I'll throw my thoughts in on the Cabana. I think it depends when you're going, if it's going to be hot. For us, it was worth it. I have 3 boys and one burns easily, so it was nice to be able to have a shaded area for him when needed. We have one for November, because I thought it would be nice for my mom with her mobility issues and not liking the sun. This way she'll get off the ship. We actually stayed out longer at CC because of the cabana because the kids didn't hot, sticky, and cranky! There's a shower there where you can rinse off as well. The kids enjoyed the bikes and the inner tube and floats that come along with it. We never used the snorkel gear. For me, the best was the iced cold wash cloths in the fridge It felt so good after being out in the heat. The kids kept hydrated since the fridge was stocked with water. For us there are 5 of us, so we were ok with the cost. If it was just my husband and I probaby not. In November there will be 8 of us. Those are just my thoughts. We are spoiled. If we had to do without it, we wouldn't be on the island that long.Is it worth it to get a Cabana on Castaway Cay?
I don't know about the Cabanas at CC. I've never gotten one, so I don't know from personal experience. My problem was that we took a 3-night cruise and we were moving and doing something the ENTIRE time! We had the legal ceremony the first day, the wedding the second day, then we took additional photos on CC on the third day. We were EXHAUSTED! We went to bed shortly after dinner on the wedding night, roughly 10:30 or 11 PM, then we had to wake up at 7 so we could get dressed AGAIN and take photos on CC. We took some photos on the ship until they let us off at 8:30, then we took photos on the island until it was WAY too hot and we were back onboard at 10 AM. We headed straight to cabanas for breakfast, took a dip in the pool & hot tub (hot tub to ease sore/achy muscles!) then we took a nap for 2-3 hours! We got off the ship with just enough time to get a drink and enjoy the view for a short time. We didn't even get in the water- we just stuck our feet in! It really depends on how you think you'll be spending your CC day. I'd made no plans, and I'm glad, because we really needed that long nap!!! The cruise was amazing, but EXHAUSTING!
I'll hopefully be updating my PJ again today and/or tomorrow to go over the big one- the wedding day! Eep! Just thinking about writing all of that makes me tired! Let me know if ANY of you have any more questions! I'd be happy to answer them to the best of my knowledge!
