Don't feel so bad
We just did a double dip to castaway and didn't get to reserve a Cabana either day And i was totally bummed because I really wanted it. However, there was so much to do while we were there that I was glad I didn't get one. We rode bikes, did the stingrays, kayaking, the pelican plunge, lunch, character pics, general beach fun, etc. each day we got back to the ship
Quite happy. If we would have had a cabana I would have felt obligated to stay there and would have missed some really fun times with the kids (who would have gotten a little bored if we were "just" at the beach. Granted, my kids are just six y/o and we are from Florida (so they are pretty used to the beach) so your circumstances might be different. Now, if it were just my husband and myself - THEN I can definitely see the allure of the cabana! Have fun!!

We have been there tons of times and I just wanted to relax. But we are going in 2014 with the in laws and he said we could get one then

I've never paid attention to the Cabanas on the Family beach before. Are the set back and "enclosed" like the Adult ones where you need a band to enter the area where they are or can anyone visit you at them?

I have a question, if you can't get a cabana and you have children (i.e. no adult beach), is there anywhere you can go and get away from the crowds?

We had a hammock beneath some palm trees near the back of the beach at the first tram stop and it never felt crowded.
