The issue is we had e-mailed concierge at 121 days and asked a "what-if" question about cabana bookings. It turns out that they ended up booking a cabana for us because of our "what if" question. Not knowing they did this we made a cabana reservation ourselves and then our second reservation also made a cabana reservation. We are going to release to cabanas ASAP since they are popular but now we are stuck trying to figure out what one we keep. We have 4, 7, and 9 any thoughts? I have seen the pics for 7 and 9 but any thoughts would be helpful. We were so worried about not getting a cabana and yet we somehow ended up with three?!
We had #7 a few weeks ago and it was awesome! Perfect view. We were discussing future cabana bookings and decided we would want #8 or lower. Any ones higher than that start to get by the volleyball court and then around the corner of the beach. 8 and lower are on the main beach side facing the boat. I'd keep 4 and 7.

Question

We are sailing june15th with a group of 10 adults and 2 kids. We were able to get 1 FB cabana and 1 sb cabana. We are hoping to get 2fb cabanas instead. if this does not happen does anyone know if the wristbands will allow the adults to access both the FB cabana and the SB cabana ?

Welcome to the Disboards

Great first question/post. I don't recall ever reading this question.
I can only hope you didn't read this whole thread looking for the answer.

Are you staying concierge level? If so I'm sure they will work something out. Like trade the SB for FB.
If not ... don't know. Maybe they will charge you for 8 at FB, 4 at SB, and then you promise not to have more than 6 adults at a time on FB. That's my solution.

You could ask folks on your Dismeet if someone is willing to trade a FB for a SB. And swap onboard @ GS.

I can assure you someone on FB would rather have a SB cabana. How do you find them?
Make an announcement onboard over the intercom. JK

No I did not search the whole feed I just browsed a little before posting.
We are not concierge level but thanks for the suggestions. I will try posting on dismeets about a possible trade.
Thanks again foe the help

Enjoy!
We have this cabana booked for our trip in August...thanks for the pictures!!

Anyone know how far it is to get food? My father is elderly and cannot walk far..that is the reason for the cabana (among other reasons) and I was wondering how far it will be for him to go get food or to use the restrooms.

Is the beach access closeby also?

If you push the call button, your cabana host will drive you to the restrooms and to the food area.

I know this is already past, but I'm curious what your experience was.

We had one last weekend (#8 on the family beach and about as perfect as possible) and we wound up not tipping, mostly because there was no opportunity!

The driver took us to our cabana, a host showed us around for a couple of minutes, and then we didn't use any service until we called to be driven back. We didn't order bar drinks, didn't need anything restocked, and walked ourselves to lunch and the restrooms.

We were still intending to throw the guy $20 at the end of the day just in case they were counting on tip income, but after he called for the golf cart at the end of the day he scampered off before we could do anything but holler "bye!" at his retreating back.

This is not a complaint, mind you. We didn't want to be hovered over. It just struck me that maybe tipping isn't a big thing for the cabana hosts. He certainly wasn't lingering or doing anything to indicate he expected one and you aren't given an envelope or anything.

I had the same experience, actually we had a different host in the morning than in the afternoon.

We tipped $45 for 4 people. Our host was AMAZING! We are very low maintence, but we did need him a couple of times. He drove us to and from lunch. He also took us to get bikes. Any time we pushed the button he was there less than 2 minutes. The icing on the cake was when he drove us back to the ship. He said we were the last ones left in the cabanas, and that was why he could take us all the way.

We were in cabana 20. Hope that helps!
