Me too! Me too! I am also a mohekan as in last of. However, I cruised w/ my DD in an inside cabin this past march and she is a militant non-smoker. I just went up to the Lido deck and smoked on the smoking side. In 10 (carribean, Mex Riv, Alaska) cruises over 34+ years I have NEVER smoked in the hallways, by the pursars/excursion desk, outside the dine room, or waiting for an elevator. I give non-smokers their rights and generally try to be aware and coutreous. Difficulties have ocurred with ship staff not knowing or getting right the "smoking" vs. non side of the ship. . Please , non-smoking world I try for you give me my area too.
