you are not over stepping any boundaries by placing inquires and getitng info, and brain storming ideas Wink

Cool - don't worry I'm not making any commitments, just getting prices and here's the latest price:

Crown Plaza Hollywood, FL offering $179 plus taxes
Location:
Hollywood, FL [Resort] [url=https://cruisefreekforums.forumotion.com/javascript:PopupLHotelMap('24700', '4403039')]Map[/url] (~9.27 miles from Fort Lauderdale center)
Rate: $179.00 USD per night + taxes
Policies: Group must book rooms no later than 30 days before check-in. Group is
responsible to use at least 90% of group room block. Group members may
cancel reservations no later than 1 month before day of arrival. 10% is
required as a deposit. These policies are specific to your group request as determined by the hotel.
Comments: Thank you for including the NEW Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach Hotel in
your search for accommodations in October 2009. If this a one night
stay on a Friday we would like to host a portion of the block but am
open to increasing the room block if it is a two night stay and
potentially hosting a full block of 75 rooms.
Is it possible to provide me with your phone number or email address as
I would like to contact you to provide you with additional information
regarding our property, event space, menus, etc for the pre-cruise
party. Our outdoor space would be the ideal setting for such an event
or the Waterway Pavilion.
Our property is just miles form Port Everglades as well as the
Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale International Airport which makes us the
perfect site to host your group.

Wow, you guys are really moving full steam ahead with the planning - this is great! Excellent job of getting preliminary prices for us Dr. Donna, much appreciated. This way we can all get a feeling for costs.

How about if we have some type of door prize or door prizes to encourage people to attend the pre-cruise party. I was going suggest on-board credit but, after checking the gift certificates they have to be redeemed 10 days prior to sailing: https://www.royalcaribbeancertificates.com/

Any other ideas?

I think that's a super idea but, what we COULD do is pre-order a few door prizes right from Royal Caribbean:
http://www.shopgiftsandgear.com/

Maybe a Luxury Robe as first prize:
http://www.shopgiftsandgear.com/product.asp?cat=4&pid=465&str=1

A Beach Towel as second prize:
http://www.shopgiftsandgear.com/product.asp?cat=2&pid=400&str=1

And a Royal Caribbean logo throw away camera for third prize:
http://www.shopgiftsandgear.com/product.asp?cat=6&pid=20250&str=1

Well you get the idea but, I think door prizes are an excellent suggestion!

Excellent suggestions! I think a few door prizes will certainly encourage people to attend the pre-cruise party

I think the door prize idea is a good one, we should follow up with it and I think you've picked out some good prizes Robyn, well done!

Since everyone is voting that they want music with the party. What should we do? I'm thinking a DJ with a good mix for all age groups.

I am sending out requests to DJ's for pricing so we can have a ball park figure for that as well.

That's great! That means if we get 100 people to attend, it's only $6 per person for entertainment! DocDance

Joe,

Depends on the DJ - probably 1/3 to 1/2 upfront (nonrefundable) and the balance at the party. Tina (Admin) and I will have to put together all the costs, figure out what's nonrefundable, etc. and come up with a final per person group price structure.

I have another idea - how about a contest to see how fast the Inaugural of Genesis sells out?

Another question - Susan - can we still form our own group even if Royal Caribbean doesn't have "official" group space on the Inaugural for Genesis? I think we'd all like to meet up regardless - am I right everyone?

Absolutely!! We would definitely arrange a gathering onboard, and we'd figure out a way to do some "group" amenities even if we don't have a group that RCCL recognizes as such. ;-)
