Default Smoking on Caribbean Princess - do the cabins smell of smoke

I have cruised on Carnival and Royal Caribbean in the past. This will be our first time on Princess Cruiselines. We are taking the Caribbean Princess in July

We are concerned that people have smoked in the cabins. We really don't like the smell of smoke. I know Royal does not allow smoking in the cabins. I don't recall if Carnival allows it but we never had an issue in the cabins. We actually miss the CarnivalParidse which for a while was a smoke free ship.

I would like to hear from non-smokers and get their feedback on how much do the cabins smell of smoke. After the trip did your clothes smell of smoke? Any tricks of getting rid of the smoke smell.

Thanks for the help,

Paul

I concur with Lisa, never noticed smoke smell in either of my Princess cabins.

The cabins do not smell of smoke until you light one up.

My wife and I are cruising on the CB in two weeks and have never been on Princess. I had the same concerns and asked my travel agent. I was told that they use some type of scrubber to take away any smoke smell. I think that this is a device that "scrubs" or cleans the air in the cabin but not 100% sure.

I have sailed on the CP and the only place I ever smelled smoke was in the casino - my hair and outfit smelled of smoke also. Our cabin and the rest of the ship was fine - no smoke smell. I've sailed on RCCL and NCL also and it seems the only place where I noticed the smoke smell was in the casinos.

Default Smoking Allowed In All Princess Cabins

I received my cruise documents recently, which include the Princess Cruise Book and it states that smoking is allowed in all cabins on all ships. I'm sailing on Princess for the 1st time this summer, and I too have this concern. I'm highly sensitive to the smell of cigarettes and really miss the smokefree Paradise Ship too! That was the best cruise ship I've sailed (11 cruises so far - different lines/ships) - simply because I could go anywhere without cigarette concerns.

I wish all ships had at least half the cabins designated "non-smoking".

Paul, RCIs policy for non snoking cabins just went into affect a few months ago so if you cruised them before this year smoking was allowed. You probably have had cabins where some have been smokers, Carnival allows smoking as does Princess. I have only smelled smoke in one cabin, it happened to be HAL. Obviously the occupants before us were smokers. We could smell it when we first entered the cabin but after about 2 or 3 minutes not. I really don't think you have anything to worry about. You will get the most smoke smell in the casino and even then there are a couple of non smoking nights for those who do want to gamble but can't stand the smell.
