Thanks so much for the info!

Had our first Cabana this past Saturday......loved it!

My husband said he thought it was worth every penny and made the day!
We were at CC 4 years ago with out one. We do not cruise every year, so on our next cruise in probably 3 years, we will get a Cabana again.

That is so exciting!!! We are booked with the TBA notes so very excited to hear from someone who has already sailed with it! Glad to hear about walk to beach, I thought I had read you had to go down to #19 and then to beach. Cant wait to see your pictures once you are settled. Thank you so much!!

NOT food." camp).
Great news about ice cream and soda machines and thanks for answering so quickly!!!

Does anyone else know if there is snorkel equipment on SB?

Thanks ahead for any info!
Actually, I have that same question about the snorkel equipment -- is there a place on Serenity to rent it?

And I got a confirmation from DCL that yes, we did indeed snag CAB 21 on Serenity. Still calling it Cabana 21 though and it is still listed as pending. Read somewhere that there is one cabin on Serenity that they hold for weddings -- so maybe this is it and that's why it wasn't listed with the other cabanas on the port adventures page Either way, I'm still stunned I got one on first night. I should play the lottery now

Not on SB. There's only one place to rent snorkel equipment, at Gil's Fins.

We are able to get a family beach cabana for our December cruise and I noticed last night that 21 was available on sb. I also noticed that cabana 16 is not listed as available or taken. I believe our cabana was one held back by shoreside because I only emailed them in the last few days to get it. I wonder if 16 is as well.

What sailing are you on? Hoping that SER 21 showing availability isn't my cruise

You can get grilled mahi at the bbq near SB in addition to ribeyes; however, the ribeyes are very thin and usually over-cooked.

[QUOTE=gometros;51928371]On SB, it doesn't make much of a difference. There are four and they're all relatively close to each other. And the cabana attendant will take you to the facilities in a golf cart.

Where is the Cabana attendant? We've been to SB a number of times and don't remember seeing a Cabana attendant. Is he at the entrance to the FB cabanas?

Cancel this question, found my answer. We got Cabana 25 on SB - guess that is the previous #21 and the farthest down. :-)

You got the best one on SB (in our opinion)! Yes, we had booked SER21 and it was very confusing when we arrived and they told us we had SER25. They had been renumbered between booking and arrival. But this cabana is not only the furthest down, but has the most space between the cabana next to you. The other three were very close, but we felt like we were all by ourselves. The attendants runs around in a golf cart on the path behind the cabanas. All we had to do was ring a button -- for drinks, bathroom breaks, lunch, anything. He was terrific and we felt it was well worth the money. The day we were there the water was freezing (coldest we've ever seen in 8 visits), so we really enjoyed lounging around the cabana, having the ability to change clothes and putting our stuff in a safe. The furniture was very comfortable. Only "complaint" was that the bike path behind us allows families through, so you heard a lot of kids. I was really surprised by that. But if we can get it again in 2016, we're going to try!

[Never found out what happened, but the attendant was telling us that he couldn't get the people in one of the cabanas to leave].
