Cabin Crawl/Poker Run
The cabin crawl will begin and end in the Red Lion Pub on Deck 7. We will run two concurrent routes and each route will include an Ocean View, Balcony, Mini Suite, Family suite, 2BR Suite and forward Penthouse Suite. In conjunction with the crawl will be a poker run. The entry fee will be $5.00 per person. Denise and her helpers will have a table setup as you register at the meet and greet to confirm your participation and collect the fee, please be sure you see her as you sign in.

The poker run will be a 7 card stud event; you will draw one card at each cabin stop (6) and the final card when we return to the Red Lion Pub. You will use your five best cards to make the best poker hand that you can. We anticipate paying cash prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place hands along with a consolation prize at the conclusion of the event.

Due to the extremely large size of the group, we would appreciate your prompt arrival at the event start so as not to take up too much of anyone’s day and allow us to finish on a timely basis. At that time, we will ask for group leader volunteers who will be responsible for keeping their group together along the route and insuring that each group moves forward on a timely basis from cabin to cabin. You will have the option of using either elevators or stairs as you move about the ship, group leaders will be responsible to make sure everyone is together while moving about.

Our group is quite large and some cabins are close together on the same decks, please be respectful of our fellow cruisers and try not to obstruct hallways or stairways. We will have pre-printed route directions for each group before they leave the pub.

Win, Lose or Draw it will be a fun event that will allow you to meet many of your fellow cruisers, while at the same time giving you an opportunity to view some of the many different cabin types on the NCL Star.

See you there…..

Pete,

We'll get it to work, it just looks daunting because the group is so large, we will have all the organization done well before the event start. I think in this case all the advance planning will pay off in "spades"

Mary asked over on FB whether cabin hosts were to be included in the poker run. The answer is YES, the cabin hosts will go out with the first group on each route. They will then jump out at their own cabin, and later join with the last group coming through to finish the route.

Cabin Hosts...remember to bring a deck of cards with you for the poker draw in your cabin.

Denise will have pre-printed score sheets available at the Red Lion prior to the beginning of the crawl. Each person will draw a card at each cabin and have it recorded on the sheet by the cabin hosts. The reverse side of your sheet will have your route directions to assist you on your way around the ship.

Each route, the HEART ROUTE (RED) and the SPADE ROUTE (BLACK) will visit the same cabin types along the route, though both will have different cabin numbers, with the exception of the 2BR and forward Penthouse suites where the 2 routes will converge, these cabins are much larger and will easily handle the larger groups.

Everyone's final card will be drawn when we return to the Red Lion, where the winners will be determined.

How many participated in your group? We are organizing one (for the first time) and was wondering if each cabin will need a deck of cards. Did they have the option to buy an extra card and discard for an extra amount? Did they have the option to play more than one hand (using game cards)?

Ohmigosh, it was a lot. We did two simultaneous poker crawls. This was a long time ago. I can't remember how many, but more than 100. It was too hectic.

Each cabin needs their own deck of cards. Each player pulls one card, the host records it on the player's score sheet. Then they return the card to the deck. I would not allow re-buys or multiple hands. Keep it as simple as possible.
