I think it depends on the concierge and the make-up of your group. For us, they would only take us to the tram stop where we could catch the tram to go to She Sells.

Back from our FABULOUS cabana on the 7/10 DREAM cruise. Had #12...it is definitely the last one with any kind of beach in front of it. Actually had a volleyball net in front of the cabana - you would have had to drag chairs over. Very rocky/shelly water area - wear water shoes. Loved, loved, loved the cabana and would do it again!

We are back from our 7/5/11 Dream cruise - we had cabana #17 and LOVED it! I have read some posts about being on the end and maybe not a good thing....I thought it was awesome - no one on one side of us and very quiet. No foot traffic at all. When we wanted to swim, we walked just a bit (less than a minute's walk) to the water. We never wanted to use the loungers on the beach...just used the ones at the cabana. Anyone who has any qualms over #17 should feel re-assured... you will love it.

Question for Double Dip Cruisers

We are on the Aug. 16 Dream Double Dip. We have a cabana reserved for both stops at CC but have decided to only keep the cabana for one of the days. Should we keep it for the first stop at CC or the second? Which day is more crowded? Does it matter?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Well you will be the only ship at CC both days so either way it will be the same crowd. However... I would keep it for the last day because I would hate for you to get it the first day and WISH you would have kept it for the last day. Once you give it up you will lose it to someone else.

We just returned from a double dip where we had a cabana the first stop only. We didn't do anything else that day but relax at the cabana. On the second stop, we did the stingray adventure, rode the water bikes, etc. It broke up the 2 days well. While I would have loved a cabana the 2nd stop, we were so busy doing other activities and enjoying the island, that I really didn't miss it. Enjoy!

We got one!! #17 became available this morning so we jumped on it. Was hoping to get one in the lower #'s but so excited! My question is...
We are sharing it with the other parties cruising with us but when I made the reservation it came up as "too many guests".. (we are 10 total)...Will I be able to add them to the cabana on the ship or should I all DCL?? Also, what is the cancellation policy if another one becomes available in a location we prefer..Thanks...

I guess I'm realizing how fortunate I am to get one of these...
This is my 4th cruise so I didn't get on at midnight to book anything because it just wasn't a big deal--was gonna be happy exploring the ship on Nassau day and didn't plan anything on CC. WHen I checked the first day for us, on July 4, there was ONE cabana open so I booked it--rather have it and not want it than want one and not have it. It is #12 so I was glad to read the previous poster that was familiar with this one.

Here's my question--did anyone have children that would have rather NOT had the cabana? I have two social little girls--7 & 10--and I worry they had rather be down closer to Pelican Plunge and to where other kids might be playing. Would hate to spend that kind of money and then still be sitting in front of the Plunge.

You do know 17 is on the adult beach right? It is a great location as it is on the end closest to everything.

This is incorrect. 17 is the last cabana on the family beach. There are 16 cabanas on the family beach but they don't use the number 13.

Adult beach has 18, 19, 20 & 21.
