In a move that follows suit with the general cruise trend for poker tournaments, Princess Cruises has announced it is to offer its first ever Players Championship.

The series of slot, blackjack and Texas Hold 'em poker tournaments will take place across the Princess Cruises' fleet between May and November and will reach their zenith with a grand final event held onboard Crown Princess between November 30th and December 7th 2008.

The first of the tournaments will commence on May 1st on the Caribbean Princess' four-day Caribbean cruise.

Other ships to host tournaments will include Diamond Princess, Star Princess and Coral Princess.

"Our casinos have become favorites of players at sea, with an atmosphere that caters to gaming enthusiasts," commented Anthony Kaufman, Princess Senior Vice-President of commercial affairs.

The grand prize for the ultimate poker champion will be $10,000 (£5,000) while more than $100,000 in cash prizes along with 18 free cruises will be on offer during the whole competition.

Island Cruises has also recently announced it is to host a poker cruise.

What our customers say

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
