Just a few great reviews is all.. (Though I have heard great reviews of others too.) 6 and 7 just stuck out to me through some really great trip reports.. I would honestly be happy with any of the Cabanas..

I guess they must hold #21 for onboard or last minute booking from Concierge because my Port Adventures for Castaway Cay day lists only SB Cabanas 18, 19, and 20. It also lists 1 - 17 on FB but no 16 which I understand is also held back for Concierge. (And there's no Cabana 13). Oh, well. I will try again on our next cruise which is a double dip on the Wonder - smaller ship - two days at CC - maybe we will have a chance on a cabana at SB then. Whatever - being on a Disney Cruise is the best thing on earth no matter what! We leave next weekend!!!!!!! :

I wonder if they don't do number 13 because of the bad luck associated with that number. I worked at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando and we didn't have a13th floor. It went from 12 to 14. Weird huh?

I can't imagine a different reason for omitting 13. It's commonplace here in the U.S., and since Disney is culturally a U.S. company I don't find it weird. Ridiculous, yes, but not weird.

We just got on the Disney Wonder 10/12/2013 sailing. We didn't get on the boat till 1PM and I went to Guest Services to see if I could be put on a waiting list for a Family Beach Cabana since they have all been booked since at least 105 days out. I had been checking almost twice a day every day with no luck.

The lady looked and they had three available

So we ended up with Cabana #14 woohoo!

So there is hope.

Not sure why they have all been showing as full online.

Wow, that's great! We're leaving 11/16 and they've been booked for us too. I keep checking, but nothing yet. I didn't think to check once I was on board, but I certainly will now! Thanks for posting and I hope you had a magical cruise!!!

Just got off the fantasy and had cabana #9. All I can say was it was amazing! There are 4 additional ones under construction now at the end of the family beach. The golf cart driver that took us back from the cabana said they should be ready before Christmas.

Wonder if they are working noisily on them when pax are in the neighboring cabanas. That would be unfortunate.

Did you here any noise while in #9?

TIA

I'm just guessing here, but I would think they would do most of the work on the days that there isn't a ship in port. Unless whatever needs doing that particular day isn't too noisy - dirty - smelly.

Makes sense Shmoo, thanks.

Anyone know how many days CC is not a Port of Call the next month or two?

I'll guess 2 - 3 days a week.

Well, there's at least 3 days a week that are taken (2 Dream & 1 Fantasy cruise a week). That leaves 4 days. So, depending on when/if the Magic or Wonder calls there will cut into that.

Question

Sorry if this has been asked before, but the thread is so long.

I got a call from shoreside concierge and we requested a cabana on SB. I see today that he assigned us #19. Where do you see info on DCL about the cabanas? I would have liked to have chosen one myself but could not find pictures, etc.

There's only four cabanas on SB: 18, 19, 20, 21. I can't imagine there's difference between them. I haven't found info about cabanas on DCL's site but a quick Google search will help you.

They were not working on the new cabanas at all while we were there. The golf cart driver said 3 days no ships on CC.
Also, if any snorkelers out there looking to do a cabana, you will not see much off the private beach area. You will have to go to the regular snorkeling area to see any good stuff.
I can't rave enough about the overall cabana experience. For the Fantasy, it was the last full day. My boys had made friends with other kids in the concierge area and they too had cabanas so it was like a group of kids that were long lost friends all playing together. So uncrowded compared to the rest of the beaches and water. Worth it for our family. It emphasized the private island feel certainly.
