I vote with my wallet and now Regent Seven Seas has been stricken from the list of cruise lines that I have lined up to try. I am an ex-smoker and find it intolerable that a smoker can not enjoy a cigarette in their stateroom or on their balcony. My last cruise my neighbors smoked and I darn near begged them to blow te smoke my way. But they were always downsind.
It doesn't do much good to get long winded about rights etc. Vote with your wallets. That was the "demise" of the Paradise experiment. If you are a smoker and you use the services of these restrictive cruise lines then you have just told them it is OK by you, and other lines will follow suit. If enough of the "money" people shun the services of these lines, then guess what the other lines will do.
