We were waitlisted for "any veranda cabin" once on the Maasdam and got one about 2 1/2 months prior to sailing. It was at regular price. You are so close to sailing that I agree with Sail a deal is...

Very impressed with HAL CCL Shareholder service

I faxed my request for OBC as CCL Shareholder for upcoming cruise in September and had an email confirmation back within 10 minutes. That's the fastest it has ever happened. Thank you HAL!!
