    We had that same cabana in May on our May 18th Magic sailing. LOVED IT! Worth every single penny!

    Are the wristbands for the SB cabanas and the FB cabanas the same?

    We are a party of 11 (9 adults, 2 kids) and will need 2 cabanas. If one ends up on SB and the other is on FB, can we use the wristbands to visit back and forth? -- Suzanne

    would you really want to do that? serenity bay and the family beach are pretty far away from each other requiring a tram ride to get from one to the other..

    I agree that it would not be ideal. If it is the only option because we can't get 2 on the FB, then it's better than telling one member of our group that they can't join us at all. -- Suzanne

    does your booking window open at 120 days?
    if not, this entire discussion may be academic.

    when my booking window opened (at 120 days), the SB cabanas were completely booked within one minute after the window opened..
    the family cabanas were only half booked by the 120 day people..
    i haven't looked at it since to see if the rest were booked at 105 days..

    I finally finished up my post on my Cabana. I posted a few photos earlier but added a lot on the blog. I also uploaded a video of Cabana 19 Serenity Bay.:thumbsup2

    We are only silver, but when my booking window opened for our trip on the Fantasy in October, there was 1 SB cabana left. I had the impression from this thread that SB is often the last to fill up.

    Our group in not sailing until summer 2013. While I am aware we may end up with nothing, I was just wondering if we end up with a FB and a SB, we could make it work. -- Suzanne

    Cost for one day: $499. The view: priceless.

    This is the view from Cabana 8. We were lucky enough to get it BOTH days were were in CC on the 6/29/12 Dream double dip. We reserved it again for our next cruise. We have decided this is the ONLY way to do Castaway Cay from now on! Fridge, fan, view, ice and drinks on request, suncreen, fresh water shower, uncrowded beach, AND John Stamos in the cabana next to ours!

    I would do this over any other shore excursion any day.

    We had a cabana at Serinity Bay # 19 and it was worth every penny. My parents went along with us on this trip and without the cabana, would not have been able to stay on Castaway Cay due to the intense heat of the day. When we return in 2014, we plan on getting another one as it was one of the highlights of our trip. :cool1:

    Another fan of SB Cabana #19. While it would have been too expensive for just my DH and I sharing it with friends made it more affordable and more fun. An awesome way to spend the day at CC.

    I would definitely pay $499 if John Stamos comes with the cabana next door.

    Is the fan in the cabana single speed or is it adjustable?

    We have a Cabana booked for our Nov cruise. I know that water, soda is included along with sunscreen, fruit, floats and the bike rental. I think I read that their is a button where one can call for drinks. Does this rule apply for food? If we did not want to go all the way to the BBQ buffet, does someone take food to the cabanas? A friend told me she thought they did, but I want to know for sure. Is their an additional charge to have food delivered? I saw videos where they show the cabanas to have plates and utensils.

    no they don't bring lunch to you..
    they will take you in the golf cart to the BBQ and bring you back to your cabana, but they won't bring lunch to you.
