Royal Poker Tournament

About RPT

The Royal Poker Tournament (RPT) is an in house Royal Caribbean No Limit Texas Hold’em Poker tournament. The 2019 event will be held on board the amazing Harmony of the Seas, sailing from Port Canaveral on December 1st 2019. Prize money is expected to be in excess of $100,000

The Royal Poker Tournament is a perfect way to mix poker with a cruise vacation. The conference rooms are transformed into a fully functional 20 table card room with busy cash games, additional tournaments, and of course the RPT Main Event.

The card room staff and management is carefully selected from the Royal Caribbean fleet. The staff are brought on to the ship specifically for the Royal Poker Tournament Event. The selection process for RPT staff is in depth and it is generally recognized as an achievement to be selected for such an event.

The RPT was developed in 2006 by Daniel Samson and the late Stuart Reading (Director of Casino Operations for Royal Caribbean) . The first event in 2007 wasn’t actually called the Royal Poker Tournament it was called the Mariner Masters. Only players who had won a satellite on the Mariner of the Seas qualified for the event.
