Default Royal Caribbean Smoking Policy

As you all have heard, RCCL has changed their smoking policy to include non smoking on all balcony's effective January 1, 2014. This is by far a very bad move on RC part. They are going to loose a lot of loyal customers. Making a block of balcony rooms for smokers is by far a better idea. I will not be cruising on RC until this policy is looked over again and again. People pay a lot of money to get a balcony room and for those that complain that the smoke is coming into their room? SHUT THE DAMN DOOR YA IDIOTS.

It's about time RC started this and I am 100% behind it. Go Atccruiser. If you don't like the rules, go on another line!!!!!!!!

Passive smoking is as bad for your health as smoking is. Banning it on ALL balconies is the best idea they have ever had. The smoke will go where it wants into other peoples cabins or balcony areas, and as 60% is invisible to the naked eye, you won't see it.
It's like you are saying it's ok to blow smoke into a babies face! It's the same thing. All ships should be NON-Smoking through out. There are 4 people wanting to be in NON smoking for every smoker. Remove the smokers and you x 4 the amount of willing customers you get.

So conclusion is a) give up or b) shove off to another cruise company (until they follow suit)
