Default Smoking on Princess Ships

Are people allowed to smoke on Princess Cruise Ships?

I'm travelling on the Sapphire next year and can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke.

Don't want to end up getting a cabin that has been smoked in.

If people can soke, where is it permitted? Hopefully not in dining areas. A trip a few years to UK was a real eye (or perhaps nose!) opener. People just smoke everywhere there - I am in Australia and we just don't do it anywhere near as much as the UK.

Thanks,

Dale.

Dale,
All of the major cruise lines, Princess included, allow smoking in cabins. They also designate non-smoking on one side of the ship out on the deck . No-smoking in any eating area but the casino (big smoking area) and the disco and such are at least part smoking.
We haven't found it to be a problem and we too, do not like the smell of smoke.
Happy sailing,
Sea Angel

The dining rooms are most definately non-smoking.No smoking in the hallways and interior public areas - smoking is allowed in the casinos and bars, on out on deck on one side of the ship. People do smoke in their cabins, but mostly out on the balcony. Have yet to be in a Princess stateroom that smelled of smoke when we were in it. Very good ventilation systems, especially on the newer ships. I am also very sensitive to smoke and haven't found it be a problem at all.
I have observed that Europeans smoke more than Americans.

What about cigar smoking? My husband enjoys a fine cigar periodically. Is it allowed on the balconies outside of mini suites - or only in the cigar bar (Churchill's) on Princess Sapphire? Has anyone had any experience with cigar smoke on Princess Diamond? Does anyone have any information about any of this? Thanks

You can smoke cigars on your balcony and at the cigar bar. My recomendation for your husband is..if he wants to smoke on your balcony, please be courteous. (not that he wouldn't be). So many folks pay alot on $$ to enjoy their balcony and the cigar smoke can be offensive.
Happy Sailing,

I've been known to have a smoke or two. Yes, I know... I'm one who will go out of their way to NOT offend the non-smokers, It's just my nature. Now, a few suggestions...
Use the "Cigar Bar", when apropriate or the smokers area. On Celebrity, it was the Starboard side (I think), that was for the smokers. If you're on your balcony, I used an empty water bottle, half full of water, to put out the stub, filter, end of smoke, butt (NO ROACHES, DUDES, DON'T GO THERE!) :-) NEVER, NEVER, NEVER THROW THE BUTT over the side, either in port or under way. Chances are, it will end up somewhere you don't want it to end up ( on a balcony, on a deck, in someone's hair, etc)... you get the picture. It's just not fitting to do that. It's a small space that we ALL have to live in. It's OUR vacation (albeit with 2600 or so of our closet firends). We CAN all enjoy this, with a bit of thought on everyone's part. If the smoke's offensive, say so in a FRIENDLY manner, the smokers can adjust. Guys, if it's a cigar and it's in the wee hours..., put on the robe and head to the common area ( where the rest of us will be) and enjoy it. You'll probably meet some new cigar friends ( I couldn't spell Aficionados! ). Thanks...
Robert
