Default Plan your walking routes.

Before going on your next cruise, have your travel agent send you a list of all the non smoking areas on the ship that you will be cruising on. This is a great way to plan your paths from point A to point B without getting caught up in the smoke filled lounges and walkways. This is a great thing if you have children, handicapped or elderly people with you. No need to smell like smoke after just leaving your cabin freshly showered.

That's some serious planning. The people that I am worried about are the newbies on here, who now think, or picture their cruise ship pulling out of port, leaving a trail of smoke.

For those who don't know, there are many places on a ship, that smoking is not allowed.

I agree with Luanne. If you hate smoke, it would be easier to find out where the smoking areas are and avoid them.

There are only a few smoking areas on the major cruise lines: one side of the pool deck, the casino (or even half of it), a bar or two, and the cabins. Just avoid these areas and live and let live.

99.9% of smokers will not smoke in non-smoking areas. If you are bothered by the other .1% point out that they're in a non-smoking area or notify the cruise staff.

It's really not such a "Big Deal" !

That is what I have done. On my last cruise, 50% were smoking in non smoking areas. And as far as mentioning it to the staff, they done nothing. I was told at the pursers desk that Carnival employees can't approach the guests. That was lame.
