Not sure if this is helpful but I get a "throw away" (basically a cheap one I don't care about) waterproof digital camera that does video/still photos and use it for beach days. Typically I've gotten very good results and I don't have to worry about sand :-D

I've gotten this model cheaper but that's what I'm talking about. It works great!

If your kids are toddler/preschool, you probably want at least a couple of sand toys.

Enjoy your cruise!
Since luggage space was precious, we didnt pack sand toys when DD was younger. Instead, we ordered a 'gift basket' from Shirley at The Perfect Gift. The basket was a pail and there were other sand toys and gifties and snacks in it. DD loved getting to the stateroom and seeing her gift bucket from Mickey!

Yes there are, but what difference would it make if the answer was no? You can't bring your own...

Because we have 3 children, one who is 18 months old. We have a pop up tent we can bring to give the kids some shade if there wasn't available umbrellas. Plus, like someone else already said....I like a big towlel or a chair to sit on.

Well, for us, the difference would be we would stay on the ship most of the day. I can't sit outside without shade

If I remember correctly there is a selection of them at the post office. There are definitely some in the cruise shops and I think there are even more in the little shops on the island.

Are there lockers to rent on CC? For those that take their camera on shore...where do you store it and other valuables when you are not using them?

There are no lockers on CC other than in the cabanas. I just leave my things by our beach chairs and keep an eye on them from the water. It wasn't an issue for us last trip because we spent the day at Serenity Bay and there weren't that many people on the beach so it was easy to keep our things in view.
