Thanks everyone for sharing your reviews and experiences with the Havana Cabanas. I booked a cabana deck 5 with the patio for my son's graduation in 2020 on Vista so it will be a family vacation with no privacy expected. lol. I have been seeing everyone's opinions about the privacy of the cabins with the roomy patios, and have stayed in a regular balcony room with the 35" sq foot patio and there really isn't much privacy when your up/down/side neighbors are outside all the time. The only thing is that only boats that pass by can perhaps see in your room if you always keep the shade open. We never keep our shade open even at hotels on the 35th floor. I look forward to making new friends with my cabana neighbors, instead of them just lurking around the balcony divider.
I am also looking forward to the private pool/hot tub area and think the time is great that it is restricted during certain hours and as well as the age restriction. Some of these cruise kids get wild in the regular pools that make it NOT fun for us that want to chillax. We basically couldn't use the regular pools at all during the day, because it was jammed packed. Anyway .. we usually spend the evenings at dinner or at comedy shows or exploring the ships activities. I noticed during our last cruise, the pools/hot tubs were dead after 8-9PM usually. Also, there's always the serenity spas to hang out in, at night if the havana pool does get crowded. It was also quiet in the evenings . . on most nights.
Again, hoping to continue to follow this post for more updates on the Havana area.
