The Paradise is not a non-smoking ship once again - hasn't been since 2003 and from what my Carnival rep told me, there are no plans to try this experiment again, at least not in the foreseeable future.
As much as non-smokers say they want an all non-smoking ship, it's just financial feasible, so I don't anyone will try it again anytime soon.
