Interesting enough Celebrity's other half Royal Caribbean changed their policy to no smoking in cabins but allowed it on balconies. As a smoker I can still sail my May 4th Mariner cruise without great concern since I don't smoke in cabin anyway. However no smoking on balcony either is just one step too many for me. As an Elite and Diamond member I will vote with my dollars instead of crying about it. Myself and several friends have decided that we will not book RCL ( couple reasons for that on top of smoking policy ) or Celebrity in future. I have no problem with lines decision, their business after all. Like businesses making decision on their own versus government legislating when and where.
If all lines follow like the non-leaders most are then that will present a major problem.
