The WPT Voyage sets sail from PortMiami on March 31 and the lead-in to the ship's departure has seen many notable players announce their intentions to climb aboard and partake in poker's Spring Break.

From WPT Ambassadors AndrewNeeme, TonyDunst, LynnGilmartin, and Ethan 'Rampage' Yau to poker's comedic queens CaitlinComeskey and NikkiLimo, Virgin Voyage's Valiant Lady will ferry some of the game's biggest names on the week-long cruise.

PokerOrg's own Live Events Manager TerranceReid will take to the seas as well, bringing his first-hand reporting directly to the people. Between Reid and our Media Maven Aleeyah Jadavji, the PokerOrg presence will undoubtedly make a splash.

The King of the Dailies, JeremyBecker, hasn't explicitly confirmed his attendance, but might just make an appearance onboard.

MelissaSchubert, a key member of the Solve For Why/OnlyFriends Podcast crew put out a WPT Voyage roll call on Twitter/X, inquiring as to who else she'd see onboard.

LukasRobinson, contestant on the hit show Game of Gold, has seemingly outsourced his pajama purchase for the Pajama Party Meet-up Game - yes, you read that right.

It's all the fun and excitement of a signature WPT Meet-up Game, but with slumber party vibes. Players that wear pajamas to the event will earn themselves an entry into the drawing to win a $5,000 seat for the WPT Voyage Championship. The Pajama Party Meet-up Game is just one of many fun-filled events going on during the cruise.

Entertainment options galore

The WPT has prepared a number of non-poker entertainment options for sailors to explore while onboard, including comedy shows, DJ sets, and live music. There's a hybrid poker and golf tournament on the books, hosted by WPT's Executive Director Matt Savage, and a pickleball tournament hosted by WPT Ambassador Vince Van Patten.

“WPT Voyage is primed to be the ultimate package of poker and entertainment,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “Offering a variety of shows featuring talented performers, WPT Voyage has something for everyone to enjoy.”

The decision to commandeer the entirety of the Valiant Lady all but guarantees that the sailors boarding will come ready to battle and gamble it up on the tables. In a recent interview with PokerOrg, Comeskey told us, "This promises to be a poker spring break unlike any other - it's the first time they've taken over the full ship."

Book your own voyage

If you're feeling the potential fear of missing out, there's still time to book a cabin or enter one of the giveaways still running.

JoeIngram has seemingly followed up on his intentions to send members of his Legion on the cruise. Ingram wrote on Twitter/X today, "Moving forward on this...sending some people to the Voyage," and teased further details to come soon.

The Yard Foundation, a Chicago-based charity serving members of the firefighting community in the city, will run a raffle tomorrow, March 15th, to give away five cabins. Hopeful seafarers can purchase tickets online to enter their names in the running.
