$1300 to $1700. Those are cruise fares for 2. You've  got to be nuts to buy one of these. $1700 for 8 hours. LOL

It’s more than the cruise fare for some.

It's more like: We spent a bucket-load of money "upgrading" this island, now we need to recoup the cost.

That's a given. Now it's "How do we do it".

On Tuesday the oasis and Chill cabanas were $450, yesterday they were in the $1200 range, today they are $473.99. This is for the Harmony in February.

It is interesting. A few years ago RCCL, increased the cabana rates from $250 north of $300. Then everyone was upset, but still paid. Then, prices steadily increased to the $400 - $600 range and more people decided not to buy. Now they come out with prices north of $1,000 and the majority of people are now content with their $374 to $474 prices. It seems to me that the marketing person RCCL hired should get a nice bonus for getting more cabanas sold in the $400 - $600 range than ever before. This is not a bargain, but another sales tactic. Think about it. Who is really going to rent a cabana for over $1,000 for 7 hours or less. If you find someone on your ship who did, please introduce them to me as I have a bridge in Brooklyn...In the end, their strategy is to get us to  jump at the lower $300 to $500 range and feel happy that we got a "deal".

Are people really paying $1,299 for a cabana?! I'm on the Anthem in Nov 2019, and that price just seems outrageous!

If they are then I'm sure that for RCI it is their idea of a "Perfect Day at Coco Cay".... for the company.

Next, they will be printing that red banner at the top that says “Only X number remaining, and 50 people are looking at this now.”   Some people with a FOMO will probably jump at that higher price.

Answer: As quickly as possible by charging as much as possible.

Not necessarily...and not typically.

- do you know if we get the special golf cart to take us to the cabanas as they used to do before ?

- also the small  lunch section just for cabanas is gone right?

Nope...and there's not Uber or limo service to cabanas either. 🤣

 

There's are Snack Shacks (burgers, hot dogs, and other things) near the cabana areas, as well as a Skippers Grill. The future (December) South Beach Cabana area will have its own eating facility.

Chill island and oasis have shot back up to $1299 and south beach now show $799. 

 

I feel like it’s a game at this point to see how far up or down they go from day to day.

Indeed...with only a number of game winners when the prices are down to "normal".

On my Harmony cruise in May 2020 the cabanas were $399 and now they are $1299.  I don't mind paying up to $500 for one but that's just outrageous!  I am prepping my daughters that we might not have a cabana this time.  Absolutely crazy!!!

I started another thread on this topic.

 

For our July 2020 (yes, a YEAR away), they are showing $1299 for Chill Island and Oasis cabanas.  CRAZY

 

I see, my thread got merged with this one.
