Default If irons are banned, so should smoking materials be

I could not agree more. I have wondered about this several times. For those of you out there who smoke, you probably have no idea how the rest of us feel, when we really stop and think about it, that we are on a ship, in the middle of the ocean, and the probability of whether or not we have a fire on that ship is in large part due to whether or not you fall asleep with a cigarette in your hand, or let it fall somewhere wrong inadvertantly. There's just too much risk associated with smoking on a cruise ship, and I've always wondered why it's even allowed. It's bad enough of a risk in a high-rise hotel building, but at least there are several ways to get a lot of fire engines there on land. When you're at sea, it's a lot different.
