I would be willing to bet that if there was a all non smoking ship and a all smoking ship that the smoking ship would be more profitable then the non smoking ship. That is why the Paradise reverted back to being a regular style cruise ship, it wasn't making enough money to be viable.
Like others have said, Non smokers should just use the other lines who have tightened their regulations so much that you would find very few smokers there. Likewise though, please leave us smokers a cruise line so we can enjoy cruising too. I have said many times that 1 side of the ships cabins should be for smokers and the other side for non smokers, it would help to greatly eradicate the problems between the two.
