After the fire on the Sapphire Princess.... don't smoke in your room at all and don't even think about tossing a cigarette off off a balcony. Way too dangerous. Would you want to sink because of a cigarette?

We are not smokers, but I would not suggest smoking in your cabin for both safety and comfort reasons. Unless you have a balcony room there is no way to ventilate your room, you will be smoking your way into a fog.
On Carnival, smoking is still allowed in the cabins, but not in the hallways, so just be aware that you will need to keep your cabin door closed.
Carnival has ample designated smoking areas through out the ship.
On the Fantasy, there is the Piano Bar (by the middle dining room),
Disco (Promenade), Casino (Promenade), One side of the back bar before you enter the Karaoke Lounge. (Karaoke Lounge is nonsmoking).
Outside by the Pool, you have smoking on the Starboard side.
Carnival implemented designated smoking areas several years ago to stop walking from venue to venue with a lit cigarette.
A reminder of these areas are printed in the Capers every day.
Be aware that IF Camp Carnival is using a designated smoking area during the day...no smoking is allowed while the children are there.
Also, some piano bar entertainers that do not smoke place the small "no smoking" signs around the piano itself...but the rest of the bar is still a smoking area.

If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!
Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
i dont recommend smoking in the rooms. Hubby did this in the bathroom and it made me sooooooooo mad. I smoke too and it was like sleeping in an ashtray. I threatened his life after that....
save it for the casino or in the smoking areas on deck...or ofcourse the balcony, which is the best place to keep it away from others. just dont flick your cig off the balcony...one person did that once and it fell back into our balcony while i was reading
Hi Darlene remember you well from my cigar smoking question you were nice to us in the reply. Couldn't figure out why we got such negative feedback on one cigar a night vs cig smoking here on this post. I don't smoke myself so to me they are just about the same.
Some people just enjoy complaining. I had 2 employees arguing once abot smoking. One told the other that she could tell if someone was a smoker by the smell of their clothes. The other, a smoker, told her, "and I can tell a non-smoker when I 1st meet them by their constant complaining about things". They went on to argue for days.
The Spa on the Splendor is supposed to be the largest on any CCL ship. When we booked our cabins, we chose the location and found out later that they are designated Spa cabins with some perks and some drawbacks, (if you want to call it that) that our cabin is a no smoking cabin. As I said, CCL called to make sure I knew this.
So, if ours is a NS cabin, I am guessing other cabins allow smoking. On the Freedom, there is even a cigar bar where you can buy good cigars.
I can't remember if the public areas on the ship allow smoking or not, but I am sure the Casino would allow it.
Spanky the bad responses came about when I asked whether my Kenny could smoke a cuban cigar on the balcony of our suite. l am a non smoker and the dude does not smoke inside my home but does smoke one cigar nightly outside on our back screened in porch. I got attacked left and right and he would not be blowing smoke into anyones room or balcony and most likely the times he would smoke he would make sure it would not offend anyone. I could not for the life of me understand some of the people who commented on it because alot of them said they would be smoking cigarettes on their balconys so it made no sense to me. Redwitch and a few others were the only understanding out of the bunch. Long story short Kenny will be enjoying his cigar whenever his little heart desires I'll make sure of that but he will make sure no one gets offended by it either.
With having all 6 balconies on the AFT of the ship, I don't think that anyone is going to say anything to us. Out of these 6 cabins 2 people smoke. There are more of us in some of the inside cabins who smoke also...we were going to let them smoke on our balcony. I am sure they will smoke in there cabins also, although I don't know this for a fact? In the past, everyone has been considerate to the rest of the group and has smoked outside.
I didn't see a problem with it and I am a non-smoker. Or should I say...a never smoker?
I guess we will just have to see what, if anything will be said?
I am quite sure that if your S O smokes, he will be very considerate to you and to others.
