Thanks for the info. Hubby is a smoker and wasn't willing to try Royal Caribbean if he had to go a week without smoking. Our first cruise was last month on the Millennium. There were designated smoking areas and it wasn't a problem for us ... except for people who sat in the smoking section and then complained about it, but we find that everywhere. When we were in St. Thomas we saw the non-smoking ship with a big cigarette with a red x through it on the back of the ship. heard rumors they found someone smoking and put them off in St. Thomas.
