I have never seen it officially confirmed, but the story that is widely told is that the non-smoking ship, Carnival Paradise, always sailed full and was very popular, but was not profitable. It seems that non-smokers are also very light gamblers and drinkers and without those two profit areas, a non-smoking ship became an economic failure. Makes sense to me ...
