Booking a cabana at castaway cay

Our second cruise is 122 days away and I'm sooooooo excited!! I want to book a cabana but I know they go very quickly. Can I book one myself if I have gone through a travel agent? If so, where in the dcl site do I book? Same place as port excursions?

Thanks so much!!

Yes, cabanas are booked the same as excursions. They are listed under Castaway Cay. You can book them, or your TA. If you want to be able to book as soon as your window opens, you should do it, as most TAs aren't working at midnight (eastern).

Are you Concierge? The cabanas pretty much get booked up at the 120 day window. So, as a second time cruiser, your window would open at 90 days out unless you're concierge.

Thanks for the info! Nope, not concierge. But i have already decided that if all the cabanas are booked, I'm just gonna have myself a long day at the spa instead! I get to book at 90 days out since I'm only silver. My philosophy on this cruse is que sera sera.

At 90 days, our 3 day cruise still have a couple of cabanas left when we could book our excursions.
