One of my life sayings: "Buy now, think later.” 😉

I just re-booked my Thrill Water Park Cabana on Navigator Jan 2020 for $299 down from $499!!!

After seeing this topic, I went to our reservation on the Harmony for 1/26/2020.  We have a beach bed at CocoCay booked at $299.  It is now $199.  I called Royal Caribbean and cancelled and rebooked.

The perks that come with the cabana are awesome, but $1k is a hefty price tag to accept when thinking of the cruise fare, flights, drinks, other excursions etc.  I am thinking of our situation.  I know others will not have the exact same expense. 

Personally i think cabana's are a waste of money.  So you get a shade coverage, free water and food delivery service, for $500 and up. No alcohol unless you purchased the beverage pkg. I hate to sound negative but glad others like the idea. Here's why i see it that way..what you pay for a cabana, i can fly to our resort in Mexico and get just about the same thing.

I understand your point, but I disagree.  I like the personal space, being able to have food and drinks ordered and delivered it a great convivence too.

But if you can put together a party of 6, and were planning on doing the water park anyway, it’s pretty silly NOT to get the cabana for $499 as you get the added perks for almost free... or you could even make money on the deal, depending on what day passes are running. 

Hence that why RC developed this product, They know it was great for some, but not others.  It's nice to have options.  

Added comments-

I do see that as a great idea if you have kids or a group.  But just for the wife and i...i do not see it as a great deal.

Believe it or not, I am allergic to sun block. I have found a few that I can use, but cannot leave it on all day. Plus I LOVE the sun, so any bit of guaranteed shade is a  help for me. Otherwise, at the normal price I would have to think about it, but a huge discount, I am in!

My brother and I had the discussion about if it was worth it or not when I went on our sailing with my husband.  We got Chill for 399, and my brother balked about the cost.  I turned to him and said because we are going in a group, it was costing 80pp for 8 hrs.  He than changed his mind, saying if you look at that from an excursion cost, it actually is quite cheap.  

If it was only my husband and I. we probably  wouldn't do the cabana, just the bed instead or most likely the bungalow.  I can't justify the size of the cabana for just the 2 of us, hence the beach bed.  Yet, like anything you upgrade on a cruise it is harder to go back to the lower tier knowing how much you enjoyed it.  Kind of like doing a B2B with the 1st week a balcony, and the 2nd week an interior.  If it was the opposite way you would be happy bc you have yet to experience the balcony, but once you do, all you may find yourself saying, just last week we were drinking coffee on our balcony.

Aside from the addition of the waterpark tickets, what's the difference between the Thrill Waterpark Cabana, the Oasis Lagoon Cabana and Chill Island Cabanas.  

For our Anthem, the first Thril Waterpark one is $663 CAD and the other two are $1328 CAD.  South Beach is "cheaper" at $1000 CAD.  You would think the Thrill Cabana would be the pricier one as it comes with waterpark tickets.  Am I missing something?

P.S. - Interesting what they've done with my 2 stop Mariner cruise....The Thrill Waterpark Cabana is $397 on first CoCo Cay day - OR you can get waterpark tickets for $105 each...BUT it includes both CoCo Cay days.  So if you want the cabana for a family of 4, it's cheaper than the waterpark tickets if just looking at the one day.

@WannaCruise.  Did you see anywhere how many Thrill Waterpark tickets are included with the cabana purchase?

It says below "a" Full Day Pass which leads me to believe you get only one ticket.  Bummer...

But more importantly, it comes with 8 towels and water bottles (so 2 extra as this cabana hold 6)...lol.

You're right....very sneaky...it's not clear at all if you get 1 waterpark tickets or more.  Think you're probably right.

I've booked the Thrill Waterpark cabana before and admission was for 6 people.  You need to notify the shore excursion desk which 6 people so they will add admission to the sea pass card.  

Thanks @DublinFC for the heads up on the price drop.  I checked yesterday for our Harmony SB cruise and it was still showing $799.  So happy to get it for $499 especially since 1 waterpark ticket is $93.99.

Thanks for posting this. I just cancelled and rebooked our beach bed for the 2019 Harmony Thanksgiving cruise  at that lower price.
