I have a question for those of you have been in the cabannas. We may have grandmother join us and although she doesn't need a HA cabanna, she has walking issues due to her feet that are always swollen and a medical issue. If we were to get one of the first 5 cabannas. ..how much walking is "not far" to the restrooms and Cookies Too? What about from the tram stop to the cabannas? Thanks in advance.

They have a golf cart that will bring anyone from their cabanas to the tram stop.

We were in #5 and it was like 10 yards to the bathrooms and the food was across from the bathrooms. They also had golf carts that can take you around. We loved having a cabana and will probably always try to get one from now on.

I broke my toe on our sailing and they were able to drive me to the ship on the golf cart. They did tell us it was an exception and they don't do it for everyone, but it obviously can be done when needed.

Thank you all. Her feet are obvious as they are always ballooning 3 or 4 times bigger than most people's. I'm not afraid to ask for her to get a ride back to the ship. I know walking to the bathroom and Cookies Too won't be an issue with it that close.

Hi Susan,

We've traveled with my elderly Mom who also has some mobility issues. She gets around fairly well with a cane for short distances. We have gotten cabanas 4 and 5 and as others have said it was very close to the bathroom and Cookies BBQ.

The staff that takes care of the cabana guests were extremely helpful. It seemed like they were always checking on my Mom to see if she needed anything.

We were also provided with transportation to the cabana and back to the ship as well.

It was a great day for Mom as she would not have stayed with us the entire day had we not had a cabana.

Hope you have a wonderful trip!
Mary

Thank you Mary. I didn't want to take the only HA room when she can most likely get back and forth to the bathroom just fine. I was concerned with the tram distance and not sure by days end with her feet at their biggest if she could step up onto the tram. I didn't want to leave her alone in the ship and have her miss "paradise".

Susan,
I know exactly how you feel! The distance to the bathroom from cabana 4 and 5 was very manageable. My only concern, and I have this concern wherever there are crowds, is someone accidentally bumping into her and she falling. She is pretty steady on her feet but we always chaperone her.

On previous cruises, Mom would only spend maybe two hours with us before one of us brought her back to the ship. Since the introduction of the cabanas, she spends the entire day with us. It truly is paradise. Even in very hot weather (August) she was very comfortable.

Mary

The shore side concierge pre booking at 145 days for a cabana was painless and worked 100% for us.. I received an e mail the day after my 120 day mark that it was done as promised.. (No one promised us but it was funny to read that.)

Great! That gels with earlier reports. I will get to find out in December for my May cruise.

I was surprised and happy at the confirmation.. Part of the e mail said this: As promised the following activities have been booked on your reservation at the 120 day booking window. (We only requested a cabana.) It was so nice not to have to stay awake til midnight to book being that I am usually asleep by 9:00 p.m. Now if they can just guarantee good weather for February it will make me never book anything but concierge..

Yes, they do.. I have seen people ask about 6 month old infants too and the answer is yes.. We are paying for a cabana for just my husband, son and I and it will still be $499.00..

It is my understanding that the little one will count toward the total head count but I don't think you pay for them. Someone will correct me if I am wrong....please!

Good luck at getting your cabana :-)
