First, note that the staff and crew were both great--the staff was the high point.  The problem was that a number of the cabins on the Empress Deck *reeked* of smoke becasue of a smoking lounge overhead.   When we requested a cabin change, the staff was very good about helping us, but after a night in the cabin below the smokers, I'd already started coughing enough to drive me to the doctor the day after my return. No doors separate the smoking areas from the rest of the open atrium area, so that smokey smell exists in many corridors/stairwells.
