You will enjoy your day so much more. You'll see. You won't be sorry.

It's true that they are booked on a first come first serve basis. However, when we booked one there were many that were empty. If you're not concierge you can only book at the shore excursion desk.

Thank you so much for the information. How many cabanas are there? It would be really neat to get one but I'm not holding my breath. I have the worst luck! LOL

There are 17 cabanas on the family beach; 3 or 4 on the adult beach. This weekend, Nov 13th, was the first weekend all were sold, according to the Concierge at CC. He also said that they would soon be available to book online and he expected they would all sell quickly. So, keep an eye out for the online booking.

Thanks for the update! No Flying Dutchman, the Magic's falling apart, and now no cookie dough icecream. What is this world coming to??? (Just kidding!)

I sure hope we are able to get one for our March 5th sailing. We aren't conceirge so hoping they don't sell out before we get on board. It's the only shore excursion we are planning on doing.

I've seen those. Since the poster I quoted mentioned that she had just gotten back, I wanted to know if she had any new pictures.

would love to see and aerial shot with cabin #s as we will probably need two with our entourage!!!! wondering which 2 we should ask for/be waitlisted for. We don't want too far from bathrooms or Cookie's too. I guess the cabanas don't have 'facilities' is that right??? Was hoping but I guess not.

We have #2 & #3 reserved for our Dec cruise and I was told that they are close to Cookie's Too and the bathrooms. No, there are no 'facilities' in the cabanas, just a freshwater shower.

I checked on availability when I got on board this weekend (Nov 13) and they were available so have no fear if you want one, just act early.

The flying dutchman was in a dock on the other side of the ship being reburished.

VERY disappointed about not having the cookie dough ice cream!!! The machine is even gone leaving me to believe it won't be back anytime soon
