I understand that you can ask the cabana host to get drinks from the bar; however, does anyone know the details of these "beverage packages" that are available for purchase? I'm imagining something along the lines of pre-paying for alcoholic beverages and having them waiting for you in the cabana when you arrive? Just curious though because in researching the cabanas, I haven't seen anything else about this.

Thanks everyone!

The place to find some Beverage Options is in "Gifts and Amenities page"

This link is the Spa and Beverage options you can buy and they will put into the Cabana for you. And there is the Normal Bar menu also.

On the link page carry on down until you reach the Spa and Beverage for the Beers etc. the wine and champagne packs are above the Beers.

There are specific Cabana drink packages that can be ordered:

Thank You to everyone who has shared so much info on the cabanas. We just booked our cabanas for Christmas this year. All of the input and tips made it a much easier process and decision. You are all Santa's helpers!

It is nothing against kids, but there are enough on the ship and when we are on CC we would like an adult retreat. If we can't have that, we will stick to excursions and roam the island. We don't mind being around kids, but we don't want to pay a high price to be stuck next to one family all day with no way to know in advance if it will be a couple with two well-behaved kids or at the opposite extreme, two couples with four screaming little ones. For us that would be a $500 gamble. We can live without a cabana and give others more opportunity to nab one.
totally get the point of view on kids - we're the same..

on this cruise, we'll be 3 adults in a cabana on the adult beach...

even when i was on the cruise with my husband and kids, we did our best to avoid areas with kids...at that time, DS was in the teen club and DD was already 18, so she could hang out with us in the adult areas of the ship and CC...

I had scanned and posted it after our last cruise.

It's floating around in another thread here somewhere!

i was also told that they would do it for me, but that it would only be at 8 in the morning so it would be better for me to do it myself at midnight..

My concierge email basically said the same thing - "we will work on it when we get in at 8:30, but just so you know they go live online at midnight a go very quickly "

Ditto: Concierge suggested I book it myself as well. (I'm glad I did as they dissapeared very quickly). We are double dip so I will have to do the same late night booking next week! It seems their capacity before we sail is mainly informational in nature. They make lots of notations and can help with rotations.. Having said this, once onboard I really appreciate the service they provide.
