If you read the Capers, you will find that smoking is restricted to several areas. Smokers smoke whereever they please,even in the posted "no smoking" areas. When asked not to smoke, I was given a dirty look, and told there was no chairs available in the smoking area, and they lit another cigarette.
Another problem is almost every bar is a smoke filled bar. So how is a non smoker to contribute his money on drinks and gambling, so we can spend as much as smokers on drinks and the casino?
I THINK YOUR A LITTLE CONFUSED TO SAY THAT SMOKERS SMOKE WHEREEVER THEY WANT. I AM A SMOKER, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MYSELF AND OTHERS IS THE LACK OF RESPECT THAT SOME SMOKERS HAVE FOR NON-SMOKERS. THE PROBLEM IS ENFORCEMENT OF RULES--AND THAT IS A CRUISE SHIPS PROBLEM. I DONT THINK YOU SHOULD SMOKE IN CONFINED CLOSED AREAS WITH PEOPLE WHO DONT SMOKE. BIGGER AREAS WITH PROPER VENTILATION SYSTEMS COULD BE AN ANSWER. BUT YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THAT GUY WHO WANTS HIS RIGHT TO SMOKE BUT DOESN'T MIND DAMAGING YOUR HEALTH OR LUNGS IN THE PROCESS. THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST IDIOTS. TO PROVE THAT ASK ONE OF THEM IF THEY WAKE UP EVERY 20 MINUTES TO SMOKE A CIGARETTE OR LEAVE DURING A MOVIE, OR GOD FORBID DURING A FOOTBALL GAME. YOU SEE ITS ABOUT RESPECT FOR OTHERS--------AND SOME JUST NEVER WILL. FROM A RESPECTFUL SMOKER TO A NON-SMOKER IM SORRY---------OH YEA WHAT ABOUT ALL THE JERKS WHO LEAVE THERE TOWELS AND BAGS ON THE CHAIRS WHILE THEY TAKE A 3 HR LUNCH BRAKE OR NAP? I BET THERE NOT ALL SMOKERS-----------YEP ANOTHER CLASS OF NON RESPECTORS OF OTHERS!!!
