Thanks.....
Yes!

When I got up at midnight to book our cabana there were only 2 left and I was too tired to choose right then - so I booked both!!

(I have researched now, decided which one we wanted, and let the other go. )

Anyone? For those of you that are cruising soon... do you see cabana 21 on the list?

I just checked... 21 is not showing up for me either.

Someone also questioned 17.. that one is listed as being on the family beach.

Cabana number 2

We got off 5 night cruise on the Dream on Friday. We had cabana number 2 for both our days at CC and it was amazing. Really good location - any questions, just ask!

Glad you had an amazing time! If you could have only had the cabana for one stop, which would you have picked an why? We have the cabanas booked for both our stops but have decided to only use one of the days. Thank you!

I would probably choose the second stop. There is so much to do on the island and you will probably want to explore more onyour first visit. The cruise is quite tiring as there is so much to do and by the time of your second visit you may want to relax a little and the cabana is the perfect place for that! Also it will give you something to look forward to and I suspect if you had one onthr first visit you would be wanting to get back on the second time!! Either way you will love it!

Thank you! That's exactly what DH and I were thinking.

That was me questioning 17? I was in 18 in November and there was a cabana on each side of me so I am confused as to where 21 is? And if 17 is on the family beach then do they go out of order? And I booked 20 for our Magic Cruise in September and assumed I was the last cabana?

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.
Thank you for the info...I just booked the cruise a few weeks ago and thought I might have already missed the booking window. We are going with another family so perhaps we can split the cost.

Maybe the cabana on one side of you was the massage cabana for the open air massages? Isn't that on Serenity Bay as well? Anyone?

Beware of computer glitch booking cabanas!

I wasn't even interested in booking a cabana but my checkin opened last week and I started surfing around. To my surprise I noticed the cabanas still available when I was exploring excursions. Long story short, I booked cabana 19 on serenity bay and now I'm so excited!!!

The warning is because even though my cruise plans confirms that I have cabana 19 booked for Oct. 29, it still appears as available to book. I waited overnight and then checked again, still there. I called DCL and the response was "oh, is that happening again...." It has been 2 days now and cabana 19 is still showing as available to book for the day I have it. DCL assured me that they are working on it and I have the cabana but I won't feel secure until it shows "no reservation available" like most of the other cabanas.

By the way, someone wanted to know about cabana 21, it wasn't listed. There was cabana 1-17 on the family beach $499 and only 3 listed, 18-20 on serenity bay $399 because no private beach and no free snorkling gear listed.
