Whether or not this particular fire was caused by someone carelessly using or disposing of smoking material (I have read it's possible that a cigarette was "tossed" from an upper deck, but let's wait and see) cruise ships may have to seriously consider banning or severely restricting smoking on ships.

Frankly (and yes I am a reformed smoker but still smoke an occasional cigar) I would like to see smoking banned on all cruise ships. Maybe the ships could establish a smoking area (similar to the cigar lounges).

No matter what we all think (Pro or Con) there will most certainly be a knee jerk reaction to this and an extreme policy will be put in place (insurance companies will require it or raise premiums).
