1. The prize pot for the main event is now $350,000!

2. An Itinerary to die for!

Sailing out of Port Canaveral, Florida, Norwegian Epic will take you to the exotic island of Tortola, St. Thomas and Great Stirrup Cay. While the core reason for your cruise is for the competition, you’ll be left with plenty of time to escape to sandy beaches and pristine waters. Go ahead, bask under the sun in your own private Cabana in Great Stirrup Cay, shop in St. Thomas, or just walk the laid back streets of Tortola. This relaxing itinerary has something for everyone and is the perfect way to recharge after a day of play. Who can resist such an amazing offer that combines the best of both worlds of competitive poker and a great vacation?
