    thanks! I have about 4,500 photos from the 14 day Panama Canal and 3 days in Disneyland Resort!

    You'll enjoy the cabana and the cruise next May! Thanks for reading!

    I really think DCL should give me some discount for all the concierge I help them book! :) You're family will enjoy it and I'm glad I was able to help in your planning.

    The cabanas are really helpful if you have a need for shade - my parents definitely live in the cabana. When my sister and I do a cruise in December just the two of us on the Magic, we'll skip the cabana since we will be out in the water most of the time and can save the $.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    well after reading your trip report I went and booked a cat v cabin12516 for our cruise in Nov.2014. Ok now I want a cabana as well! So I guess I too will be up waiting to book one as soon as Iam able to.Im really excited about this, I had been trying to deciede on cruise date and what cabin, was pretty much hooked on a 4b and had thought about doing just a 4 night even though we have only done 7 night cruises so far. your trip report made my day since Ive been able to finally agree on dates and cat. Your mom and dads vow renewal pics are beautiful, what a great way to celebrate! Thanks so much for doing this report I really enjoyed reading all about your trip! and loved all the pictures!:thumbsup2

    DSis (Speedo) and I agree that we loved the Cat V and we like the starboard side - it's fun to watch us leave Port Canaveral, etc. from our verandah. Congrats on your booking and good luck on getting the cabana. :goodvibes
    We just got back from the Panama Canal cruise on the Wonder and had cabana #6. DSis and I decided we liked the cabana #5 a little better - there is a little palm tree in front of #6 that blocks the view, but provides privacy. It's minor and any cabana will be great, but our #1 pick in the future will be #5.

    Thanks so much! I am working on our trip report for the Panama Canal cruise now. If you are bored... And have a great trip in Sept - a good time to get away!:cheer2:

    DSis is totally trying to fool everyone. :lmao: It is just the opposite. We like #6 better than #5 for the view. That being said, the palm tree they have planted does make #5 more secluded. But I like to see the ship so if we do a cabana again (very likely in the future) we will try for #6.

    Love, love, love your novel! I feel like I'm already on the 12th deck! 113 days to go until my eastern fantasy cruise. I was only left with cabana #9 so I grabbed it. What happens to the beach, access to the water closer to the public part, near #9? Are the bathrooms still close? My ds4 is CONSTANTLY going to the bathroom!

    Are life preservers available at the cabana?

    Are the golf carts there first thing in the morning to take you out there quickly?

    Also, the bicycles. Are there bikes with training wheels?

    Thanks for posting. I'm not sure I can answer all your questions fully. I know there was a thread on the cabanas that I found once on DIS that had a lot of information and photos.

    This last cruise, the Panama Canal, we were at number 5. It looked like further down (numbers going up) the water receded in the afternoon with the tide and there was little puddles of water but you would have to walk further to get to the water - closer to the family beach, but not that bad really.

    The bathrooms are near the food service area and not too far but further than at say cabana #1.

    I'm not sure about life preservers. You might have to ask on the cabanas thread or ask the concierge when you get to the cabana. The tubes and floats are on the sand by the water and sand toys are in the cabana.

    I'm not sure about the availability of golf carts in the morning. I have always either walked or taken the tram to the family beach stop (think this was the second stop) and then walked to the cabana. We have taken golf carts back to the tram at the end of the day when they want to get us out. :) Maybe there are golf carts if you are first off the ship, get off the ship a little later when it's less busy, or if you ask for assistance.

    As for bikes with training wheels. I'm also not sure. I bet someone knows for sure. I feel like they do.

    Do you recall what type of beer is served in the concierge lounge? The boys are looking forward to the afternoon smoothies, but me, just the beer... :thumbsup2
