Default Texas Holdem - Explorer of the Seas

This will be my first cruise with my girlfriend and was wondering if anyone could tell me how the tournaments work on board. I phoned the RCI call centre and they told me "Well they will figure that on board, hmmm" does anyone have an idea as well as the limits and any other overall info. Also if anyone knows about the blackjack tournaments. I will be travelling March 16th Southern Carribbean.

Thanks

Default Texas hold Em

Most games at 5 and 10, with no ante, $2 and $5 blinds.
Tournaments: 2 types. House takes 10%

7 tables, 49 players, $50 buy in with $25 re-buy before third bump in the blinds. Blinds go up quickly, tourney is over in 1hr 30 min to 2 hours

or

Individual tables, winner at each table $125 buy in, no re buy. WInner gets $450, second gets $325 House keeps balance

WOW a reply. Thank you so much.

Most games at 5 and 10 (DO YOU MEAN THE TIMES?), with no ante, $2 and $5 blinds.
Tournaments: 2 types. House takes 10%

7 tables, 49 players, $50 buy in with $25 re-buy before third bump in the blinds. Blinds go up quickly, tourney is over in 1hr 30 min to 2 hours. (HOW MANY PLACES DOES IT PAY AND HOW MUCH IS 1st PLACE?)

or

Individual tables, winner at each table $125 buy in, no re buy. WInner gets $450, second gets $325 House keeps balance.


ARE ALL THE TOURNAMENTS or REGULAR GAMES RUN CONSTANTLY THROUGHOUT THE DAY OR ONLY AT SPECIFIC TIMES?

I forgot to ask. Do you have to register beforehand in most circumstances?

Is there a waiting list or can you get into tournaments no problem?

Do they do larger tournaments than the 49 people?

Do the rebuys go into the tournament pot?
