Default Smoking Areas?

I will be cruising on Carnival's Sensation on 9/2. I like to smoke a cigar after dinner and I was wondering about the smoking policy. Is smoking limited to designated smoking areas or can you smoke anywhere other than designated no-smoking areas? Areas I am especially curious about include the casino, library, on deck, and in my cabin and on the balcony.

Thanks,

Coconut

For the sake of others on board, smoke your cigars at home!

Cigar smoking area are limited. On Sensation, there is a small area of the lounge at the rear, just outside their alternate show room/lounge where I believe they allow cigar smoking.
Other than that I believe you're limited to your cabin, balcony, and on the smoking side of the outdoor decks.

On the sensation you are allowed to smoke cigars ONLY in the Polo lounge on the Promenade deck towards the aft end. Cigarettes are allowed to be smoked in everywhere else except the main lounge, dining room, spa/gym, and the right side of the ship.

Thanks for the info. I had called the 1888-Carnival line and received conflicting information. The just of their initial reply was that you could smoke a cigar anywhere smoking was permitted. I told them what you guys said about the issue and upon further review they said that smoking of cigars was permitted only in the Polo lounge, on deck, and on the balcony of my suite. I make every effort to play by the rules but it is difficult when the cruse line CS Reps donít know their own policy! Thanks Cruisemates!

"Must we smoke..."

No, smoking is not required of you or any of us but you can expect to encounter smokers on every cruise ship other than the Paradise.

"...let alone CIGARS!"

In my opinion only the finest cigars are worth the effort.

I have not smoked a cigarette before but they appear to be quite popular with the masses. I have heard it said that they're the best things since docker shorts.

Hey coconut,

Don't get so defensive!

I am a former smoker of over 20yrs, I use to smoke 3 packs a day.
While as a smoker, I have heard just about everything negitive about smoking from everyone.

Everywhere I went, whether with family, friends, and even strangers, they ALL
gave me greef, and I had every excuse Imaginable to shut them up,
and (did I mention) they all used to piss me off. (pardon my language) so I DO know how you feel.

It was however, all of the crap given to me that eventually lead me to quit.
Quitting was the hardest thing, and the best thing I have ever done.
I have been off the sticks now for over 10 yrs. 12 to be exact.

I dont cough my brains off while showering, or reek of the smell of smoke anymore,
My shirts no longer have little burn holes. I dont offend anyone anymore.
and most of all, I am healthier and I feel a whole lot better. You cant give me one good reason to smoke. The monkey is finally off my back.

Lets face it. We have to quit sometime in our life, lets do it while we are still alive
I am on this campaign to a smoke free world.

...and about those Docker shorts? I look really cute in them!

Joe

Like Joe I'm a former smoker too - 10 years now.

But even when I smoked cigarettes, I couldn't stand cigars ... they'd give me headaches, they smell up homes (drapes in particular), etc. ... and it sure would upset me to have to have a balcony cabin next to someone who foisted his/her filthy habit on me.

Hopefully, you will consider your fellow passengers who can't escape your cigar smoking by doing all of it in your enclosed cabin ... or as cough-cough said - do it at home.

Since we're bragging here... I've been off cigarettes for over 7 years now. Very glad I did it. Gained 15 lbs, not bad compared to many others. My lungs show no difference, I'm still very easily winded, but I'm glad not to be a slave to them anymore. I tried switching to cigars, but still ended up smoking cigarettes. I'm jealous of those who don't become slaves to smoking. And I have to admit, I still love the smell of a good cigar.
