Default non-smoking policies

I have asthma and COPD. I cannot handle second-hand smoke. I sailed on the Paradise(Carnival's non-smoking ship), but the non-smoking policy is being discontinued the end of August.

I want to go on a cruise next January. I would like to know what ships allowed limited smoking. Also, could you smell cigarette smoke in your cabin from a neighboring cabin where someone smoked. I would appreciate any information. Thanks.

Suggest you check out Oceania Cruises (there happens to be an article about one of their ships on our home page). There is no smoking anywhere inside their ships, and very limited smoking area on the outside decks.

I know of no other ships that are non-smoking. Most allow smoking in the pool area and outside without restrictions. Some limit smokers to one side of the deck or the other, but it is not well policed and there is a lot of "drift". We recently were on HAL and the lounges there allow smoking...just on one side. Lots of smoke noted. All casinos that I know of have unlimited smoking, which is one reason we avoid them. When we were on the Ryndam there was a pipe smoker 3 doors down from us that I could smell anytime we were in the hallway. Some cruise lines do not allow smoking in your cabin. Avoid HAL...they allow more smoking than most.

Thank you for your response.

We are planning to take a cruise on the Dawn Princess. Have you ever taken a cruise with that ship or on one of Princess's ships? If so, how was the smoking situation there? Thank you for any information you can give me.

Sorry, but Princess is one of the lines, along with HAL, where I have noticed more smoke drift. Celebrity is better, but none are "Paradise."

Have not been on Oceania, but they have very few accessible cabins (inside cabins only) I understand. HAL allows smoking nearly everywhere, including the cabins. They only recently banned it in the dining rooms. Supposedly it is limited to only one side of the ship in bars, poolside, etc. but of course there is a lot of "drift". There is no limit in the casino, which is one reason we never go there. Pretty much the same on Princess.
