Is there a blurring of the line between Seabourn and HAL?

Seabourn Cruise Line - boards.cruisecritic.com
I don't really want to start a fight, but there are a couple of disturbing data points that I've run across recently.

We were having a discussion with Richard Maier, who we remembered as a junior waiter from our first Seabourn cruise in 2009 - now a "manager of public spaces". He said he was onboard for the launch of the new craft cocktail program after the start of the new year. Turns out it isn't just on Seabourn

Quote:

A luxury cruise is no place for mediocre martinis, Mai Tais and margaritas. To boost its bar program, Holland America has partnered with 2015 James Beard Who's Who Inductee and Master Mixologist Dale DeGroff to reinvent their cocktail menu. DeGroff's original recipes and finessed takes on the classics will debut aboard ms Eurodam this month and will expand fleet-wide to all 13 Holland America passenger ships by spring 2016.

Then, last month, we also saw the Encore promo video, detailing how fortunate it was that Adam D. Tihany was the designer for the interiors for the new ship. Well, it turns out that isn?t the only ship he?s been designing for:

Quote:

Adam D. Tihany is regarded as one of the world?s pre-eminent hospitality designers, and he?ll make his mark with Holland America Line when ms Koningsdam debuts in April 2016. He is a leader in creating luxurious and innovative interiors in the world of hospitality and his work will touch all aspects of the guest experience.

I have to believe this is an inevitable outcome of the move from Miami to Seattle and being placed under HAL. These are two data points that are out in the open -- how many aren't?
