Default Hold 'em on Majesty of the Seas?

Hi. Hubby and I are taking our first cruise in October on Majesty of the Seas. Does anyone know if Texas Hold 'em is available (either tournaments or cash games) on this ship?

Thanks in advance ...

As promised, here is the poker situation on the Majesty. They have one table which is 10 seat electronic table. takes a few hands to get used to how it works if you are used to live dealers. The game is 2/4 or 3/6 no limit. Never saw anyone sit down to play. I sat there for about 15 to 20 min and no one else played. believe it or not this was good info for me. I took it as a sign that the poker players on ship were scared of losing money. How did this help? well each night usually starting around 8 or 9 they had $50 buy in single table tournys. they continued as long as players signed up for them. the first night there was 1 then after each night there seemed to be more interest but most were the same players. Since none were willing to sit at a cash table it was easy to muscle the table in the tournys. I placed 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 4th. payouts were $300, $100 for 1st and 2nd. ANy other needed info let me know.
