We will be at HMC on Nov 2 and hoping to participate! Is #11 the only one with treasure so far? We are platinum and have high hopes of picking a cabana in the 9-12 range.

Hi again! (I'm the same person that responds to your hammock question)

Yes, as far as I know #11 is the only one so far. So glad you have decided to play along!

Also, if you're wondering, #11 was perfect for us. It's at the relatively quiet end of the beach, close to restrooms, and the deck was shaded by the surrounding trees well into the afternoon. Whichever cabana you choose, it's sure to be a wonderful day. Enjoy!

So far we only know of #11, but word has it that some of the other ships may be burying treasures too! Also Princess & Holland America ships also visit this port, and maybe burying treasures and hiding rocks!

I am going to try and get the turquoise cabana (1-21-18) for personal reasons and so hope I am able to find a rock & treasure! I have collected rocks from everywhere I visit for many many years, but have never found a painted one! Also hoping our itinerary doesn't change due to hurricane damage to our ports!

No worries! We always get Cabana 12, nice and quiet, but not too far from the restroom.

We take Ziploc or the disposable plastic containers with lids that lunch meat comes in, and then fill them at the buffet and take them back to the Cabana to eat

hahaha at first I thought you were going to say something else after Ziploc or the disposable plastic containers since we were talking about bathrooms hehehe. This is actually a really good idea! That way we can nibble on it all day and no flies!

How was your cruise??? Were you able to get to HMC??? Or were you on the revised itinerary???
