Ante Up Poker Cruises to sail from Los Angeles in January 2016



Ante Up Poker Cruises will return to Los Angeles in January 2016, with a seven-night sailing to the Mexican Riviera aboard NCL’s recently revitalized Jewel.

"Ante Up has greatly increased its presence in California over the past couple of years, and we’re excited to yet again give our West Coast fans an opportunity to join us on a poker cruise without having to travel very far," said Scott Long, co-owner of Ante Up Poker Media with Christopher Cosenza.

The cruise departs Los Angeles on Jan. 24, with port stops in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta before returning to Los Angeles on Jan. 31. The professionally staffed and equipped Ante Up Poker Room will be open more than 76 hours, featuring cash games, tournaments and free poker classes, and passengers also will be treated to an open-bar cocktail party in addition to all of the other great things that come with cruising.

Rates start at $799 per person based on double occupancy and are guaranteed through Nov. 2 or while supplies last, whichever comes first. Each stateroom also will get a complimentary bottle of wine.
