Explorer of the Seas has a cigar lounge. Its pretty nice with leather couchs and chairs. It also has a helpful attendent and a small selection of cigars. I cant speak for the other ships.

Brilliance has a nice cigar lounge also. It's open from around 9:00 pm till the last smoker leaves. The attendant was also friendly and helpful. The selection of cigars was modest, mostly Dominicans, but the attendant had a special stash of Cubans for sale which she purchased onshore. Personally I thought the prices were way too high, cigars I can buy here in NY for between $5 to $10 were priced between $12.00 to $20.00. I brought my own cigars, and enjoyed the company of other smokers every night.

I enjoy cigars out on the open deck, usually at night, on the back of the ship.

If the cigar lounge attendant had Cuban cigars he/she would be a smuggler once the ship enters U.S. waters. Not that the Customs Agents are going to raid the lounge or anything but............ ! You can buy Cubans in almost any port in the Caribbean but they are not that cheap. Fifteen bucks for a Monte Cristo or Churchill. And you need to be careful that you're buying a real Cuban.

Regards,
Thomas

You are right, they are not cheap, $19.00 for a Monte Cristo # 2, $13.00 for a # 3, $15.00 for a Bolivar Belicosa. Furthermore, they are nothing special and probably not worth the price. Personally, I prefer Dominicans, primarily La Gloria Cubana, however, in most of the Carribbean Ports you can't find anything except Cubans offered in the shops, that is why I bring cigars with me.

Yeah Id bring your own. Get some beads from www.climmax.com or www.bargainhumidors.com and put a couple tablespoons in the cut off toe of a pantyhoe. Tie it off and make like a bean bag. Hydrate the beads with distilled water and throw it and cigars in a suitably sized rubbermaid container. Presto one El Cheapo travel humidor. Maybe put a small piece of foam in the container to keep everything from getting thrown around in transit.

I use them in my cheap Thompson Cigar humidor at home and they're great. I just give them spritz from a spray bottle of distilled water every couple weeks or whenever the humidity starts falling. Very low maintenance.

More info can be found on the beads etc at cigarpass.com. Do a seach on igloodors and tupperdors regarding poormans storage.

Actually, I got a nice travel humidor from Thompson and it came with a small Credido as well as a humidity guage, it holds about 20 cigars and works real well. It was one of those $29.95 specials where you got 12 cigars plus the travel humidor and a Thompson logo hat.

It would be preferable for the majority of people onboard if you waited till the cruise was finished

I'm assuming that one may smoke a cigarette in the same areas that cigars are acceptable? if a person wants to have a smoke by the pool are they permitted?

Well said JPHC, some people just aren't happy unless they are trying to make someone else miserable.

BTW Alisun, smoking options for cigaretts are much greater than for Cigars or pipes. There are lots of indoor public spaces which allow cigaretts but not cigars or pipes, including, the casino, and bars and lounges.

Unfortunately they allow smoking in designated areas of all the bars, but cigarette smoke does not seem to understand it should stay in these areas, polluting the complete interior of the bars forcing non smokers to inhale secondary smoke damaging our health and making us smell every bit as bad as the smokers.

It is time some of the bars are designated non smoking, to allow it in part of the bar is like saying we can urinate in the shallow end of the swiming pool.

As a non smoker I am certain I would not want to sit next to you even if you were not smoking.

Ninty percent of smokers have the smell coming out of every pore of their body, one has to hold our breath if we stand next to you in a lift etc.,

Puzled, like the song says "Get over it".

JPHC, isn't it incredible how in a culture that supposedly celebrates "Diversity" and "Freedom" people who engage in certain activities can be attacked with impunity.

So long as the cruiselines continue to provide a place for me to enjoy a good cigar I will do so. The day a cruiseline says I can't have a cigar on vacation, is the day I stop sailing on that line.

I have been on 5 cruises. I do not smoke and I have not had smoke bother me during any of the cruises. I think smokers are much more concern about others (these days), then non-smokers are about hurting feelings.
