Default Smoking Policy?

I just read a very brief comment on another thread about cruise lines' smoking policies. As an asthmatic, I am very allergic to cigarette (not cigar/pipe) smoke.

Can anyone give me a rundown of what to expect on board in this regard?

Great thanks!

Hi

There is no smoking allowed in the cabins or balconies; no smoking in the casino or bars or any of the restaurants.

I am trying hard to remember smoking is allowed - best check the Celebrity web-site.

I think there are one or two small areas of open deck where smoking is allowed but not many.

Hope that is of some help.

Celebrity just eliminated all smoking in the interior of the ship, they still had one spot in the sky lounge that had been allowed but that is now gone. Smoking is only allowed in a couple of outside locations, cigars and pipes in one location. Each of these is different depending on the ship.

Just an allergy to a**holes. I was just asking a question that is valid to my health. You didn't have to respond if all you had to offer was sarcastic derision.

Default Medical proof ?

People may or may not be alergic to smoke, I dont think anyone can make the assumption that people are not allergic to smoke unless you have medical proof. But I know that second hand smoke is harmful to all, and their is medical proof to back that claim up. I also know that if people want to smoke wherever they want then they should plan on a vacation that allows that. I don't smoke and I am very happy of the tight restrictions of smoking on cruise ships.

It's written that it's not smoke someone is allergic to. If it was he/she could not bear any kind of smoke, be it cigar, pipe, campfire, ship smokestacks, car emissions. The allergy itself is to one or two ingredients within a cigarette itself. Can cigarette smoke instigate an attack of some type? Sure. But to say one is allergic to smoke itsef is not a truism.

Okay, so the one or two agents in the cigarette itself can be allergic is reason enough to be considerate and not smoke around people. Secondly, second hand smoke is harmful to all people and not only that smoking near someone will put a smelly stench of stale smoke odor on peoples clothes.

I find it not only rude but selfish to smoke around others who don't smoke.

Smokers do not seek out non smokers. Thanks for the info, I certainly have NEVER heard of this before

The statement I made was meant to mean this, if someone smoking in area's banned on cruise ships that that person is proberly smoking around people who don't smoke, And yes I have seen it being done all the time. Wheather the cruise staff corrects the problem or not still does not make it right to smoke in banned areas.

However if I know a certain part of the ship allows smoking you can be sure I would not venture in that area.

Henry43,

Henry though I agree morally with your view, people who want to smoke should be allowed as long it does not infringe on non-smokers rights in any way. And that means it should not be smoked in public area's where non smokers can be found. If smokers want to smoke in their cars or in their homes fine, but not around people who don't wish to inhale the second hand smoke, nor people who don't want it on their clothes.

The Las Vegas airport has the right idea, all smokers must enter a enclosed area where they can smoke as much as they want. Just don't walk by it too close because the stench is horrendous. The only bad thing about that is if they sit too close to you on a plane then you can smell the odor of a ashtray for the entire flight home.

IN PA and NY there is I believe no smoking ANYHWERE in public places. Pennsylvania just outlawed smokng inside public areas. I celebrated when that law was passed. You can't even smoke in a bar.

I believe NY just banned smoking in any public park and beach, they also don't allow smoking in any public area.

I do agree though there should be a designated area on a cruise ship for smokers. Just dont try to smoke in a non-smoking area on a ship.

Why does a person choose to smoke ? What benefits do they derive from smoking ?

I began as a teenager because I thought it was "cool."I know people who say if they stop smoking they gain weight .After I stopped I lost 25 pounds .

Its relaxing. I've never smoked a cigarette but occasionally a nice cigar, especially when on vacation. As far as health issues I get a lot of exercise (just came back from grocery shopping by bicycle), don't drink, get my needed sleep, and eat my veggies. I doubt 1 cigar a month will kill me but of course I wish it was risk free.

Not saying it's beneficial healthwise. If all things that lead to cancer were eliminated, our eating habits would change, home items would need to be removed, and the list goes on.

To Aerospace and Ruthlessboss,

I seem to agree with you both. Though I dont smoke I do believe people have a right to smoke if they wish (as long as it does'nt infringe on people who don't smoke) after all it is their bodies. I can understand the relaxing aspect of it. I also do understand Ruthlessboss point that if you really wanted to eliminate cancer then most things people intack would have to be eliminated. Heck they even say now that water can cause cancer...what next ?....But with smokeing comes the added risk of getting cancer, most smokers already accept that fact anyway. I always say you should be able to do as you wish as long as it is legal and you don't infringe on anyone's rights.

If you believe that a person should be able to do anything they desire to their bodies do you equate that with everything ? Do you believe that a person has the right to take their own life ?

Read my answer very closely Henry43,
I stated people should be able to do whatever they want to their own body as long as it is legal. Taking you're own life is a crime and an illegal act.

Perhaps it should not be a crime . If cigarette smoking was declared to be illegal what would the punishment be ?

That would not be for me to decide. That would be up to the local, state or federal government to determine the punishment if it were deemed illegal. As of now it is not illegal to intake cigar or cigarette smoke.

I also think we are starting to stray off the topic of "A no smoking policy" on board a ship.
