for more information on the whole process.

Poker Room

Ramze Suliman, a veteran executive of land-based and at-sea poker rooms, will transform the ships' conference centers into the perfect place to play, complete with professional dealers, tables and equipment. The non-smoking poker room is always conveniently located near restrooms, a smoking lounge, the dining room and elevators, with a cocktail server on call.

Poker Games

We'll spread any game at any limit, based on demand. Every cruise is different, so we can't guarantee what games/limits our guests will want to play until we get on--board, but these are some of the games we've spread regularly in the past:

  • $1/$3 no-limit hold'em ($100-$300 buy-in)
  • $2/$5 no-limit hold'em ($200-$500 buy-in)
  • $3/$6 limit hold'em
  • $4/$8 limit Omaha/8
  • Single-table and multitable tournaments
