Default Smoking in dining room?

Is smoking allowed in the dining rooms? What about the other eating areas?

Thanks.

Dinning rooms are all smoke free as I believe are all eating areas--except of course outdoor areas.

No Smoking in dinning areas, buffets....
You are allowed to smoke on one side of the ship on th Lido deck or open areas...
I don't smoke myself or my wife & was never bothered by smoke on the Conquest....
Smoking allowed in Casino, all lounges Except the Degas Lounge on the Conquest...

No smoking is allowed in any enclosed dining area. For open deck areas, smoking is usually confined to the port side of the ship. Some (not all) lounges/bars allow smoking, as well as the casino. You can also smoke in your cabin.

It is amazing that smokers (I'm an ex) can smoke in any of the cabins. One reason I prefer a balcony cabin, easier to air out from a previous smoker. Not so with an inside/oceanview cabin. When I was on the Paradise last, I couldn't figure out what the funny smell was in my favorite place, the casino. Turns out it was nothing!!!!!

I think a lot of new cruisers assume that there are "non-smoking" cabins available on cruise ships....like there are in hotels. Never has been the case, and never will be the case. No cruise line is going to set aside non-smoking cabins that may or may not be filled. Many Americans don't realize that a large sector of the cruise market are Europeans, who ...smoke a lot. I don't smoke, either, but never found a smoke smell in any cabin on any ship I've ever been on. The reason that Carnival is converting the Paradise into a smoking ship is because it was an experiment that didn't produce the revenue to keep that ship profitable.

Not everybody has the same sense of smell. Just as not everyone has the same hearing or vision. I smell good, others smell bad ..........

Wife smokes, I do not. All our cabin steward asked was that we keep the bathroom door cracked to exhaust the smoke. I smelled no smoke the whole cruise. Maybe I'm just used to it but I do believe there are "courteous smokers" and those who are not.
One post I read said their "neighbors" smoked pot the whole cruise and no one said or did anything about it.

As for the "neighbors smoked pot the whole cruise and no one said or did anything about it". who is to say no one said anything? Maybe thet did? Maybe there was nothing that could be done since they were in international waters ........

There is no smoking in the dining room period and even in the alternitive Lido dining are you can only smoke outside on the designated smoking side of the ship.

The odds that you will even follow a smoker on the next trip in a given cabin are high. Multiplying the percentage of the population that smokes (low to begin with), times those who would even cruise, would make it an extreme longshot that you would wind up in a cabin where a smoker had been on a previouis trip. The odds are significantly greater that a non-smoker had been in that cabin. So saying you had never smelled smoke in a cabin means little. Now if you knew there was a smoker in that cabin the previous week and could say you smelled nothing, well, that would be a bit more significant.
With what one pays for a cabin on a cruise today, I don't think it unreasonable to have a cabin that smells smoke free. Hotels will gladly move you to a different room under these circumstances. Will a crtuise ship? That question is rhetorical.
Hey, if you have been in the smoke free casino at Foxwoods, well, now that is heaven. As was the casino on Paradise!
