Missing Cabana?

I'm lucky to have booked Cabana 17 on our upcoming January 5 Fantasy Cruise (lucked out one random day when I logged in after they had been all booked)! Just wondering if any else has noticed that some of the Cabana numbers are "missing". For example, there is no #16 in either the booked list or as being open. Does #16 exist, or does anyone have any ideas as to why it wouldn't be listed as booked or available? I'm just curious.

It might be the accessible cabana. I think it's only booked onboard.

I thought #1 was the accessible one.

I think the concierge team keeps one or two out of regular inventory for their guests. They get released into regular inventory later if no concierge guest books it.

#16 is held back by the Concierge team for Concierge guests. I believe they may also hold back one of the adult only Cabanas too.

I'm on the Fantasy 16th 2013 cruise and I noticed this morning 13,16 and 21 were missing. I'm trying to call and have been on hold for the last hour and 1/2. Thank God for speaker phone! I was hoping I could snag one b/c I'm stalking it like it's my job...but maybe it's a glitch if it's the same numbers.

13 does not exist. 16 and 21 are held back by concierge. I do not know when they release the concierge cabanas, so it never hurts to check.

Yep, 16 is always held back. I found that out while booking as a concierge guest. They don't allow booking that one in advance at all.

So true! We were in 17, & overheard the people in 16 say how lucky they had been to get it once onboard ship

So they don't even allow concierge guests to book #16 in advance if you call? You have to do it onboard?

Thanks everyone! I knew the answer could be found here. I wonder if they ever release #16 online before the cruise or if its left to onboard the ship? I'm lucky to already have one but I hope someone else here has some luck!
