Yes. On our Serenity crossing cruise a couple of months ago there was a daily $60 buy-in with rebuys with 1 add-on on sea days. I saw on the current Serenity cruise that they are having a $100 buy-in tourney.

My last couple of cruises were on the Symphony, and they had at least a couple of tournaments on sea days.  They also usually have some slot and blackjack tournaments, but I've only played the holdem ones.

I've played in about 5 and cashed in 3 of them.  Finished second once and third twice.  They used to give some prizes (like shirts or gift shop credits), but now just cash.  I'm not a great player, and I never play tournaments at casinos, but I've played some low-stakes limit holdem at casinos.  I've found that maybe about 30% of the players are competent poker players, and the rest not so much.

 

I don't remember the buy-ins for all of them.  I think they were either $60 or $100.

Those are good results.. Winning makes it a little more fun but I just like playing. Not in too any other casino games. Thanks for the information!
