And you can smoke on any outside deck on one side of the ship. I thought it was starboard side, but some say the port side. You'll know which side it is, because there are ashtrays on that side of the ship.
It's not the cabins I was speaking of. All cabins are smoking...there are no designated non-smoking cabins on the Grand. When I was speaking of the side of the ship, I was talking about the public outdoor decks, i.e. Promenade, Sun, Sports, etc.
That will never happen. Just look what happened to the Carvinal Paradise, Carnival lost too much money, so now when she goes to CA. She will again be a smoking ship. Is smoke bothers anyone, stay away from the Port side of the Ship, Thats where the smokers are allowed to smoke. Also in their room, balconys, and the Casinos.And I believe some bars. Smoking bothers some people, and people who drink Scotch and carry their glasses around the ship, makes me sick. Yes my brother for one, drinks that stinky smelling stuff, but he does not smoke. I smoke but dont drink. I dont tell my brother stop drinking for a week, and he wont tell me to stop smoking for a week either.
When I go to restaurants and want a cigarette I am forced to go outside for one. If I am on the ship and want to smoke I will also go where smoking is allowed on the ship as to not offend anybody. If my smoking bothers any non smokers on the same ship then I would expect the same courtesy that I give to non smokers and go where smoking is not allowed if it bothers you so much!
