Ignore the rumors that have been circulating, the 2006 O'Kelley Family Reunion crusie is still on! It was officially booked after the cruiseline opened rates for 2006. It is not too late to make reservations. Cabins are currently available at our negotiated family rate.

REMINDER! People who made deposits will need to get the remaining fees in before the end of the year. Otherwise, you will lose your original deposit of $50 from the $150 full deposit.

Additional accommodations have been made for those family members who may want to arrive a day or two before porting instead of flying in on the day of the cruise. We have reserved a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn.

The information for the hotel is as follows:

  • Holiday Inn Miami Airport West
    (305) 500-9000
  • Visit their website at: miamihotelgetaway.com,
    then click on the link for Holiday Inn Miami West


  • The hotel features a full restaraunt and lounge.
  • Mention "O'Kelley Family" for the following rates:
    • (2) Double beds or (1) King bed @ $72.00/night
    • Junior Suite @ $89.00/night

  • You may book your rooms now. The cut off date is 06/01/2006. The hotel can reserve the room with a credit card, but they do not have to charge the card.
    • Rooms have been reserved for June 21st & 22nd and for June 26th & 27th 2006.
    • Family members can choose additional days to stay before or after the cruise.

There is still time for more people to reserve cabins on the cruise. We have a total of 25 family members booked on the cruise thus far.

PLEASE NOTE: A passport will be needed for ALL persons in order to board the ship. Due to Homeland security concerns, a law was passed stating that you can no longer use just your birth certificate and I.D. Depending on your state, passport fees average about $80 and will last 10 years. You need to allow at least 6 weeks turn around time from the date that you apply for the passport. You cannot cruise without a passport.

More information regarding the reunion plas will be provided as we move closer to the end of the year. Please do not hesitate to contact me, Meloney Coleman at: meloney1@charter.net, should you have any additional questions.

I do not check my email everyday, so please feel free to contact me by phone. If you cannot pay the long distance charges. Call me and I will call you back. My phone number in St. Louis is: (314) 731-0827 or (314) 913-3136.
