The slide has been done for some time, but it is NOT open, and apparently won't be till 'the spring'.

Of course they will tier the pricing. After all the 9am to 4pm on a 3/4 day is so much shorter the then 9am to 4pm on a 7day.

If you look back through the post you see the $600 price was never sourced, I.E. it was made up. The buy-in will not be $600, closer to $300. The top end will be closer to $600, with upgraded food/drink & butler.

We are going on the May 30th 5 day Double Dip. We are platinum so we can book excursions starting January 30th. I know I have read that they would be ready for the 5 day wonder cruises, so being the first one, we will find out.

I'll let everyone know what happens.
I would not be surprised to see this kind of expense. With up to 2400 guest per ship, and only 20 cabanas, I could see $500 to $600 per day.

I subscribed too, since we are hoping to do this in October.

I will be curious to see the pricing. I would be a little shocked at $600, but who knows.

We just came back from WDW a few weeks ago and spent a day at Typhoon Lagoon. We rented the private shack for the day and it was $250 for the day and it included towels, bottled water in a cooler, a refillable mug, locker, padded upgraded chairs and a cabana attendant. Food and drink were extra and you could run a tab for the day. It was for up to 6 guests. The area was roped off a bit and each guest was given a wrist band saying they were a premium guest. There were some chairs around us, but we were in a pretty secluded spot.

Hopefully, it will be something close on Castaway Cay. We shall see.

That would be great to see - especially at that price!

The benefit I first thought of was having cover during rain showers. It poured on us twice last October and we finally had to go back to the ship. Having a place to our own that we could duck into during a rain shower would be nice. But, with everything else included, not worth more than $300 IMHO, and that would be a splurge for us. I might think of renting one for our trip in Nov as we aren't planning any other excursions and Castaway Cay will be our one 'port' day (we plan on staying on the ship in Nassau)

I found this on the other boards:
My husband and I just got back from a 4 night cruise May 6th 2010. We attended the Captains Corner session and asked what was the cost for cabanas at Castaway Cay. The officer answering the question actually turned to the Captain and asked if he could share this info as the costs had just been finalized, but not announced. The Captain gave him the okay to share...$499 for the day. There will be 16 cabanas on the family beach and 4at Serenity Bay. He said they would hold up to 8 people and the refrigerator would be stocked with soft drinks. Seems a bit high to me. We have a 5 night cruise booked for May 28, 2011 on the Dream for me, my husband, mother and sister and had wanted to book a cabana but agreed this was just not a great use of that much discretionary income.

Thanks for sharing the info here!

So I'm assuming $499 is probably the base price. Higher than HAL's $299, but not twice as much as some folks had speculated.
