The new smoking policy is way too restrictive. Yes, dh & I are smokers and have always booked a balcony cabin for that reason. Now it seems there will be no more relaxing with a glass of wine and a cigarette on the balcony.

We are not "spring chickens" and it would be difficult to leave our cabin to find an area to smoke every time we want to light up. Smokers usually want a cigarette first thing in the am and the urge doesn't go away at a certain time at night. I can just see dh & myself in our night clothes having to go somewhere out on deck if we have the urge. Would we don our bathrobes or have to get dressed to go? What if the weather is bad? The whole matter is ridiculous!

Cabin bans are understandable but restricting balcony smoking is just unacceptable. We will take our upcoming Nov Princess cruise and make it our farewell to Princess. We will be moving on to HAL.
