If you look on the ports board someone posted pictures. Sorry I do not know how to link it. Also when you get off ship if you turn right a boat will take you to Columbus Cove for free or you can take the tram or walk or take the little driving cart up to 6 people .

Mac_tlc , could you give me any more information on renting the beach bed on Adrenaline Beach - we noticed this as an option to rent, but we can not find much information on it
Specifically (and I apologize if this sounds like an odd question) but what stops other (confused) guests from thinking these are "up for grabs" and climbing right in while we are in the water, ect? ... based on the photos, it seems like these are just sitting on adrenaline beach (not as if they only have private access or anything like that) - Hahaha , if we were to return from the bar or the water to find other guests lounging in our bed (and getting sand everywhere) that will greatly sadden me.
I'm sure no one would do so on purpose, but I could easily envision someone thinking they are just up for grabs
Any other thoughts / tips regarding the bed rental would also be appreciated - Thanks!

While they are not roped off, there is an attendant that you check in with when you arrive, and they show you to your beach bed. There is also a bar attendant they makes the rounds frequently, checking with you to see if you need a drink or if there is anything else you need. They also alerted us as to when the lunch buffet opened. We had our towels and a few other items on our beach bed, and never noticed anyone "wandering around" looking to to take possession of any of the beach beds.

Compared to a cabana and even a bungalow, especially if we only have 2, the price is much better and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

We cruise in 9 days and I cannot book a Beach Bungalow. It says Online reservations are not available, please check onboard. It has said the same thing for at least 4 or 5 months..... Does anyone know if this means they're sold out? Or can you just not book online period? I've searched quite a few threads and everyone seems to have booked online so I'm just curious if we missed the chance and need to re-evaluate what to do.

We were able to purchase a bungalow on the island last February. They had one left and they provided wrist bands, towels, water, etc. for us. The bar was nearby and a less-crowded buffet was near us as well. The attendants did a wonderful job keeping wanderers from entering the area. I hope you can experience this...happy cruising!
