Let’s Get Lei’d Five-0 – Book It Danno!

Written by:

For the past 10 years we at CruiseMates have offered from 3 to 5 group cruises a year to help facilitate members of our community cruising together; getting to meet and make great memories together.

Amongst our largest and most popular cruises in our group cruise program have been those which did Hawaiian Island itineraries, which we affectionately labelled Let’s Get Lei’d. They were so popular in fact that every few years we’d put together another Hawaiian group cruise. Now, responding to many members requests we’re pleased to have #5 in the series ready to go… It’s Let’s Get Lei’d Five-0.

On previous “Get Lei’d groups” we’ve sailed from Vancouver to Hawaii, as well as Hawaii to Vancouver, and LA. Those required either flying to or from Hawaii, which made the logistics a bit more complicated. Our last “Get Lei’d Group” was a return trip itinerary that sailed from LA (San Pedro) to Hawaii, and back to LA (San Pedro), and it was my favorite by a long stretch. It offers relaxing and fun-filled sea days both prior to Hawaii, as well as post cruise ,as we made our way back to the mainland. It also made flights much less expensive, and much less cumbersome for anyone living in North America. Therefore we’ve decided to repeat the LA to Hawaii and return itinerary for Let’s Get Lei’d Five -0.

This itinerary features 8 sea days; 4 while crossing from L.A. to Hawaii, and 4 more while returning from Hawaii. The sea days are when we step up to offer many “CruiseMates activities” (in addition to all the activities the ship schedules). We do our best to make our activities fun, social gatherings, where everyone in the group gets to meet and enjoy the company of others in the group. Some of the antics from previous CruiseMates groups will likely be repeated, and we always try to include some new “antics” for entertainment.

Previously on “Get Lei’d cruises” we’ve flown kites off of the stern of the ship; we’ve had team tug-o-wars over the pool; we’ve had target practice using water guns and spouses, we’ve had costume parties when it wasn’t Halloween; we’ve had ugliest aloha shirt contests; we’ve done dinner table team trivia; we’ve had some very unusual treasure hunts, as well as less “Kuki” activities such as gift exchanges, door decorating contests, cocktail parties, bridge tours, mini golf tournaments, group shore excursions, etc.

On this trip we’ll be sailing on the beautiful Sapphire Princess, featuring one of my personal favorites, the 24hr. Horizon Court – a great place to meet to socialize over late night coffees or drinks.

If you’ve ever sailed with one of our CruiseMates groups, you’re going to want to join us again. If you’ve never joined one of our group cruises, you aren’t going to want to miss being a part of Let’s Get Lei’d Five-0
