Card sharks and poker masters looking to enjoy a cruise that integrates their favourite hobby can now indulge their passion with Island Cruises
The cruise line is holding its first ever No Limit Texas Hold'em poker tournament cruise on the Island Star
Sailing on March 28th 2008, passengers taking part in the tournament will be in with a chance of winning part of the £20,000 prize fund.
"And there's no need to go alone, take along a non-playing guest and they can share your cabin and join in the fun from just £529. This includes all the above except entry into the tournament," Island Cruises
Non-poker playing passengers can enjoy other benefits of the seven-night Mediterranean cruise
such as visiting ports in Palma, Livorno, Genoa, Marseille, Barcelona and Valencia.
Poker players, meanwhile, can look forward to champagne in their cabin on arrival and cocktail parties.Island Cruises
