ANTE UP CRUISES

Ante Up Poker Cruise packages are a great way for your room to reward loyal players or attract new ones. You can award cruise packages in your room through satellites, high hands, bad-beat jackpots or through an Ante Up Poker Tour Set Sail Series … or any other way you choose. We send you certificates to give to your winners and they book directly with Ante Up. This can be a completely player-funded promotion for your room! We offer generous promotional support for our cruise partners through all of Ante Up’s products, including an article in Ante Up Magazine and on AnteUpMagazine.Com, a link to your promotion from our Ante Up Poker Cruises webpage, mentions on the Ante Up PokerCast and on Ante Up’s social media channels, a dedicated e-blast to our database and on-board exposure. Ante Up Poker Cruises transform the conference centers aboard Royal Caribbean cruise ships into a professionally staffed and equipped poker room. All packages include cruise fare, port charges and taxes & fees for two people sharing the stateroom. Winners are responsible for all other expenses. We have two deadlines for you to complete your giveaways by each cruise. The first is for “no-risk” giveaways (satellites, etc., where the cruise package isn’t guaranteed. You agree only to buy packages for which your satellite generates enough money). The second is for “guaranteed” giveaways (you commit to buying the package).
