How illogical that some of the ships enforce a nonsmoking policy in the dining room and other public areas, due to health, safety and customer preferences, but then "undo" it by forcing us to sleep and relax in rooms where the mattresses, drapes, and curtains contain old gray smoke. The turnaround on disembarkation times and embarkation times are only hours, at most. There is no way for a room to be cleaned or aired out in that time! Get real. I am furious!
Perhaps you're one of those people who shouldn't cruise . Every cabin we've had over the years has been clean and fresh smelling. I don't think the soft materials in the cabins "emit" smoke . Also, you'd probably be surprised to know that hotel rooms can be "changed" from smoking to non-smoking if necessary. And that there might be a bug in the kitchen of any restaurant!

Life has it's "ickiness". If we want to leave our homes (and even if we don't ) we have to get used to it.

JMHO,
