Default Pre Let's Get Lei'd Cruise Plans

I was wondering if anyone has made any plans for a day or two before the cruise. Ginny said that it was too expensive to book a hotel through Celebrity, though I forgot to ask her just how much it was. Does anyone have any information on the pre-cruise through Celebrity? Has anyone made or considered any plans for a couple of days before the cruise? Does anyone know of a good place to stay?

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Sherry -

This was posted in another section (People -> cruisemates cruises). I think it applies:

*Hilton Hawaiian Village
Author:*Kuki*(---.cg.shawcable.net)
Date:***11-14-01 20:59

We've negotiated a group rate for CruiseMates at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, in Honolulu for anyone going on the CruiseMates Let Get Lei'd cruise.

The Hawaiian Village is one of the most oustanding properties in the islands. Truly a first class hotel, and right on Waikiki Beach. And we've got it for $160/night per ROOM for anyone planning a few pre night, or two, or three in Honolulu.

In a day or two the contracts should be in, then those who want to book will be able to call the Hilton toll free number and book direct.

Regards,
Kuki

Sherry... Theresa copied the right post. I still havent got the contracts, that's why I havent posted more. They must have mailed them rather than fax.
I've stayed at the Hawaiian Village before. Its just fabulous!
We're hoping to do 3 pre nights.

Regards,
Kuki

Sherry,
The Hilton Hawaiin Village Resort is a five star and has been reserved for the Let's Get Lei'd Group Cruise on the Summit 5/13/02. The price is $160.00 per room and not per person per night. What a deal!!!!!!! Just call Hilton's toll free number and let them know that you're with the Cruisemate Group and you'll get this fabulous deal.

Happy Cruising!
Ginny

I just got off the phone with the Hilton Hawaiian Village and they said they had no information about our group. I had them look under Cruisemates and then out of desparation, I actually said we're calling the trip the Let's Get Lei'd trip and that gave her a good laugh. But as of this minute nobody at the Village knew anything about us or the $160/night rate.

Thanks, Kuki. Ginny said to call, so I figured they had the information. I'll wait until you say that it's OK to call.

I wonder ...

are East Coasters planning to fly straight through then chill out once arrived in Hawaii?

Not that "straight through" is actually a possiblity.

I tried to call in a reservation, too, and no luck! Now that I've decided to go, I'm over anxious :-) ! I'll try and control myself and wait for word from Kuki. I'm going to fly in on Sat. so I have a 2 night head start! Great hotel and excellent rate! I've never stayed there, just walked inside for a look! Susan will be cruisin'
