Default HEAR HEAR!!!!! At least non-smoking CABINS!!

It almost ruined my cruise on Princess Diamond. Booked a balcony for the first time and could hardly use it. The people on BOTH sides were heavy smokers and I swear they just waited for us to open our balcony door and they were out there in a shot, lighting up. We couldn't breathe for the smoke, and had to come back in and close the door. What a waste!

Default Oceania? Is that a small ship?

I can get extremely sea sick, so I like to stick with the larger ships. I've never known anyone who cruised them before - will have to look into it.
Thanks!!

Yes they hold about 684 pax but very nice ships.

They are usually sold out for most of their sailings.

I am giving Carnival 2 chances in 2007 to do something about the smoking. If I have to experience that stink like I had to endure last time, I will stick to non smoking land destinations for my vacations in the future. With the meetings Carnival has coming up about smoking, I hope Carnival does something to make their ships the family ships they want to be known as. I would like to enjoy the casino, but until they get rid of smoking in there, they will not get a dime from me.

I live in L.A., so this is my home port. The only place they cruise to [from here] is Miami.

Oh too bad you don't fly to other ports.
I that kind of limits your cruising options!

Just saw a commercial for Marriott Hotels...ALL are now non-smoking!

With the growing cases of COPD and asthma in both children and adults...this is happening none to soon.

A small additional comment:

Yes, a person has a right to use their remaining heartbeats the way they chose. But smoking around non-smokers can be compared to a person attempting to commit suicide by setting fire to a bldg. filled with other people. He doesn't ask if anyone else wants to die, if their depressed, or if they care to be burned to death...in his selfishness, he makes that decision for them.

There is PLENTY of evidence that cig. smoke is dangerous, especially to babies, young children, and anyone with a compromised immune system. There are cancer patients and survivors who while cruising don't want to place themselves in any situation that might further impede their recovery or safety.

Some Smokers have to think rethink their need for immediate gratification.

We will be taking our first cruise on the Carnival Inspiration soon and both of us are smokers. What is the policy about smoking aboard cruiseships?

Hi alohaoleon,

Welcome to Cruisemates!

You can smoke in your cabin and in the designated smoking areas. Those are usually on one side of the outside decks and one part of some of the bars. Generally, if you see ashtrays on the tables and no non-smoking signs, you're in the right place!

Have a wonderful cruise!

Also the Great Wolf Lodges are all non smoking and they are always full. They are a success at the smoking ban. The lodge imposes a $250 to a $500 clean up fee if anyone is caught smoking. Carnival could survive just as well without the smokers. Great class Great Wolf!

Default Bring back a nonsmoking ship!

We loved our cruise on the Paradise. And you could really tell the difference that having a nonsmoking ship made in the soft goods, and the overall clean smell of the ship. Cabins didn't have that "stale" smell that they so often have when you first walk in. And the casino was wonderful to be in, with no smoke. I didn't have to use my inhaler once! There were no burn holes. You would think that, even though the cruise line lost money in the casino and bars, they would have done a cost analysis to see if the money they saved by not having to repair and replace things as often due to cigarette smoke and burns would have them coming out better. Perhaps they did and we didn't hear about it. But I also have to agree that they did NOT market it enough. I really think if they had done a better job of advertising that ship, for a longer period of time, it would have caught on. Perhaps that ship could have a smaller casino and refurbish part of the space for something else people would like? I do not think it was given a real chance to thrive.

Carnival tried for years with the Paradise. It just wasn't making enough profit. The revenues from the casino and bars were not inline with the smoking ships. Don't you think that if there was any way this could have worked, Carnival would have found it? It comes down to non-smokers not spending enough cash on board. Sorry, but I think that there will not be a non-smoking ship for a while. They may limit where you can smoke, but they will have to be careful about it. I was on Holland America in Nov. 06, they made the casino non-smoking from like 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm. During this time, I swear, the casino was empty!! At 10:00 pm, it got busy. Just as soon as the no smoking sign came down, it was packed.

I just disembarked the Noordam on 12/27/06. The casino is non-smoking all the time. It was still relatively busy during the times one would expect. I'm one of those nasty smokers, and I didn't mind one bit. If it's a non-smoking area then I respect that and don't smoke. I do however smoke with relish where it's designated to do so. Can't we all just get along????

Yes, I believe we can all get along - it appears that you are one smoker who is willing to respect the rights of nonsmokers, and I commend you for it.

I can still remember the day my wife called me with joy that we could take a cruise - as she is allergic to second hand smoke (asthma attacks), we had long dreamed of taking a cruise. By happenschance, she came across the end of a CNN story on the inaugural cruise of the Paradise and waited an hour and a half for the story to come back around to find out what line they were talking about, then excitedly called me.

We first sailed in July of 1999 and took a total of five cruises on the Paradise, including the last Caribbean cruise before it transited to LA and was made a smoking ship. We recently took our first cruise on a smoking allowed ship and, while we made it through six days, she did have problems with smoke in certain unavoidable areas.

My question to the multitudes - how much more would you be willing to pay for the cruise if the ship was smokefree? My recollection is that Carnival did not charge a premium for the Paradise - if they had (say $100 per passenger on a seven day cruise), I would have gladly paid the extra to get an environment that I wanted.

We are willing to pay to cruise with limited smoking areas.
We found Oceania has very strict smoking policies only 2 designated areas for smoking (1 inside 1 outside)...if you violate the rules you are disembarked at the next port of call.

They have small ships, not family oriented, more mature passengers, no formal nights but you will NOT get cruises for $499.

Since my father died of emphysema at the age of 57 I am personally against smoking. Although watching him while I was growing up as a young teenager I know how hard (or next to impossible) it is to stop smoking once you start.

It would be nice though if cruise ships could designate different deck levels for smokers and non-smokers, like hotels designate different floor levels for smokers or non-smoker. How about it cruisers? Think this will ever happen?

Not likely. Cruise lines will fill up those cabins anyway they can.

Yes PLEASE!!! My last cruise was ruined. I spent the extra to have a balcony and the people in the cabin next door NEVER.... I swear.... left their cabin. They spent the entire cruise getting room service and sitting on the balcony smoking - which wafted straight into my cabin, of course. All night, even, I had to keep the balcony door closed - they never slept.

But again we have a problem when unconsiderate smokers pretend not to read or just plain ignore the signs. Sorry to all the smokers who take offense to this, and if by chance you are one of the few who can't read or find a non-smoking sign, all the crew can help you out on this one.

I'm not a smoker, but a Cruise Ship Hotel Director who has to hear the multitude of complaints about smoking.

You mention that some smokers PRETEND not to see the smoking signs.
You may be correct - or maybe they are just not paying attention.
Then you say that "the casino is one place that all ships have a non-smoking section".

That is just not true. Many of the 23 cruise ships I have managed in my career do not have a no smoking section. Could it be that you are also PRETENDING not to see the signs -or maybe you are not paying attention either?

I'm guessing that Costa and MSC (and Pullmantur and Iberocruceros) will have the most smokers?

Any updates on which will have the fewest? Or is it like the previous post from a few years ago suggests; it's the luck of the draw.

Would any origin port for cruises to the Caribbean have fewer smokers?

Bruce, I know we've had some recent smoking threads, but you replied to a post by RJSMOM from 2006. Thread appears to have been resurrected on the post before yours. Always enjoy your comments, but this time I bet Elvis has left the building...

So they allow you to smoke in cabins? Do they have smoker cabins and non-smoker cabins? If not we may cancel that first cruise as we cannot stand being in a room that someone has been smoking in before us...sorry smokers, you just dont understand how bad you smell and make things smell...if you want to smoke that is cool, but we should not have to deal with your after effects...

Alaskans from West Central Indiana

The smoking rules within cabins vary by line. Many are now restricting smoking in cabins but allow it on balconies/verandas. I don't think anybody had specific smoking/non-smoking cabins. Some Carnival ships have spa class cabins that do not allow smoking and have significant penalties to passengers who smoke in therm.

I believe that both NCL and Carnival are in the process of changing the rules so that there is no smoking in cabins. I would check their websites before you decide whether to go or not. I don't mind the change, even though I am a smoker, I hate the huge volumes of second hand smoke you sometimes encounter. I go up on deck, usually all the way aft if I want a smoke. I don't smoke in my own house, or anyone else's, so I'm not going to stink up our cabin either. See, some of us do know how stinky we are!

Was not trying to be mean, but there are some who just dont get it...we dont mind if a smoker is smoking in a smoking area and we go there, but we hate non-smoking room in hotels that smell like a day old ash tray, or when sitting in a food establishment and a smoker lights up and refuses to put it out, putting thier ashes in a water glass, things like that is what ruins it for all the other smokers...we checked and they said no smokoing in cabins, but from what we read here it seems some just dont follow the rules as is the norm now-a-days with some people no matter what it is
