I don't gamble but I can tell you that your poker cruise will be on one of the most exciting ships ever built. The Oasis Of The Seas is absolutely amazing. Tons of stuff for you and your children. Great youth program. They will not be bored and neither will you. On cruises over Halloween the ships have the theme in hand, and also if the kids bring costumes they can trick-or-treat all over the public areas. The public lounges and areas will have candy to hand out.
