The biggest problem I have with this new Policy is on the Fantasy Class ships. This new Policy virtually eliminates most night time entertainment venues for smokers. They eliminated the Piano Bar, another Bar, and the Aft Bar which was used as a Cigar Bar (and also as by some as a Sports Bar).
The only thing left is the Night Club (Disco) or a small area of the Casino. I am getting too old for the Disco and the music, and the Casino Bar doesn't have many stools in the designated smoking area and doesn't have a good view of any TV for sports. This went way too far on that particular class of ships.
Also, some of those ships don't have Balconies other than the Suites.
