We have had a Lido cabana on the NA 3 times and enjoy having a dedicated space for us by the pool. I do not find it very crowded on that side. If you want privacy, there are curtains you can close. There is a double lounger, table and 2 chairs in the cabana, as well as a steward that is just for the cabanas. He/she will get your drinks and actually bring you food to the cabana. Bottled water and a fruit bowl are set up every morning and sparkling wine and fruit are brought every afternoon. We do tip the steward separately at the end of the cruise. Sorry, we have never had the outdoor cabanas.
