On RCL smoking was allowed on balconies and that meant we had to smell stinky smoke any time we wanted to use ours. On NCL smoking was NOT allowed on balconies and we could enjoy our balcony smoke free.
I expect smoke in the casino but want to be able to breathe fresh air in my own room and balcony. I don't think that's too much to ask.
