Default Where is the designated smoking on CC Solstace

My husband and I don't smoke, however, friends we're going with are getting a balcony because the gentleman wants to be able to smoke...Do they monitor you closely or can he occassionally smoke out on the balcony?

They are very strict, first offense is a written warning, 2nd is a $250 fine and third is being booted off the ship at the next port. Expenses to get home are yours and no refund. The primary means of catching people is other cruisers and from what I have seen they call frequently...

Why would someone book a cruise on a cruise line whose policy he intends to violate.....

You might also remember that the bridge monitor's the balconies (looking for dangerous situations). I'd suggest your friend find the "legal" place(s) to smoke and go there if you're set on cruising on the Solstice.

While someone smoking on their balcony doesn't bother me, you'd be surprised how many people it does bother and they'll be sure to complain!

I'd also suggest you book with another line if he's not ready to quit.

Yeah, I might be in trouble for saying this but I booked Celebrity specifically because of the smoking policy. We were on Holland America in December of this year, 2009, and I said, never again. Too much smoking over there. I do hope that Celebrity is enforcing the smoking rules. I've never booked with X before and we've had a number of cruises, but we are ever hopeful to avoid the smoking. I do make enemies saying this stuff.
All the best,
Suse

Think that smoking is allowed on one side of the ship near the pool.. I too hate having to walk through the casinos (dont you always have to to get somewhere) where there are people smoking...your clothes reek..
