Re: How many people would book a non-smoking ship?

I would book a non-smoking cruise and have done two 7 day cruises on Paradise when it was non-smoking. I have asthma and really appreciate being able to be in a smoke free environment.

Re: STOPPERS

I hate to be slowed down in the buffet lines, too. The way I get around that is to eat breakfast in my cabin by ordering room service and have lunch in the dining room. I much prefer being waited...
