Can I bring a pop-up tent cabana for Castaway Cay?

I read the list of prohibited items on DCL's website. This is our first cruise. Does a pop-up cabana tent count as sporting equipment? It looks like one of those foldable fabric camp chairs in a bag.
How about a small hammock with leave-no-trace webbing to hang from some trees on Castaway Cay?

I don't think you'd be allowed to attach a hammock to any trees on CC. As to the tent, .

Do you really want to pack all that just for one day?

Well, the hammock is about the size of two coke cans. It's for backpacking and literally takes 30 seconds to set up....
The cabana might be nice just to be out of the sun, if they allow it. So...yeah, I'd want to bring it, even just for the one day. We're pretty light packers otherwise.

Thanks for the reply!

My initial reaction would be that both items are not allowed... I checked the Prohibited items list and neither are explicitly mentioned... but I would e-mail DCL on this one...These are two items I would have never thought to bring on a cruise...

Well, there are lots of umbrellas on CC. There's one like every 2 seats and about 4 or 5 rows deep from the water. I don't know that you'll really need your own private shade.

I don't think you'd have anywhere to put it. The beach chairs and umbrellas are REALLY close together. I'm not sure anyone would let you have enough space for a tent.

That and I'm sure it will block someone's view and you'll get complaints. Can you imagine if everyone brought one....so my guess will be no. But you can always email and ask.

there's lots of room on the adult beach, but then again, there are lots and lots and lots and lots of empty umbrellas on the adult beach and really no need for your pup tent...

There are also hammocks on the adult beach. You haven't said if you are travelling as a family so this might not be relevent.

We have one of those cabanas when we go to the Gulf Coast beaches here in Florida and although it rolls up tight and is in a bag, I personally wouldn't take it on the ship for CC for what can be a half day on the beach.

I actually don't think they would agree to it either but you never know!

You know, I don't know for sure what camera took this picture. We had a group of us traveling, and shared pictures after we got back. And, of course, I renamed the pictures when putting them in with my pictures, sorry.

OP, did you get any response from DCL? I would not have considered that a pop-up cabana might be banned. DS is 3 and we're all fair-skinned, I'd like to know that there's guaranteed shade for him. Also, a place to nap. We always bring one of these to the beach. http://www.onestepahead.com/catalog/...oductId=534648
