Yes, there is a rope dividing the area.

We were also able to get extras in November without any problems. We probably had our 4 diet cokes refilled 3x.

The restricted beach and swimming area (if enforced) is what makes the Cabana rental appealing and will probably be one of the main selling points once the Dream starts bringing 4000 passengers to CC. It's worth every penny to me to know that I have a reserved sanctuary away from the crowds... especially the chair and hammock hogs.

We are going in early February - but now I am starting to hear that there is a good chance that you wont even be able to really enjoy CC as the water will be too cold for swimming.........so if that is true then is it really worth spending $500 on a cabana when we might spend the day on teh ship!

All of our last 8 Disney Cruises were in February. Some were cooler than others, but we always spent the day on the island, and got in the water.

I can only think of twice the water was what we (as residents of Arizona) would consider somewhat cold, but after you dive in and get used to it, it was fine.

Our next cruise is Feb 2011. Its also the least expensive time to cruise as well. (well, thats not in the hurricane season)

Cabanas available for 2/24 Dream cruise?

Does anyone know if there are any cabanas still available for the 2/24 cruise? I'm not concierge so I need to wait until we're on board to reserve one.

Cabanas 4 and 5 are close together, they use the same path to the beach. We were in cabana 4.

They give you one pitcher of alcoholic punch with the cabana (rum), and one pitcher of non-alcoholic punch, a bowl of fruit, and a fully stocked fridge of bottles of water and pop. Also some cool damp towels, a pile of nice fluffy white towels, ambient music, ceiling fan, and a safe. There's also a curtain for a little changing area.

Also - a basket with bags of chips and granola bars, a basket with two bottles of sunscreen, and a basket with some sand toys.

We loved the cabanas!

Yes. Kinda... you get a pitcher of a punch which has rum in it I believe. It was not too bad. I believe you can get more if you want it.

Still can not decide! Have people been experiencing limited availability? If so, I guess I'l have to decide sooner rather than later....

The Private cabanas on CC are only being booked via Concierge level guests pre-cruise. They are $499.00.
If there are any left, and there should be, anyone can reserve them once you board. We reserved one for the 3/17 and only 6 out of 17 were booked already. Good luck, they look great to me!
They do NOT come with free alcohol,trust me I asked-twice. You can add that on when you board the cruise for an extra fee. They do come with Fresh fruit, snacks, water, soda, towels, cold wet towels for cooling off, Sunscreen, all beach toys for the kiddos, bikes, and many other “included items”. We worked it up to over $200 in rental items are included with $499.00 sticker price. It is well worth it to us with two small kids.

I hope I'll be able to rent one when we get onboard! Should we just go to the guest services as soon as we arrive?

I am in concierge, but it might make a difference for anyone on the Mar 3-6 Dream cruise to know that I booked a cabana today and the CM reserved cabana #3 for me. Apparently, the computer system assigns the "first available." Cabana number 1 is reserved for those who need wheelchair accessibility. That means someone booked 2 and I booked 3. So, as of this morning, there are still a significant number available.
