    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! :goodvibes

    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. :confused3

    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.

    Oh poo pooh: -- Went on line at midnight to make a cabana grab and it was a no go. There was only one left and it was on Serenity Bay....I briefly fantasized about the idea of DH and I with our Conch Coolers in our nice little cabana waving at the kids as we left them on the family beach :rotfl2: Just kiddin' -- I'd miss the little angels.
    So, spare me some pixie dust, friends -- I'm gonna keep checking with hopes that one pops up in the next few weeks.

    We traveled with 14 family members on 8/16 - including my 70 year old parents.. they were the main reason we got the cabanas (had to get 2 beause we were so many) and let me tell you it was worth every cent. They both commented so many times during the day how wonderful it was and how that day at CC was they best they had in a long time. I hope your family enjoys it as much as we did.

    I know this is posted somewhere but we are a cabin of 4 and another cabin has 6 ppl in it. Does anyone know how we link this up and if 10 ppl are allowed in a cabana?

    I believe that 10 people is the maximum. The first six people are included in the cost, but you will have to pay an additional $50 per person for persons 7-10. You can add additional names to the cabana ressie on-line if your reservations are linked. If you need to link your reservation with the other stateroom, you can call DCL to take care of that. If not, you can add them to the cabana ressie when you board the ship.
    HTH! :goodvibes

    So glad to hear of your wonderful experience! We have my parents, as well as DH's parents joining us, so our daughter will be good and spoiled by the end of this cruise! Our cruise is coming up in less than two weeks, and we are really looking forward to making some great memories! :goodvibes

    How can I add the folks from the other cabin online? I didn't see the option when I reserved the cabana and I'm not finding anything now either? Our reservations are linked.

    Not really. I was in Cabana 18 last November and just last Friday I was in Cabana 20 and Cabana 18 was open. It was originally booked but our concierge said they cancelled onboard. :confused3 HOWEVER... I will be trying to book Cabana 18 from now on. It is pretty much by itself and cabana 19 and 20 are close together and 21 isn't booked until onboard so 18 for me! I liked it ALOT better than 20! But I won't complain if I have to have one of the other ones! :goodvibes
