Hi MJ,
For awhile Carnival Paradise was a non smoking ship, but not anymore.

Donna is right. The "Paradise" was the only Carnival ship that I'm aware of that was absolutely non smoking, but it too has been changed to a normal "smoking is allowed in some areas" ship. The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I are non smokers, but don't find it a problem aboard most ships. The only time I've had a problem, was when there was a really good band in one of the lounges that I wanted to listen to, but that particular lounge happened to be a "smoking lounge". I simply found something else to do.

Have a great cruise,

Ken

The most restrictive cruise line where smoking is concerned is Oceania.

They do not allow smoking in any cabins or on the balconies. They only have 2 small areas (one is the corner by the pool) and another small area inside where smoking is allowed.

Everywhere else, including casinos, bars etc are all smoke free.

Default smoking on Carnival

We booked a few weeks ago and that was one question we had because my DH smokes. The rep at Carnival said that all rooms are smoking( that has recently changed from NO Smoking, Carnival was losing to many cruisers because of the No Smoke policy) and that the casino,bar areas and on the exterior decks are all smoking.
Hope this helps.

I was wondering about this statement. Are you saying that smoking in the cabins has recently changed?

Personally, this would make sense to me since candles are not allowed (open flames) and electrical items like irons are not allowed in the cabins.
I just have not heard this yet.

Carnival's ships and cabins have always allowed smoking. This rep was either new or very misinformed. The Paradise was the only ship that did not allow smoking in the cabins but it changed it's policy almost two years ago. Perhaps this is what the rep was referring to.

Take care,
Mike

I called Carnival 3 weeks ago and they told me that you are permitted to smoke inside all rooms. The man that I talked to said Carnival had stopped smoking in rooms but because of their business suffering due to smokers not being able to smoke inside the room they now permit it again. If you care to call I would be interested in seeing if they tell you the same thing. The man actually had said the only down fall was the next weeks peole complaining about the smokey smell left from the last travelers.
