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
OMG!!! You're right! Come to think of it, we could lessen the risk of fire even more if the diesels were shut down, main curcuit breaker opened, and propane shut off to the kitchens! How bad could floating with the tide in the dark eating tuna salad be???
