Craps Cruise

Nothing Says Loving like Craps and Cruising Valentines Week – February 10 – 17, 2019

Ever since the popularization of poker cruises many years ago the gang here at Axis Power Craps has kicked around the idea of promoting a Craps Cruise.  In 2019, thanks to our partners at URComped.com, we’re making that dream come true.

Make you plans NOW to join us on one of the world’s largest cruise ships, Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas as we cruise the Eastern Caribbean.  We embark from Port Canaveral, Florida with ports of call in Nassau, Bahamas, St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands, and St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles.  Along the way you’ll have three great days at sea to explore all the Oasis of the Seas has to offer, the ship’s Royal Promenade lined with shops like Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Starbucks. You’ll discover features such as a Central Park, containing more than 12,000 live plants, and an innovative design that has two large interior areas open to the sky.  There’s plenty of room for fun in the sun, spas, health clubs and much more.  And don’t forget the Casino Royale!  After all, it wouldn’t be a Craps Cruise without plenty of hot action in the pits.

Not quite up to speed on your craps game.  Heavy of Axis Power Craps will be offering a three hour supplemental craps seminar early in the cruise for those of you who need to get up to speed on the latest winning techniques.  And if you need additional time on top of the group class – heavy will be available for private one-hour three-student classes on one of the casino’s tables during the morning hours when the casino is closed.

How do you get started?  If you are a rated casino player with comp offers in hand from land based casinos – or have comp offers available from the casino on any major cruise line – contact the good folks at URComped at www.URComped.com.  Once there simply sign up for a free membership, then take a photo of some of your best comp offers and upload them via their website.  Within a few days one of their friendly casino hosts will contact you with details on what sort of offer they can secure you from Royal Caribbean.  You could receive anything from a discounted cruise to a fully comped cruise based on your prior play.

When you book your cruise be sure to tell your host that you’d like to sign on for Heavy’s three hour basic class for $299 – and one of the one hour three-student lessons for $99.  The total cost for both sessions – $398.

If you prefer to book your cruise direct through Royal Caribbean you can still sign on for Heavy’s ship-board training classes.  Simply e-mail him direct at heavy@axispowercraps.com for more information.

Make your plans to join us on the Craps Cruise NOW!
