Are there "friendly" poker games available....or poker chips to create our own games? Is Texas Holdem available in the casino? Actually, I'd like to learn it more than anything else, and thought a cruise ship - rather than vegas - would be a fun place to learn. Going on the Triumph next month.
Nope. No poker table games on cruise ships. The ship's casino size is limited, and you'll usually find one Roulette table, one Craps table, several Blackjack/Caribbean Stud Poker tables, and mostly slots. I've never even seen a Pai Gow table on a cruise ship.
we were told that the glory has a card room and will be playing texas hold em and several other games as well, this was told to us by a carnival rep that we have been working with, also the same person that gave us our upgrade.
There ARE poker card tables on ships, although not on every ship, I've heard.
