I predicted that happening when they made the change and many people said it wouldn't make any difference. I guess smokers do think it's a big deal after all. We've definitely seen less smoking on Princess but it may be due to the smokers congregating only in their designated areas which we avoid whenever possible.
Now if they would only add some doors to the casino to keep the smoke segregated from the PSD it would make it much more enjoyable when waiting on line and for the workers that have to be there all day long.
