As regards smoking, we just got off the Noordam Jan. 6th and there was no smoking in the Dining Room or Buffet on Lido Deck but I can tell you that we did smell smoke in our hallway outside our cabin, so guess some people still do smoke in their cabins. I wish they would not allow it at all for everyone,s safety. They also had a Cigar Bar where people smoked but not in the casino anymore. Hope this helps. Holland America a great line but wish they would get more serious about smoking.
