Half Moon Cay Cabana

Recommended Posts

We have been watching for a Cabana to open up they have always said sold out until yesterday. Finally got one booked. Then looked a little later and sold out again. Never been to Half Moon Cay before and have read how nice it is to have a cabana there. It states that when getting on the ship you go to shore excursion desk and select which one you want I guess there are 15 of them does any one have suggestions on which one to try and get?

We like #7 or #8, not right in the  most crowded spot, bathrooms right behind it, and not to far to go to the pirate ship bar if you want to.

We get #13 which is the furthest one away. That way it's more secluded where we are and not a ton of passengers right in front of our cabana and swimming around us.

Keep an eye on your stuff.  Especially the floats.  They tend to "walk off" if you don't keep an eye on them.  🙄

 There are bathrooms behind cabanas 9 & 10.  We chose #10 as it is far enough away from the crowds but still close enough to the buffet area.  This is one of our favorite ports as the beach is just perfect!

Agree with this...we always take a cabana somewhere between 10 and 13.  Far enough away from the masses to provide some serenity, but close enough to the bathrooms when the need arises.

Further to the above point, watch out for the indigenous roosters/chickens that are roaming the premises...they don't hesitate to grab any snacks that you may leave out. 

 

We constantly had to run them off...they were the only downside to a wonderful experience.

We've had #10 three times, and we're hoping to snag it again in December!  As was mentioned earlier, it's near the restrooms and far enough away from the crowds!

Thank you for the head's up.  We're hoping to snag #9 or #10 next April.  We have FTTF, but I have to write a note to self to remind me to hit the shore excursion desk asap when we board.

Actually, #15 is the furthest one away.

You're right, I forgot they went in last year and built those 2 new ones. We've done villas since then.

We had #15 back in 2016, so it wasn't built last year.

We just had Cabana #14 a few weeks ago, and it was heavenly. They give you a ride out to the cabana, and if you let one of the attendants know when they stop by, they will call for a golf cart to take you back. We liked being away from the crowds. (My trip report has pictures)

 

We had FTTF and went to the excursion desk immediately upon boarding and there were already five cabanas claimed before we picked ours.

We will be visiting HMC for the first time and have a villa reserved.  Any advice on the best villa to try and get?

 

Thanks.

Actually we had #15 in 2008 when we sailed on the Noordam.  It's been around for as long as we've being going to HMC - 2004.
