We're going to try to get it our second stop because based on the itinerary we will be on CC for 9 hours vs only 6 on our first stop. I figure if we're paying $500 we'll get more use out of it on the 9 hour day.

Okay? or should we request another?
Any comments / thoughts from those who've been there?
Cabana 2 is perfect, IMO. I had #3 two weeks ago and I liked being close to the bathrooms and food, but it's not close enough to get any noise from them. You will be more than happy.

I don't know if anyone has posted this.... if they have, sorry for the duplication but,

Serenity Bay Cabanas were $399 and Family Beach Cabanas were $499 on our 5 night NYE cruise on the Magic. That includes 6 guests. You can add additional guests up to 10 for $50 per person.

We didn't get a cabana but I hadn't seen this pricing info on the board before we left.

10 people in a Cabana? I thought they were pretty small. i Understand that you dont spend the whole day in teh cabana - but could 10 people sit and eat lunch in the cabana?

so you book them on Saturday morning when you arrive at the Port? not after you get on the ship?

I haven't booked on board, but I think I've read that you book them at the shore excursions desk once you are on the boat.

Our concierge guy told us they would refill the water for free, but everything else would cost extra. We didn't have to get any, though.

There are 4 chairs, a couch, 2 chaise lounges, and a bench, so technically there is seating for 10. Some would just have to eat with a tray in their lap, so it's doable.

I am just wondering if I numbered these correctly...... (EDIT I reversed the numbers... but I guess one is not visible?)

so is all of the beach in front of the cabanas restricted to cabana guests only? Right to the water?

Not only the beach but the swimming area in front of it is also restricted to cabana guests. A very nice benefit when the larger ships start going there.

How do they restrict the swimming area? Is it roped off or something?
