We are a couple with no children. We tried to get a cabana at SB, but all that was available was family beach. We are used to the serene quiet of serenity bay, so I'm just wondering if it's going to be a big difference noise wise at the family beach. Any input is appreciated.

Hi! We are also a couple with no children and had a cabana on the family beach for the 8/19 Dream Cruise. We thought it was fantastic, you are still on a private beach with the family cabana so it is still pretty great. I mean of course there will be a little noise but it wasn't something we even noticed at all, it was still just as relaxing as our full day on serenity bay...if not more so! If you have any other questions I'll be happy to try and answer them

Thank you so much for your response! You have put my mind at ease! Looking forward to the cabana now!

Go for the highest number you can. The ones past 12 are very secluded without anyone swimming in front of them.

Does this go for SB as well, or just the family beach?

Do they take you from the ship to your cabana too? If so, do they tell us once we are on the ship where to go?

Thnx!

IIRC you catch the regular tram to the Cabana check-in. They then take you by cart to your cabana.

The beverage menu was not provided either time so this may have been discontinued or may just be a SB item. There is a drinks menu in the cabana and the bartender from the ship walks the family beach cabana area to take drink orders.
