For anyone that has fond memories of the Party Poker Million and other poker tournament cruise destinations you’ll be excited to know that both the World Poker Tour and the Heartland Poker Tour plan on reviving the poker cruise, with both tours announcing upcoming stops that will take place aboard a luxury cruise ship.
The HPT will be hosting the “HPT on the High Seas” from January 19-26, 2013. The tournament will feature a $1,100 Main Event aboard the MSC Poesia, which will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, FL, and make stops in Cozumel, Mexico, Honduras, the Grand Cayman Islands and Jamaica during the week-long excursion.
