Coco Cay Over Water Cabanas

So there’s apparently (8) over water cabanas at the Coco Cay Beach Club that are rumored to be built. Just out of curiosity how many families will be willing to pay the $999-$1500 fee per day to use them? I am hoping to book one for our holiday cruise end of 2019. 

Not me.  I'm looking at the waterpark cabanas though as that includes the waterpark admission so it almost makes it a good deal.

I'd agree those look like a great value. Depends ultimately on what you're looking for in your day at CocoCay.

I paid $247 for a regular cabana for my trip to Coco Cay this weekend (fingers crossed we actually make it based on the marine forecast), and even that feels like a splurge although worth it because there are six adults and a 6 year old. That massive price tag for the over water ones is insane.

Not me that is for sure.  I can't imagine spending that.  I give KLA points for getting the chill island cabana at 247.  I thought getting mine at 449 was a bargain and for me too that was our splurge.  I can only see doing it under 3 situations.  1 I am going on my honeymoon/anniversary/special education.  2. I am going with 3 other couples and could get it under 1K (250 a couple).  3. I have won the lottery.

I would rather take money and put it down for another cruise or a heck a long weekend land vacation where they offer that option with your room.  My friend went to Jamaica on her honeymoon (2nd marriage).  Their room had an over water balcony attached to their regular outdoor sunbathing area.

I considered over the water cabanas. From when I booked, to my cruise (6/19 with Harmony) , I got sick & am/might be wheelchair bound & this would have been the only “excursion” I felt comfortable going on. But OTW cabanas will not be ready yet, so booked the Chill Island  Cabana. Want to mention that I found an **“issue” on the number of guests allowed, and have worked with RC Resolution Team and also with RC Corporate for 2 months. Resolution was not found & the excursion highlights to completing payment are still contradicting. I am mentioning this, if anyone is considering making the full payment & have friends chip in. Specifically 1)the excursion “highlights” state “room for up to 8 of your favorite people” which I took as myself plus 8=nine total. 2) the excursion “important notes” state “maximum eight guests per cabana” . 3) when you pay/complete this excursion it states “choose SIX people” . 3)RC Resolution team member Eva got back to me and stated it is “six adults and two children” will be authorized to use /be with me. We are traveling with 20 and it was difficult to pick& choose the 6/7 or 8 “ favorites”. Dissapointed that RC only offered a$25 credit for me finding the error. Hopefully other friends can stop in, but not stay. This is my first post, let me know if I should post my finding somewhere for others?

My wife and I are going in May.....I can buy the Waterpark Cabana for $400 and we both will get the full day pass to the waterpark??  That seems like a great deal!

@michellt    Personally if I saw a Chill cabana for a low price (449) I would book it just to have one on hold and than when the over water open up, cancel and purchase that.   The reason I say that is because look at how find behind schedule Perfect Day was.  I know for our cruise the chill island and Oasis cabana were sold out @ 4 months in advance.  I don't know which ship you are on, but for us we are on Adventure(passenger load @3200)  and the only ship there for the day.  If you are going on a larger ship or if 2 are docked that day they may sell out even sooner.

Hi all,  we did HOTS CocoCay on Monday. First time & last time cruisers, here is our little bit we can mention for our experience. HOTS docked i think at 8am & left at 4:30, we were in our Chill Island Cabana (#10 right next to rocks & farthest away) on Cococay by 10am. Ran over to Thrill Water Park before the kids/ crowds  came, went down 3 slides & it was Noon. Our cabana attendant did not want to assist with food( i have mobility issues& worked hard to not bring a wheelchair at CocoCay), drinks she was okay with getting, but took a long time & did surprise us with deserts. Since RC could not confirm the promised combination locking lid, location of cabana, or the speaker I arranged to get $100 credit.  We dont have children & are not used to being around them. We would have paid $1200 for an OTWC if built, to have a more catered experience. Our own cabana, our own tiny slide, bar restrooms& food area near us & not trudge through the sand since mobility issues. The birds dive bombing  people eating & pooping on picknick table sitting people was beyond disgusting. There are NO clocks anywhere & we NEVER heard the ship’s horn sound, crowds went quick back to the ship NO employees,  mentioned ship departing in an hour, so if you nap, bring your own alarm. PS floating bar was an awesome time(pictured), and hammocks are by the #30 in South Beach area.

I am going in April 2020! 3 couples total and we all split the over the water cabana. A bit pricey but with everything you get, it seems totally worth it! We are looking to relax more than doing the water park, etc. (they have that anywhere!) I thought, YOLO! Let's try something we have never tried before! It is vacation after all! With the over the water cabanas you get your own concierge to take care of you all day (they bring all drinks/food to you), unlimited dining at the beach club including all of the club's amenities (bars/pools). I will check back after and let you all know how it goes! :-)
