The base price is for four people and is somewhere near the $250 range, maybe a little less. They charge extra for additional people, which I'd assume is $60-$75. Not sure if infants count against the headcount.
According to the Carnival website you can only book these aboard the ship. I do know they have very few of them (like maybe less than a dozen cabanas).
I did this once and vowed to tell others not to...because it was SO WONDERFUL I didn't want them to be booked when I wanted to do this again!
I think it was about $200 for 4 and then extra for additional people (so they supply more drinks), but they don't really care how many people hang out in the cabana. They're pretty solid structures with a fan and air conditioner, table with 4 chairs and two lounge chairs. They supply sodas and/or water, veggies and dip, chips and salsa, and fruit. There is also snorkel equipment you can use.
I rented cabanas mainly because my 80 yr old parents were with us, and I thought it would be miserable for them on the beach in a chair all day. With two infants, I think the cabana would be ideal - comfortable and out of the sun.
I was with a large group and the biggest complaint was that some of them booked shore excursions all day and didn't get to enjoy the beach and cabanas.
Hi IsabellaSM, welcome to Cruise-Chat. I have friends that wouldn't be without a cabana, they loved them. I just can't justify the price or air conditioning on a beach However, I do think with older people or children involved, it's probably a great idea. Thank you so much for sharing your information. We hope to see you on board more often. Best wishes and once again, welcome aboard!
I had the yellow one about three weeks ago and this is first class all the way. Sun when you want it and the most comfortable lounge chairs. Chips and dip with fruit and a refrigerator full of soada and water. Two hammocks to choose from and a great view. That is one beautiful island. The sand was incredible.
Hi meijk, welcome to Cruise-Chat. The pina colada will be a charge, but they bill it to your cabin via the sign and sail card. The bar-b-que they have on the island is free. It will not be far to walk to the bar or to the buffet lines. Half Moon Cay is a beautiful private island. Congratulations on your up-coming cruise! Best wishes and once again, welcome aboard!
