I have not heard that to be the case. It could rain all day and no refund. If they ever did, it would certainly be the exception and not the rule. But IF there is severe lightning that would endanger guests and they find it necessary to order them to return to the ship for their own safety, THEN they would be likely to credit a partial refund, depending on how much time was left. If the ship docks at CC and they do not force you to leave the island early, don't expect any refund for weather. If the ship is unable to dock, obviously you will not be charged for a cabana.

I have had a cabana during rain and there was no refund. I have also had one when it was only like 65 degrees, therefore too chilly to really be outside, and no refund. They will ONLY refund if they can't dock or if they ask you to leave the beach for safety reasons. If you think the weather isn't going to be in your favor I suggest you cancel.

I tried to search for my answer but didnt see it. I was able to book FB cabana #3 for our upcoming cruise. We are a large party and I was envisioning just the moms and dads being registered to the cabana since the kids will want to be on the beach all day. This way the parents can take turns getting out of the sun. Is the beach in front of the cabanas roped off so the kids can't be there unless registered or will they be able to go there, just not up to the cabana? Or will they need to stay over towards pelican plunge? How far is that?

Also, do babies (6 months) count as one of the guests?

Thanks!

I'm so excited I was able to snag a cabana since I'm just a silver cc member.

Yes infants do count -both for the cost and for the # of people allowed in the cabana. And yes, the area is separated from the main beach so not only would you be unable to keep an eye on your kids,they would not be permitted to come down the beach to your cabana. All cabana folks are issued bracelets so they are identified by who should be there and who shouldn't. I have seen CM's ask some to leave the cabana area as they have no bracelets.

Anyone who will be using the cabana will be counted. You can't have tons of people in and out as they have to wear wristbands. The beach is for cabana guests only. If you have more than the allowed number of guests, no matter when and how it will be used, you will have to get a second cabana. You won't be able to take turns. And babies count as 1 person, no matter the age.

We had a 6 month old with us on our last cruise. She counted towards the 10 people max but there was no charge for her. We were told that they do not charge for children < 3 years old. This was on the Magic in February.

easy way to confirm - cl DCL and ask them. I am sure you would get the 'straight scoop"... the reason I said that infants would be charged, was that a 2 yr old (a year ago on the DREAM) was charged. Could be that has changed. 6 months seems awfully young to be charged $50

I believe its 2+ that is charged. Anything under 2 is not, but they are still counted as part of the 10.

You mean that if the 10 includes an under 2 child then the cost would be $450 and not $500? First i heard of that one.

The cost of the cabana is $499 for up to the first 6 people. If you have 8 and that includes an infant your charge would be $549 - the initial $499 plus 1 add'l person that is over the age of 2. No one has said DCL will deduct the $50 charge if the up to 6 people count includes an infant.

If you have 10 people over age 2 then your total cost would be $649 not $499. DCL charges $50/person over the included 6 people. This is for the Family Beach cabanas.

Exactly... the price is AT LEAST $499 on the FB no matter who is in it. The extra people charges come after.

Are all of the cabanas the same? I know they're in different locations, closer or farther away from this or that, but as for the size and amenities, aren't they all the same?
