I read on cruise reviews that there is a "high stakes" poker game in one of the lounges. Does anyone know the cost of entering, and the payout? Is this just on one night or each night?
Thanks!

I've never heard/seen that on any of the ships I've been on - can you give us the link to the review you read.

No one ever was able to answer this...
It is not for me, but my husband needs to know how much "hidden money"he needs to be storing away.

Hey, I have not personally seen any poker or side betting on any of the modern cruises that I have been on. It's not to say it isn't there but I have not seen it. However, when you get to islands such as Nassau, They do have those areas in the casinos there. There is a normally a dollar amount of chips you have to pre-purchase to enter them. However also, there are cruise lines that I have yet to try. I never seen those areas on the Mariner though. They do have Carribbean Poker and other card games to play and the normal table is $5 and up from there.

Thanks for your reply!
I'll let everyone know for sure when I get back if there is something like what that guy wrote about in the cigar bar.

Tyler, Texas - which is in between Dallas and Shreveport,LA. It is considered East Texas. We really miss Florida, and are trying to get back there. My husband is a golf professional, and they are a dime a dozen in FL.
It would also make cruising cheaper since I could knock out the airfare.
Oh well...
