We are sailing the Noordam on February 3, 2010, and I was pleased to discover on the HAL website yesterday that they are now accepting reservations for a beach cabana on that sailing date. Since there are only about 20 cabanas available, I immediately reserved one. If anyone else is interested, you should know that as of this morning only 17 were still available. Take note, the HAL site is currently down for the day (Saturday) for routine maintenance and won't be back until this evening. Happy cruising.
