Default Cabanas on Half Moon Cay question

If you have reserved a cabana when you board Carnival for the Half Moon Cay stop...do you get to tender on one of the first tenders over like the excursions get to....or do you have to wait a longer time?

Along with the "shore excursion" tickets for the Cabanas you get a Priority Tender Pass, so you can over whenever you like.

thank you that is good news.....want to enjoy the cabana for as long as possible.
I haven't seen them on the excursions....where did you see the $$$$ posted?
I believe the cost is $200, but I thought the only way to book it was AFTER we got onboard. Can it be booked ahead of time?

if you go to your reservation, it's not there as well as many others. if you do not use the your reservation and go to excursions at the top of the page. there are quite a few listed, but only use the $ as pricing, $ to $$$$

I wonder if you can book it ahead of time then by calling Carnival?
And does "Priority tendering" mean that we go over first....and that you do not have to stand in line for the tender????

We talked oto some people that rented a cabana. They said they wish they had got one farther down the beach where it was not so crowded. The people that were just swimming would come up and try to get the chairs, use their showers. I did notice the ones that were farthe down were just as nice and there were fewer people to deal with. It was like having a semi-private beach.

If it is a tour that is sponsored by Carnival after you have booked when you are on the excursion page there will be a BOOK EXCURSION button to the right of the description. For example my cruise in November I can book excursions right now on the website and it tells me how much they are and I have to pay for them now with a credit card.

How do you select a cabin? Is it first come first served? I did wonder about how to keep people from "helping themselves" when reading Kuki's review.

Sounds like you would almost need a sign that says "Private Party".
As for booking it on-line, it does not show it avail....and I guess we have to book it onboard only. Hope you can ask for a certain one....would be nice to be in #10 - #15.

the cabana excursion is not listed under your reservation. it is only listed on the opening page of carnival and that only shows the $to $$$$ pricing. nowhere under the your reservation were any cabana's listed for half moon bay
