Also, what is the cancellation policy if another one becomes available in a location we prefer..Thanks...

I called DCL as I am unable to add DH & DS (in our 2nd cabin). I can see and select them online, but when I tryto continue I get an error message.

I was told this is a glitch that is being worked on and worse case scenario, if it's not fixed before we sail, they will be added either at the port during check in or through Guest Services once we're on the ship.

Guess I'll just keep checking!

I was in cabana 18 on my last trip and it was one in the middle so 17 had to be on one side and 19 on the other? I highly doubt they would put them out of order. AND... 20 is the last cabana which is what we have in September. There was not an option for 21. But... when I look online I see where they have 17 on the Family Beach? And it only lists 3 cabanas after that.. 18, 19, and 20? I know there are 4 cabanas on the adult beach? Am I crazy?

Here is a pic of the cabanas to our left... and we were in Cabana 18.


AND WHY IS PHOTOBUCKET BEING STUPID Ugh... sorry, this is right side up on photobucket! But this was our sign.

So where is 21? There was one to our right and two to our left?

We were on the 5/15 disney cruise and were in cabana #19. We had one cabana to our left (nearest the bar) and two more to our right. (if facing the caban door). Maybe they did a renumbering at some point?

Who knows? But where is cabana 21 on the excursion list? When I log in online I see cabanas 1-20 (minus 13) and no cabana 21? I am under the impression I booked the furthest cabana out?

i know all cabana's are wonderful.. but on the family beach, i know someone had posted on here somewhere that there were 2 that ended up have a fabulous view of the ship and the beach right in front of you.. and how far away from the cabana's on the family beach is cookies and the restrooms..

thanks in advance..

oh yeah, one more thing.. do you tip them when the bring you over in the golf cart and then after each time they come to get you drinks, etc. and then again when/if they bring you back to ship at end of day? or do you have the same one all day and just tip once? so confused...

Can you put the cabana tip on your shipboard account?

I was wondering the same thing. If the only cabana available was on the family beach when I got online, I would go ahead and book it - but would prefer Serenity Bay. If a Serenity Bay cabana then became available at a later date, would I be able to switch?

Although, the family beach is so uncrowded compared to the rest of CC that the family beach would be LIKE a private beach, lol!

But we're just two adults, so might as well save the $100!

"IF" we get really lucky and there are cabanas still available for booking at 90 days can you book more than one cabana on your reservation? We are a party of 13 with several small children and would really like 2 cabanas, but other 3 cabins are first time Disney cruisers so won't be able to book till 75 days.

Thanks.....

Hi everyone....I haven't read thru this whole thread but the title tells me it is definitely the place to find my answer.

I have a 5 night Dream cruise booked for August 2012. I was thinking of renting a cabana for our second stop at CC. Have I missed the booking window for the cabanas? or did I just read that you can only book 90 days beforehand? What is the cost for the daily rental?? (I read the first few pages but they were from a while ago and I didn't see the answers I needed).

Thanks for any info....it is our first Disney Cruise so I don't know much about extras.

If it's your first Disney cruise, your booking window for excursions and cabanas opent 75 days before the sailing date, so there is still plenty of time for you :-)

The family beach cabanas are $499 for up to 6 persons, each additional person up to 10 is $50 more.

The adult beach cabanas are $399, but only for up to 4 persons, each more is $50, not sure if the limit is 10 as well or lower.

I managed to reserve #6 for our cruise in Sept!!

I do have a question though for those that have had a cabana before. Does anyone know if it is OK to bring alcohol from the ship? We planned to bring some adult beverages with us on the ship but is there any reason we can not bring our own to the cabana?

I don't know if there are any rules stating yes or no. We just filled our Castaway Club bottles with rum that we picked up in Nassau and mixer, and brought those with us. No one ever said anything but it also wasn't very obvious what it was.
