How come she tried to persuade you not to get a cabana?! Did she give any reasons why she thinks you shouldn't rent one?!

She said that renting a cabana "ties you to one area" and "there are only 20" and something about concierge & gold Castaway already having the opportunity to book and how "Abi will probably want to be with the other kids" and "Pelican Plunge is not in the same area as the cabanas" and I forget what else.

I was actually shocked that she was being discouraging and almost dropped the phone!

Once I got over the shock I asked her if she had access to see if there were any availabale at this point... she said no, but tehy do go quick and she didn't want me to be discouraged.

Maybe she *did* have access and knew they were all booked ad was trying to prevent me losing beauty sleep?

I guess I'll find out tonight... errr... tomorrow morning.

Map?

Can anyone direct me to a map that shows where the bathrooms, closest bar (gotta have those Konk Koolers!), closest shops, and Cookies Too are in relation to the cabanas? I'm just wondering how far the walk will be for the senior folks in our travel group.

TIA!

If you have a cabana they won't have to walk! Just page the concierge! He will take you in the golf cart or get drinks for you!

The concierge can help get food and drinks as stated above, but the restrooms are right outside the Cabana gate just past Cabana #1.

How much do you tip the concierge at the end of the day? We will hopefully get a cabana on Serenity Bay (2 adults) and will ask for transpo to lunch and maybe to have drinks delivered once or twice during the day.

I would say it depends on how much they do for you during the day. We tipped $10 per person since we only used the concierge to order drinks one time and he woke us all up at 4:15 to let us know it was time to pack up to get back on the ship.

Congratulations Wendy&Grumpy. I've been watching this thread for awhile and I was hoping you would get your cabana. It gives me a little hope for my own upcoming trip. My one question is how did you get it before midnight? According to your post time you posted at 11:40PM. Or is my message board clock off somehow?

Enjoy!!!
