The parks blog had a thing on them. They actually finished one so that they could have a real life reference in finishing the other ones!

I'm wondering if they could put a pack-n-play in them. Dh and I want to rent a cabana so our DS can sleep while we have a great time - I don't want to have to miss part of the day to go back to the boat for a nap!

IMO the cabanas are a nice idea, but I do think that video clip makes it look like they'll be practically on top of each other. I'm not sure how that meshes with my idea of private luxury. Maybe there will be more seperation that it appears though.

We tend to be all over the island on Castaway Cay day, so I don't know that a cabana would make much sense for us, especially at some of the price guesses I've seen here. But I bet they'll be very popular.

Not so sure I want my butler wearing a teeny speedo, but it could make the day more interesting!

I will certainly be looking at these for our Feb Dream cruise. As long as we find the price to be worth the convienence and comfort, we'll be game. With two lil boys (3 and 1) and my parents traveling with us, it will be a great way for ALL of us to enjoy CC at once and enjoy some guaranteed shade and rest time for the boys.

I figure even if the cost is a bit more, split between my folks and us, it still may be well worth the cost for our family. Oh, and I will be back to "brag" if we do decide to and actually are able get one

Is the beach in front of the cabanas going to be private or will they have to share with other guests?

If/When there are two ships there, it must be difficult to get a cabana. There are only 20 available? Between how many people? It sounds like they could charge $600.

I would guess not private, as the whole point of the expansion is to make room for 50% more guests with the larger ships. Perhaps they will place fewer umbrellas and lounge chairs per square foot in that area. It would be unfortunate to pay for the cabana and still have to squeeze your way between jam-packed loungers to get to the water.

While I agree that privacy might be a problem, I believe that they will be private - so not sharing with other guests. Or at least I would sure hope so if they are charging $600! Can you imagine spending that much only to get there and find out three other families paid for that cabana too?

We just got back from CC, it looks like they should be done by July. They are over by the Teen beach(which is gone). They have done alot of work since we were there in Sept. The water slide thingee is done and by the stingray adventure area. They moved the stingrays over between the snorkling area and the Black Pearl. Will be starting a thread soon with the pics.

Nooooo...we're talking about the BEACH area in front of it being private. (At least that's what I was talking about)

There won't be two ships there at the same time.
