Smokers everywhere

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

CryingCrying  We are very allergic to cigarette smoke.  Most of the Celebrity crushes we have been on have express defined smoking areas.  When Westerdam said the casino was smokeless, then they didn't enforce their requests. Many smokers congregated in groups of 6 or more with only one of them playing the machines and the rest using drinking service like a bar.  Give them a bar for smokers only. I have found found that all of the Carnival owned lines appear to have the same disregard for passengers that do not smoke..  It is a shame because the service offered by Holland America is well above or equal to the best any ship can offer.
