Second Stop on Card Player Poker Tour Announced

Card Player Poker Tour Main Event To Take Place Aboard World's Largest Cruise Ship the MS Oasis of the Seas

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2012) - Card Player Media today announces the second event of its new live poker tournament series, the Card Player Poker Tour (CPPT), will take place aboard the popular cruise ship MS Oasis of the Seas. Card Player Cruises, the premier poker cruise company, will host the event.

The poker festival will take place April 13 - 20, 2013, during Royal Caribbean's 7-Night Western Caribbean Cruise. The event will feature a $1,100 main event, single table satellites, plus live games. The ship will depart Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and will make ports of call in Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica; and Cozumel, Mexico.

World Series of Poker champion and well-known travel blogger Barry Shulman says of the cruise ship, "The MS Oasis of the Seas, the first of its class, is more akin to a small city. The ship is in fact so large it does not fit in the Panama Canal. It has a crew of about 2,400 and 6,000 passengers. It and its sister ship are by far the nicest mass-market ships. They are family friendly and have way more to do that any other ship by a large margin."

As founder of, Shulman has been on over 100 cruises, 36 ships, and 16 cruise lines.
