Hubby and I have booked to go on our first cruise on 24 Jan next year and we've been looking at the cabanas at castaway cay.
At $400 for the day, is the price worth it for any of those that have indulged?
That's pretty expensive. We haven't tried them. But we've never felt the need.
We just try to get down to Serenity Bay as early as we can and snag a couple of beach chairs with an umbrella as close to the entrance to the beach as we can:
Umbrellas and chairs:
Disney has waiters trudging up and down the beach all the time who can bring you your favorite adult beverage. If you can get close to the beach entrance, there's also the Castaway Air Bar right there as well as the location for lunch that serves the adult beach area.
I suppose if you were looking for a truly extraordinary experience and had money to burn they'd be desirable but for the most part, we've been perfectly satisfied with what we've always done.
Hey, as long as it's Castaway Cay, that's good enough for me.
Tom (... it's heaven...)
I`m with catrancher on this.
I really don`t see the point of hiring a cabana unless you are really unsociable [or a film star ]
I have always managed to find a good spot at Serenity Bay with an umbrella for shade and very attentive waiters to ply me with drinks so I would much rather keep the $400 in my wallet.
They're really not that bad. Lord knows, I've tried quite hard to go broke on them and haven't managed it yet.Originally Posted by britchick, post: 280403

Hi Sue, I'm sure you will be fine, make sure you get there early though to secure the best spots. Unless you want to spend the extra and have a bit more privacy and a ceiling fan? Some people think its a waste of money because there's loads to do but I couldn't spend 8 hours in the water I don't think! Have you been before?Originally Posted by Suebeattie, post: 280405
