Neither of our husbands are rainforest room goers, so it was the perfect match. We were able to get the couple's price and they just charged each of our rooms 1/2 the price of the day pass. You can buy couple or single passes. It appears from other threads here, that if you don't prebuy on the Fantasy ans Dream, you are stuck having to pay the higher price for the other stuff they usually try to upsell you for. I think on our 5 day cruise we did 3 rainforest days. It was a great time to get away from the hubs!

Speaking of planning, anyone else staying up late tonight to book things?

So do I trust Concierge will book my cabana or do I do it for myself?

Apparently, according to other concierge reports, they 'hold' some cabanas for concierge...Folks have had the opportunity to reserve one after boarding and meeting with the concierge staff.

They assured me that they will put in my request for the # cabana I want, and tomorrow morning I should have the confirmation.....I think I won't be able to sleep so I will get on at 12:01 am anyway. Ya, I have trust issues! LOL

That's awesome! Doesn't sound promising for me though. Really hoping to get one for my parents.

I just checked again, and only the 2 adult cabanas remain. There are no more family cabanas. I can keep you updated as we get closer!

I'm not stressing too much about not being able to book/check-in until July 14th, because we are not trying for a Cabana, not trying for Palo/Remy, and I think the one excursion we want should still be available. And if the excursion is not available, we will find something else to do. I'm just excited by the fact that if people are starting to book, that means we are that much closer to the cruise!!!!

What time does the booking window open? Midnight eastern on your appointed booking day, right? I used to know these things...

My husband was fully aware that kendzee(Barb) and I were "coupling" for the rainforest room. But Barb and I best girlfriends now and I don't think the hubby cares!!!! That's why we booked this cruise. He knows how much fun us girlies had on our last cruise together!!!!

By the way, we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary today!!!!!

Yes, you can get on at 12:00am Eastern time...So our booking window was Friday 6/14, and I got on Thursday night/Friday morning at 12:00am. Same goes for booking new cruises, I found out yesterday!
