I smoke, am trying to quit but just wondered if there was anywhere on board that smoking was allowed. I respect non-smokers rights and never light up when I am even in the same vicinity as another person. I can go hours without one, but might want to have one after dinner (not in the dining rooms) but possibly in my suite or out on the balcony. We are first time cruisers and we forgot to ask our TA. I don't want to stir up a big debate over smoking, just wondered if someone could answer my question for me. I will accept whatever the rules are. Thank You.
Smoking is permitted in some lounges, outside on your balcony, or in the Cigar Bar on deck 5. I have sailed on the Explorer twice and really enjoy a late afternoon cigar on the balcony and a late night cigar in the Cigar Bar. It surely makes for an enjoyable vacation.
