According to a post yesterday the limit is 6 people.

My question is how will it be enforced and how do they monitor "visitors" from visiting family or friends who have one. Will they have CM's checking wrist bands or something?

This is just speculation on my part (although based on SOP on other cruise lines) but my guess is that you will be able to add extra people, although at an additional per person charge of course. But I'm sure they'll still have a maximum number a cabana can accomodate. It will be interesting to see what that # is. The cabanas don't look all that roomy to me, so if I had to guess, I'd go with 8. But as I said, this is pure speculation on my part.

Pricing is $499 as widely speculated. Includes food, snacks, water, snorkel equipment, floats, sand toys, bike rental, and private shower.
I emailed and they replied that they couldn't book them yet. I will try calling tomorrow to see if I get a different answer. Our cruise is in November so maybe that makes the difference. They did reply that they are testing them out and should be able to get me one in a couple of weeks.

I was told it was a presale and that they were only booking for two cruises in October as a sort of soft opening. My guess is they are trying to see if there is sufficient interest to sell them all at $499 or if they need to adjust pricing.

i wonder if it includes float rental and snorkel gear for everyone in the cabana or just one person. If you had six people that would mean just the snorkel gear is worth$150.

I think it would be for everyone in the cabana which would be for six...same with bike rental.

We are very interested in booking a cabana for our March 5th cruise. I transered my ressie to a TA.

When the time comes to book excursions, can I book or does my TA have to book it for me?

Will you be able to book these online like you can other excursions?

It says there is a host and mentioned food. Will a meal be delivered to your cabana for lunch or will you still have to go up and get it?

Someone from here emailed me some recent pictures and shows that the beach in front of them is private for the cabana guests. Hope this is the way it's going to be....that would be awesome if only cabana guest could use that part of the beach!

Super excited and hope I am one of the lucky ones that gets to reserve one!

I don't think I've heard anything about private use of the beach for the cabanas. I think that would take up half of the family beach expansion. Seems like a lot to devote to 16 families. Maybe not a big deal for the Magic or Wonder, but when the Dream and Fantasy start going there with all their guests....

Krista, I don't think anyone will be able to answer your questions till after the soft opening in October...I mean, I don't think DCL knows how they are going to work it till they test it out.

Right this minute, it is for only a couple of cruises in October, can only be booked in advance by concierge guests (who happen to call and ask about it, it seems) and remaining cabins will be made available on the ship. Of course, this info is about 48 hours old and could already be different!

I don't think that part of the beach will be private for the cabanas. That beach is where the waterslide (Pelican Plunge) is located and the cabanas are very close to the new Cookies Too food location. The cabanas are on a pretty large section of beach (several hundred feet long) so it really wouldn't make sense to block access.

If you look at *************** they have video and pics. It is most certainly a sectioned off part of the beach, complete with a wall.
The part about the cabanas is in the updates at the top
