Default Casino suggestion

I wouldl love to see the cruise lines implement an area in the casino, that is non smoking. Many times I have had to move away from someone with a cup of coins in one hand, and a cigarette in the other.......This would make me so very happy!

Trip, as a smoker, I would like to see that also. Being a very polite smoker, if no one is smoking at a table , I won't sit down or I won't smoke.

But for the non-smokers, I will never purposely inflict them to my nasty habit - but they deserve some non-smoking place to enjoy the casino and on CCL there are non-smoking tables, but what good does that do if the slots and tables next to you are filled with smokers. However, the cruiselines have smoking and non-smoking bars and I have no qualms about lighting up in a smoking bar.

The only problem I see here is that the cruiselines know that smokers are a big part of their passengers, and to make the casino totally non-smoking would cause a loss in profits for them. Just look at the fact that the Paradise went from non-smoking to smoking.

I will go out on a limb here and say that most smokers are cognizant of the non-smokers around them, but give us a smoking area and we are all over that..

Maybe on the new ships being built they will take this into consideration.

We were on the Conquest in Nov. 2003...... Went to the casino & had to leave after $2.00 of nickels because of the SMOKE...... You have to remember that smokers are now in the minority so why not make 60% of the casino Non-Smoking & also use separate ventalation for the non-smoking area......

On the Century (in April) the starboard side had a bank of slot machines that were designated as non smoking. They were hard to get, too. At night, it didn't seem to matter though... the smoke there was just as bad. We go to the casino during the day (at sea) or right when it opens once we leave a port (we always have late dinner) for an hour or so. Never at night.

being a cigar smoker I am limited to smoke in two places on the ship,
out by the pool or in the cigar bar. as to smoking and non-smoking lounges
I feel that the smoking situation as gotten a lot worse since they have
put restrictions on wheree one can smoke. now all the smoke is concentrated
into these small areas which makes it seem a lot worse than it is. this is
just my own opinion.

Holland America had no smoking in the casino from 630pm to 1030pm a few nights but if you had late seating for dinner you couldnt enjoy that.
