Just make sure you can make the next cruise. If you do win and you can't make it they are transferable. Meaning you can sell it.

When we arrived, we learned that the tables would be divided between the Bliss lounge a separate, completely smoke-free room and a section of the casino that they had cleared for the event—a section that was open to all the smoke from surrounding slot machines and tables. It was insane. For example, it would be laughably easy to cheat, for a friend to slip another friend chips during a table move or table break. Most cruise line casinos still allow smoking. I know the also have Card Player magazine events on their ships occassionally. Van's, which was great, but the island is not really set up for DIY snorkeling and we're not used to dealing with busy beaches and aggressive vendors. We will never cruise with NCL again for a variety of reasons but this tournament, particularly, soured us on the cruise line. I am curious as to what else happened that got you to never want to sail with NCL again. Other NCL tournaments, no issues at all. DRUNKS — I get the sense from what we saw and what other guests shared with us, that NCL does not regulate over-consumption of alcohol in general, the poker rooms being no exception. No regard for structure, price, etc. KKB, I'll just note that, no, the main event was not a turbo, but 30 minutes is a fast format for a big event. I would have let you know smoke could be an issue, since the 'poker room' aka Bliss Ultra Lounge, was not large enough to hold the entire main event field. This open area was every bit as smoky as the rest of the casino and the casino reeked of smoke. I would never have done so if we had been told that he would be playing in these conditions. Likewise, signing up for cash games was a joke. Had the pleasure of dining with the Casino Director aboard Breakaway Smoking is being addressed on the newest ships, and ships like Encore and Bliss have closed off areas in the casino for smokers, as opposed to the other way around. Cash games? Yes, I do plan on filing a complaint, not that I expect it to go anywhere. Drink service was practically non-existent. None of the staff did anything about this and so one player ruined the game for the rest of the table. It'll likely change at some point in the future. I see. On the drive back to the ship, discussing the cruise ships and the crowds, our host said, "I miss the way our island was seven or eight years ago.

I thought this would be a perfect opportunity for him to play and for me to relax in a new location. FORMAT — Until we boarded the ship, we could only find a rough outline of the tournament schedule and no explanation of the tournament s format. It wasn't the ubiquitous small tournaments held all the time across the fleet.

The entertainment was collectively the best we have had on any cruise. I'm sorry your cruise was less than memorable. I hope this review will help anyone who is thinking about participating in future NCL Poker Challenge cruises.

Cruising isn't for everybody. We avoid big cities and cruise ports when we travel. I recieved better information from you than from everyone I spoke with at NCL combined!

I only played in the Main Event and ended up busting out early on day 2 the dreaded KK vs AA all in preflop on a short stack.

At one point, Fred shouted loudly to a nearby server to ncl poker challenge 2020 for sale drinks…and was ncl poker challenge 2020 for sale. The main even was not a turbo by any means. I spoke at length with a woman who was playing in the main event with a very drunk man at her table.

Thanks, Greek Boss. I booked our trip and entered Fred in the Poker Challenge based on the few tidbits I could find online and some information provided by a Casinos at Sea representative.

We rented scooters from Capt. At one of the tables where Fred was playing, it took three hours for players to get any drinks at all, even juice or water. Really disappointed. And the levels increased slowly. When I spoke with a Casinos at Sea representative about the NCL Poker Challenge, he assured me that the tournament was held read more a room separate from the casino and that the entire poker area would be non-smoking.

The tournament players were frustrated and annoyed at the disturbance during tournament play. I was on the cruise as well. It should be illegal to expose employees to secondhand smoke. Again, have found the same in Vegas. Last year on the Escape, the Skyline Bar which is basically in the same spot as the Bliss Lounge on the Getaway was used, along with spill over onto the casino floor just like this year, however the Skyline Bar is not enclosed like the Bliss lounge, so smoke would permeate there.

I really feel bad for the NCL staff who have to work in that environment. All poker rooms on land are smoke free as far as I know. I did get to play at Joe Cada's table for three levels to end day 1A, which was pretty cool. Service overall was great. Thanks Mike. Everyone else? I have also attached photos of the various tournament formats for reference.

On a good note, DH won us a cruise on next year's poker cruise on Nov. RCCL does a much better job with their tournaments.

Otherwise, yes, seems like you and Hubs ncl poker challenge 2020 for sale on everything else. I agree. Lines were random and players would finally get to the front only to discover that they were in the wrong line, though there was no signage to indicate which line to stand in and no one directing the players who were trying to sign up.

I had little interest in playing beyond the main event because of the poor organization. Read on if you want details. It was disgusting. In fact, Mike Mizrachi was on one last week while we were on the Getaway. I've played texas hold 'em on a cruise two or three times and it is at least in my opinion much more relaxed and less serious than any hold 'em game I have played on land.

Just like three drunks ruined our first dinner aboard. We're both ncl poker challenge 2020 for sale sensitive to smoke--Fred more so even than me.

Also, it's partly personal preference. It was much better organised. I do want to counter one comment. It was difficult to get much detailed information about the tournaments until the day we boarded thanks to the folks here who helped me out! These are among the many reasons I play duplicate bridge on the transatlantic cruises, instead.

The only port we got off on was Roatan, because we'd thought of visiting there for years for a dive vacation.

Depends on the severity. As an example, while the main event was on, the casino was trying to get cash games going as tables freed up and the casino host shouted non-stop over the PA system calling names for cash games— really loudly.

Outside of the Bliss lounge it was even worse, with all the noise, crowding, and smoke cheats for zynga poker on android the surrounding casino.

We've been traveling together for 21 years, almost all self-guided, adventure, off-the-beaten-path kind of stuff and that's really more our thing. We were also on click to see more sailing and my guy played in the main and a couple of the smaller tourney's as well as a good amount of cash games.

I've done the last three poker challenge cruises. If you had similar experiences, your complaints might help. The inexperienced and drunks tend to fall out of cash games much quicker or give up more money Some lad based casinos are smoke free form what I understand, but most are not. I've heard that cruise casinos aren't to Vegas standards but I really thought that a tournament of that size, with such a large pot and attending poker pros would have been much more professional. The tournament was played in a totally separate conference room, non smoking, plenty of room between tables and really well run. He was so intoxicated and slow that it would take an entire level to make one orbit of the table sometimes he even nodded off. He has done the Poker Challenge before. And, yes, I'm sure other people had a great experience, but this was my husband's experience, YMMV and all that. Chaotic, disorganized, cramped, loud, and lacking the level of professionalism experienced players should expect from an event of this size. Freeze out tournaments are becoming more rare these days. I plan on forwarding this information to NCL for all the good it will do. I will say I used to play poker more regularly in Vegas and various casinos in Pennsylvania and I always tell people not to hold casinos on a cruise to the same standard as any Vegas casino or tournament in general. This should have been a red flag for all that followed. Smoke doesn't really bother me unless I'm next to the cigarette. Players are just too close together to allow it. I would suggest filing a complaint with NCL and see what their response will be. I am sorry you didn't have a good time. As for why we won't cruise with NCL again, I'll detail that in my general review but the smoking is a big issue.
