Booked today for November 2009 - 10 Day Caribbean Wayfarer on the Noordam. I've only been looking and trying to convince the sailing partner that it needed to be done. Took the plunge and booked a balcony. I figure booking this far ahead will give us the time to save for the luxury . . . . Now the wait.

Now that's what I call planning ahead. Congrats on your cruise booking!

Cheers, Neil

I never realized HAL had such a "far out" schedule.

Now you're talking class. HAL is my favoritie and I am not that old either. All the colors are so vibrfant and I enjoy the art all over th ship. Always great staff and top notch meals.

This will be our 4th on HAL... I love the elegance and the top notch service, the smaller passenger count and the quiet days at sea. It's pretty amazing that they are actually listing cruises into Dec 2009 already. As you can see from my ticker - I'm still over 600 days out, but I'm only having to save less than $10/day... Let's just hope I don't forget to book air and hotel in November.

I cnat remember, do they have burfets on Hal?

Veendam had the most spectacular dessert buttet (or burfets if you will) I have ever seen; it completely encircled the Lido pool. There were also a couple of lunch buffets by the pool; and their Lido Restaurant is basically a buffet line, which actually kept things much more orderly than Princess' concept of many different "islands".
