Default Is there a Nellies Beach Cabana Map?

Does anyone know if there is a Nellie's Beach cabana map like the one that is available for Barefoot Beach?

How many Nellie's Beach "Hillside" cabanas are there?

thanks!

Anyone ??? I'm looking for the same thing. Because Nellie's Beach cabanas are first come first served, I was hoping to see where the "over the water" cabanas are located so I won't have to spend a lot of time trying to decide which one to choose once I get there.

Don't depend on getting a cabana on Nellie Beach when you get there. They are on the excursion board and usually go quite quickly with reservations before the cruise. They are only "First come first Served" if there are any left when the ship docks. We have an "over the water" cabana reserved for our August 30th sailing. I booked it in June and I checked the other day and the Nellies Beach Cabanas were no longer available.

We have an over the water cabana reserved already. I would like to see a map of where they are located around Nellie's Beach so we'll have an idea of which ones we would like to try and get once we arrive.

Oh, I miss understood you. I think the decision is made by the ship and not by the passenger. That is what I have taken from the other posts on this site. We also have an "Over the Water" cabana for our August 30th sailing. From pictures on the board, it looks like about three of them. From comments on this site, any one of them is just great.

We aren't going until February. You'll have to do us all a favor and post some pictures of ALL the cabanas at Nallie's Beach. Most pictures you see on here are of cabanas at Barefoot Beach.

I would prefer a cabana that looks out toward the ship and water rather than one that faces the beach.

I will take some pictures of the Nellie's Beach Cabanas. Then all I have to do is figure out how to post them on this site. I will try my best to get some information on the Nellies Beach Cabanas for the board.

No, those are part of the Beach Cabanas on the other side of the beach from the over the water and hillside cabanas (and those are brand new). They look somewhat high in that picture - but they really arent. The easiest way to tell is those have direct access to the water...the hillsides don't.

The hillside cabanas are between Barefoot and Nellie's...

Default Nellies cabana

I am thinking of ones of these for our Late November cruise. Does the fee include transfer to and from the ship.
Would you recommend one or is there some shade available please?

Hmmmmm, Qtmichelle had quoted that they were hillside? This is so confusing. So the only hillside ones are the ones between Barefoot Beach and Nellies beach up on that area that juts out?

So the ones right above the "Nellies" are the only Hillside Catagory?


Im fine with that....just trying to make sure

I believe the ones you are looking at in this picture above the word "Nellie's" are over the water cabanas at Nellie's Beach. I think the new hillside cabanas are not shown in this picture. They are probably to the right, between Nellie's and Columbus Cove.

See, this is why we need a map that shows the location and designation of each cabana.

The ones over the word Nellies are the hilltop - see this thread post # 7
http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1625781

one easy way to differentiate - the beach cabanas are directly on the beach behind the deck chairs
the hilltop run right beside the barefoot hilltop and there are only a few
-the Over The Water - the have direct access to the water - so if the cabana has steps directly into the water it is an OTW
One thing to keep in mind when I snapped those photos in above thread is the tide was very low that day and so more ground is exposed than normal

There is no map I am aware of for Nellies . . . yet!
The hilltop ones are few - you have to climb stairs up and down to get to them.

I thought the cabanas in this picture from your previous post (which are over the water cabanas) were the same ones on the point above the word Nellies.



My mistake

My mistake
it's very hard to picture - the hilltop facing the ship wraps around and drops towards these OTW facing the beach - you can see I took this from the beach out towards the ship as opposed to the hilltop from the ship - I know sounds confusing

Thanks Melanie. One thing I am sure of, we are going to enjoy our cabana immensely I think this is the one thing I am looking forward to the most... besides sailing an Oasis class ship (Allure) for the first time.
