Default Cabana Rental on HMC

Hello a few questions for all the helpful people out there! There are 4 of us travelling together, is the cabana rental on HMC the same price for 2-4 people...I think that's how I read it. Next is the Butler upgrade $270 on top of the $219? And lastly why are there different color Cabana rentals,as the majority of them offer the same amenities for the same price? Thanks in advance, Anne Lee

Just booked the pink cabana for our 11-9 cruise on Prinsendam. The cost of $219 is for 1 - 4 persons using the cabana. There is a supplement for each additional person. If you want to book a cabana for 4 persons, only 1 of your party has to make the reservation.

The colors are just there to identify the individual cabanas (I guess it sounds nicer than have them numbered like "I would like to book cabana no. 5...).

I think the butler service is also a surcharge, so you pay $219 for the cabana plus $270 for the butler...

Hi Anne Lee, I was on the Oosterdam Last Feb., Had such an incredible time on such an incredible ship I booked a week on the Westerdam This Feb. My trip this year includes HMC and I had a lot of the same questions you have. I was on another websites board yesterday, and a Fine member named Texkat answered a question not only in words, but with pictures. I'm sure he will not mind me posting them here, since I gave him the credit and all. From what I gather, the butler service is so expensive, because not only do they escort you from the ship to your cabana carrying all four peoples belongings, but they also serve you a complete lunch including salads and deserts, and stay close by to serve your cabana only. They will get you anything you desire from the bar (included), and arrange any other on Island activities you wish to do. This of course is second hand info that I gathered on the other message board, so if someone out there knows different please share. from the pictures taken from the boat of all the cabanas, they explain that the Orange, Turquise, Skyblue, Taupe, and blue are the closest to the restrooms and restuarants, but have a more crowded beach area around them. With the Pink, Purple, Yellow, and Green are further away from the facilities, but also further away from the crowds. (a little more romantic and private). I'm planning the cabana without the butler. I read some people say that HMC was the best part of their trip, I'm looking forward to it. Joe

Sorry, I tried. See the attached picture of the pink cabana on my first posting. They are all just like that one except the Purple and Blue (not skyblue) which are canvas all the way around. I am going to attempt to attach a picture of the purple one to this post so you can see what I mean. Joe
