Sorry I thought this thread was re new smoking policy.
You will never stop people smoking. Someone said it is not illegal; btw neither is drinking yourself into an early grave but the cruiselines have not adopted a policy of prohibition. Smoking is being restricted to fewer areas because of the well documented effects of passive smoking .... and maybe a few lawsuits.
Anyway, I wonder if the cruiselines have investigated the feasibility/profitability say of 1 in 4 cruises being either 100% smoking or 100% non-smoking.
I am a confirmed non-smoker for the simple reason I could not afford both vices - travelling and smoking.
but smoke also gets up my nose/in my eyes.
Speaking for myself, I spend less on a cruise because they allow smoking in the casinos.
