Default smoking

I would like to get your opinions on smoking aboard the cruise ships. Do the rooms and/or hallways smell like cigarette smoke? It's my understanding that smokers are allowed to smoke on one side (starboard?) of the ship. True? Do people flick their butts overboard? I recently quit smoking and really want to avoid that stink. Please tell me that is possible aboard a ship. Yeah, my senses cleared up (pun intended) and I find the smell very offensive.

Mjm, congratulations on quitting! I really want to myself.

I wanted to offer what I know and what I have heard from others.

* Cabins/hallways rarely smell like smoke. I don't know how they do it, but I have never got one smokey smelling cabin. This was confirmed by my friend just this week when we were at lunch. She does not care for smoke smell either and never has noted it in any of the cabins.

* Side note: Because your ship is so new, that will add even more reason why it won't smell smokey.

* Usually one side of the ship is smoking (starboard by and large). Easiest way is to look where there are and are not ash trays. I have also noted that the smoking areas are beginning to be even smaller areas of public spaces.

* Passengers are warned not to flick butts overboard due to the fire hazard. I have rarely -- of ever -- seen someone do it.

* Where you will encounter the most smoke is in the casino area, so avoid it as much as possible. Also, lounge areas outside the dining room are often used for smoke breaks after dinner.

Honestly, I would not worry about it. Like I said, teh worst area is the casino, so if possible avoid walking through it.

By the way, did I tell you your ship is featured in this month's Cruise Travel magazine??
