Frequently Asked Questions

DO I NEED A PASSPORT TO CRUISE?

No, but it is highly recommended. If you choose not to travel with a passport, a certified copy of your birth certificate (not a photocopy, but a stamped official birth certificate from your states capitol) and a valid state issued photo I.D. A passport will allow you quicker access through airport security, faster entry onto the ship, and a faster process of returning to the U.S.

WHY SHOULD I BOOK WITH YOU?

This is a private and exclusive group on a cruise ship. Booking with anyone other than us will not garner you access to our poker room or activities.


Besides, we've got over 30 years’ experience in the travel industry to ensure you have every travel need met.

WHAT KIND OF CASH GAMES ?

The main games will be NLH 2/5 and PLO/PLO8 1/3/5 and higher. Although we will spread any game at any limit beginning at 1/3.





WHAT IS A POKER CRUISE, AND IS IT EXPENSIVE?

A poker cruise is a regular cruise, but you are part of a private group that has VIP access to the RealGrinders poker room for the duration of the cruise. General cruise guests on this sailing will be unable to attend poker events.

Our rates are competitive with the offerings of Royal Caribbean's published rates and may fluctuate during the year. We obtain a discounted group rate ensuring you receive the best rates we can offer, with plenty of amenities and activities that are unique to our poker group.

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO BOOK MY CRUISE?

3 reasons you should book as soon as possible.

1. Early bird prices. Although we cannot predict the future, prices tend to rise as the sail date gets closer. Lock in now to guarantee these prices.

2. The poker players in the first 50 cabins that have been booked and paid in full will receive entry into a freeroll in which we are giving away $1000 in tournament buy ins.

3. The earlier you book, the more buzz it creates...the more buzz we get, the more action our poker room will have!
