Wonder if they charge extra for eye-candy?

We have a Cabana booked for our Nov cruise. I know that water, soda is included along with sunscreen, fruit, floats and the bike rental. I think I read that their is a button where one can call for drinks. Does this rule apply for food? If we did not want to go all the way to the BBQ buffet, does someone take food to the cabanas? A friend told me she thought they did, but I want to know for sure. Is their an additional charge to have food delivered? I saw videos where they show the cabanas to have plates and utensils.

no they don't bring lunch to you..
they will take you in the golf cart to the BBQ and bring you back to your cabana, but they won't bring lunch to you.

This is the view from Cabana 8. We were lucky enough to get it BOTH days were were in CC on the 6/29/12 Dream double dip. We reserved it again for our next cruise. We have decided this is the ONLY way to do Castaway Cay from now on! Fridge, fan, view, ice and drinks on request, suncreen, fresh water shower, uncrowded beach, AND John Stamos in the cabana next to ours!

I would do this over any other shore excursion any day.
Is that a cup on top of that beer or does the bottle come like that? Trying to settle an argument with DH

No, it is a plastic bottle that looks like a Corona bottle. It is actually a Corona Light, and the bar tender poured it from the glass bottle into the plastic one-- since they don't allow glassware on CC.

Just to clarify-- the bottle is shaped that way at the top. It is not a separate cup.

Thanks and thanks for letting us know that they dont allow glassware on CC. DH was going to buy the beer package with glass bottles but I will encourage him to get something else. Or get him a 6 pack of the aluminum bottles

They will bring you plastic cups for the bottles. They will also sell you the same beer package on the beach. Buy 5, get one free.

Curious now - that little bench in the corner is new! I see that there are still two loungers... did you also have the couch, a bench along the side wall opposite the fridge and four (maybe only 3?) chairs?

Wondering if all cabanas are getting refurbed/updated?

We've had the same bench both times we have had a cabana dating back to May 2011, but ours was orange.
