They play Texas holdem on the Emerald Princess - she is a brand new ship and they have an electronic holdem table - I was dubious at first but it grows on you. They have competitions as well as private games with pre agreed stakes.

Hi, I have played texas hold em cash games on the oceana, but the card room manager was a poker player and keen! Also they have a small game 3-5 dollars on the navigator of the seas - I am on it aug 28th so hope for a game.

I played TH em on Ocean Village in East Carribean; gave me and friend tuiton for a while, a few joined in, we won a bit then, then the hustlers moved in and I lost £50 very easily. Beware of those that say they dont know how to play. The bank takes a cut (10%) every game so there is a diminishing pot of money unless someone else joins. Good for 10 minutes but blinking dangerous. Cash game, £1 stakes but double up quickly. Chris - I'll stick to Roullette and takes my chances as I have no skill ... and thats what youll need.

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
