4) a small gap
5) cabana #19 then cabana #20 (these two are very close together)
6) a small gap
7) cabana #21

If you were looking to get 2 cabanas for your group, I would suggest 19 & 20, rather than 18&19 or 20&21.
Ok this sucks because when I was there 20 was the last cabana. 18 was the second cabana. No, and not second to the massage cabanas...

These were the two looking to our left (from the beach)




**We were the only ones on Serenity Bay as you can tell by the two on the left being closed up. And there was one cabana to our right (from the beach)?

Someone told me 21 is actually the first one? Then it went 18, 19, 20?

The cabanas in your picture (from the beach) are currently numbered #20 on the left and #19 on the right. (We had the blue #20 on Wednesday.)

In addition, there was one cabana outside of the picture to the right (#18) and another outside of the picture to the left (#21). I checked the numbers of all of them.

The blue one was the last one when we were there.
Here you can see all 4 cabanas.

**You can click on the link then click on the pic to enlarge it.**

We were in the second one (blue)? From what I see they went gold, blue, gold, blue. And our cabana was 18? They must have moved the numbers? But if you were in a blue one then I am really confused? Not trying to argue with you... its just not making sense?

I think they have moved the cabanas around. The way it was last week, there was one closer in from your picture and there wasn't the farthest one beyond.
The ones in your picture would start with #19 (yellow) #20 (blue) #21 (pink) and whatever is farthest away wasn't there anymore. There was another cabana to the right of where your picture is taken.

ETA: I looked through my digital pictures, but I don't have ones that show it. I did take a number of pictures while floating in the ocean, so they are all on the waterproof (film) camera that needs to be developed before I can share them here.

With this tread being over 1,000 post long the answere to my question might be somehwere, but...


Are the CC Cabanas blocked off for general booking on the excursion website? Currently on my next sailing it says that all 20 cabanas are unavailable. So I am not sure if they have been completely booked, or if they are just marked that way until we are on board?

That would say to me that all have been booked by other cruisers. If you had one booked, it would show as open, this freaks me out a little each time I see it.

There maybe 1 on each beach that is held for onboard booking, #1 on the family, as it is a HCP unit and I have read that #21 on the Adult only beach is also held for onboard booking.

Ah ok. Well if you get those developed I would love to see! I guess it doesn't matter! I have cabana 20 booked for our Magic Cruise in September and we are excited to have one again as I know they are hard to come by any more! If we aren't the end cabin I guess that's ok!

Castaway Cay Port Adventures should get you to the cabana booking.

They could be booked. They should be listed under Castaway Cay Excursions. You should at least be able to to see them blacked out if they are booked. Otherwise... it may not be your time to book yet.

On the "My Cruise Plans" page, scroll down about half way to "Reserve Activitis" and click on the "Excursion" button.

The next page will say "Reserve Shore Excursion - Select Activity and Guests" and will have a list of the available choices.

If it doesn't work and you're using Internet Explorer, try Mozilla Firefox.
