Some confusion about smoking policy with Thomsons. First they changed their policy to no smoking anywhere inside ship, then in July 2008 brochure it said you can smoke in cabins and designated areas inside but when we sailed on Spirit in August, you could only smoke outside on open decks. On our return I called Thomsons to check and they told me the July 2008 brochure was correct but you definitely could not smoke anywhere inside and in cabins. I suggest you call them and see if you can clarify the situation re smoking .

It's a constant source of amazement to me that smoking in cabins is still allowed, from a safety point of view , I cannot think of anything that is more dangerous let alone anti-social for whoever is following you on the next cruise. We spent two weeks on Destiny last year when smoking in cabins was still allowed and it took almost to the end of that time for the stale smell of tobacco to clear. If i remember correctly the only bar inside where smoking was allowed was the port side in the Oklahome lounge. Sorry if I sound too much like a reformed smoker and i hope you find my answer helpful........edge.

The alcohol was nearly bar prices i brought the drinks list back with me . let me know what you need to price.There are some smoking areas on board (deck 5 at the back of the ship through the oklahoma lounge. Deck 7 port side you will see the ashtray hanging on the rails.Pool deck one side smoking under cover ,ash trays on tables and their is a duty free shop on board .

July 08 smoking policy in the brochure is incorrect per Thomsons head office UK and it is no smoking anywhere inside the ship ( all of their fleet incl Destiny ) and designated areas only outside on deck.
