Who wouldn’t want to know how to play bridge like an expert without really being one? Mel Colchamiro, guest speaker on the Regional-at-Sea cruise leaving from Galveston, Texas on May 11, 2014, wrote a book on the subject. Expect his daily lectures to be chock-full of helpful tips and rules for bringing out the expert in you.

In addition to the lectures, there will be three sessions of bridge daily which include open and Gold Rush events for pairs and teams. This year we’ve added Knockouts and 199er events to the schedule. Regional-at-Sea tournaments are still the only place to win gold points on a cruise. As always, partners are guaranteed for this tournament for any session that you would like to play.

The cruise is seven nights aboard Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas. Considered to be among the biggest and best in the world, Navigator offers world-class accommodations, food and entertainment.

The itinerary includes stops in Cozumel, Mexico; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Falmouth, Jamaica. The price for the cruise and the Regional-at-Sea starts at just $999.
