Results Report: Holland America Balcony Smoking Survey
The results are in! Thank you to the 334 survey respondents who made the Balcony Smoking Policy Attitudes Survey possible. From July 28th through August 1st, 2014 we surveyed hundreds of participants, calling on them to answer six questions regarding balcony smoking on the cruise ships of the Holland America Line. We will post a more comprehensive analysis of the results later in the week, but we wanted to make the survey report available as soon as possible.

There will be plenty of interpretation later, but for now the plain old results will have to suffice. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please feel free to contact us.
