Up to 6 people and $50 per additional up to eight I believe.

You can have up to TEN people.

Good luck at 75 days.

I booked our Feb 11th day at CC and there were still 4 left at the 80 day mark.

I just booked cabana #4 for our Jan 22 Dream cruise . I was so excited to see one available, I wasn't thinking clearly when I booked it and only booked it for me. I tried going back and adding my husband and sons (so I'll get wristbands for them), but it says there's no availability. I guess it's thinking I'm trying to book an already booked cabana, even though I clicked on Modify for my existing booking.

I'm probably just going to wait until we're on board to try to add them, but where would I go to do so? Guest Services? Excursions? Or would I be better off calling DCL?

The important thing is that you have it booked! Adding the rest of your cabin can be done anytime, no worries

Don't worry about it. It's booked to you so that they can charge it to you. You are entitled to 6 wristbands with the reservation (and can add 4 more people at $50 each.) You can relax.

does anyone know if it is easier or harder (or the same) to get a cabana on SB as opposed to the family beach?

Really hoping we can get one for our cruise in May

While there are 16 cabanas on the family beach and only 4 at Serenity Bay, both on our last cruise in Sept. and the next in March, there was 1 cabana left available for me on SB at the 90 day mark, also, on my 2previous visits to CC, SB was pretty empty anyways. I guess most adult guests on DCL travel with kids so they rather stay at the family beach.

Thanks Brandis

Both of our DD whom will be traveling with us are over 18 so we plan on hanging out at SB - hoping for a cabana.

You'd be surprised at how many adults travel on DCL without kids.

To those who have booked a cabana at SB before- is it worth it? I booked one for our 5 night double dip in March. It will be me, DH, and one other couple. Second guessing myself a bit...

We did one cruise without the kids and it was an experience. Stayed in the adult areas of the ship, dined only in suite or Palo/Remy ... visited Serenity Bay for the first time ever ... what a treat.

At one point we were on the bicycle path and came alongside a guy and his 2 kids. He asked us, "are your kids in the club?" We replied that they were home with the grandparents. He almost fell off his bike saying, "You went on a Disney cruise and left the kids HOME?!? ... you can DO that?"

We chuckled.

When we past him again he said, "there goes the happiest couple on the ship" We just might have been

My DH and I did a Western without the kids and had a blast. The only downfall was that we weren't able to dock at Castaway. It was DH's 40th birthday, and we were looking forward to finally enjoying Serenity Bay.

So, 2 years later we booked a b2b that INCLUDES a double dip! I am bound and determined to have at least one day in paradise.

We had one in October. It was my dsis, dparents and myself. If I had not just had back surgery about 3 weeks before we left for WDW and DCL, I wouldn't have thought the cabana was worth it. We booked it way before I had to have emergency surgery. It was nice for me to have someone take us to lunch since I had some mobility issues. But I don't think we wil do it again. It was just too much money for what it is.
