Default Friendly Poker game?

I've never been on cruise but we are looking for Jan-Feb 2009 timeframe.

I know there are casinos on board, but I don't gamble - I play poker.

I know there are dedicated poker cruises, but I would be looking to play 1-2 times not the entire cruise. I also know there are casinos at many of the Caribbean locations, with poker, but I would probably spend the time with my wife and not at a table.

Do any of the HAL, Princess or Celebrity casinos have live poker tables? (not the new table game texas hold'em)

If I happen to strike up any interest with other guests, are there any card rooms where guests can get together for a friendly "home type" poker game? I generally travel with poker chips and cards. Are there any rules prohibiting guests playing cards for cash?

Thanks for any information.

We sail Regent Seven Seas cruises. Many times folks set up a friendly poker game. Usually use part of a closed restaurant after lunch. Ship has chips and cards which we use. Ship has sometimes provided refreshments for the players. I don't know about the cruise lines you mention; wouldn't hurt to take your chips and cards and chat with your fellow pax in casino and find a time and place for a friendly game.
