Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) March 16, 2009
Join Casino Player magazine and the World Poker Tour for a week of freestyle cruising and exciting poker action on the 2009 Alaska poker cruise.
Called a "Poker Player's Poker Cruise" the Alaska tour is an annual gaming adventure to the land of the midnight sun and features world class poker action and heart-pounding excitement amidst a backdrop of vivid northern scenery. A full spread of live games and limits are available in the professionally staffed poker room, along with a cash prize buy-in Hold 'em tournament, and a special $150 buy-in no limit Texas Hold 'em event where players compete for a seat into a WPT main event.
"We are the only poker cruise company that offers a seat in a World Poker Tour Main Event," said Glenn Fine, Publisher and CEO of Casino Player magazine. "Plus with such a low buy-in and a limited number of players, the odds of walking away with a $10,000 main event seat or a seat in the WPT Celebrity Invitational tournament are drastically better."
While poker may be the star attraction, that's hardly the only thing to do during this 7-day cruise aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line Star. The ship departs Seattle on June 6 on a tour that includes Ketchikan, Juneau, Sawyer Glacier, Skagway, and Prince Rupert. "There's so much do to, even if you're not a poker player," said Cathy Maura, Director of Cruise Operations. "Guests can take wildlife excursions, go whale-watching, take a helicopter ride over majestic glaciers, relax on a site-seeing adventure by rail, or even try their hand at dog sledding!"
Discounted cabin rates begin at only $659 plus tax and must be booked by March 20. To participate in the poker events and tournaments, cruisers must book their cabin through WPT Cruises.
