Caribbean Poker Classic

The 5th annual Caribbean Poker Classic which was held from the 16th to the 23rd of  November, 2008 was the most popular and certainly the most adventurous of 2008. Why, you ask? Well thats because it was held aboard one of the world’s largest cruise ships, the Freedom of the Seas which sailed across San Juan Puerto Rico, Charlotte Amalie St. Thomas and Philipsburg St. Maarten. This week long poker extravaganza kicked off once the ship set sail from Miami, Florida. The organizers of the Caribbean Poker Classic chalked out a detailed and informative schedule for players with details of game timings, cruise schedule, event schedule, excursion schedule, etc.
