    I am traveling with my 82 year old mother as well as my husband and 8 year old daughter. I wasn't lucky enough to reserve a cabana at Castaway Cay. What are the chances of getting one of the umbrellas? Thank you!

    Hello Irene,

    I'm sorry you couldn't snag a cabana on Castaway Cay.  It's soooo hard to do because there are only a very small amount of cabanas available.  Castaway Cay is gorgeous.  It's the port my family and I look forward to the most.  I'm sure you'll be able to grab an umbrella on the beach; you'll just have to get off the ship early in the morning or later on in the day. 

    It shouldn't be very crowded if you walk a little farther down the family beach.  If you don't want to walk down the beach, you can take the tram to the end of the family beach.  That's the Palm Central Tram Stop. 

    I hope this helps Irene.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!  Have a wonderful trip!
