I am presently in Vancouver awaiting my Alaska cruise on the Infinity, but just had to post this before I left. I just got back from a last minute cruise on the Zuiderdam and must say I was a bit disappointed. We had a wonderful suite and the service was good - but I could not believe how many people were smoking. It seemed no matter what public area we went into, smoke filled the room. I know there are designated smoking sections - but the design of the public rooms made it impossible to escape. Also, it has been a few years since I sailed on HAL - but it is definitely not the same caliber of clientele, nor experience that I remember (t-shirts in the dining room, shooters and beers being downed by obnoxiouly loud people at 10 AM in the morning). This used to be my favorite line, but based on this cruise - I will look elsewhere in the future. Does anyone else feel that they have somehow lost their way - or is it me???
