The pic looks like it was during construction? There doesn't seems to be any divide between the beaches yet and no decks built outside the cabanas.

Here's a video of the cabanas on the family beach. Not great quality, sorry, but shows you the layout and you can count them down Just click to play.

Hmm...sorry. Not sure what's up there. It's in photobucket and I checked - it's marked as public, so everyone should be able to see it. That about as far as my computer knowledge goes though i'm afraid!

It's probably because of my phone access. I will try it on the laptop when I get home.

There are 4 cabanas at SB #18-21.

See my post above yours. We ran into the same problem, but we're able to reserve a cabana as soon as we boarded.

Just checked in as Silver for our Jan cruise on the Magic and there was one cabana available. Still cannot believe my luck! There is ALWAYS hope, even for first-timers!!

Congratulations! Love the cabanans.

And I agree that new cruisers shouldn't give up. We managed one on our very first cruise and two more times snagged one as silver Castaway. Granted the first time the cabanas were almost new and not as many people seemed to know about them. Still, a lot of persistence and a bit of pixie dust go a long way.

I have pre booked through Shoreside Concierge for our February cruise.. After reading these boards, I chose Cabana 6.. (Even though they asked if 5 or 7 would be O.K. as well.) So glad that I had this thread to pick what I think will be a great Cabana.

Was 6 just your favorite number or some great review? I don't even know which to ask for when it finally gets close enough. Maybe near the restrooms?
