Ida and Neil Down - Answered a Question by Gillen (03 Aug 08 15:13)

The smoking policies have been on the change continuously for the last two years with the areas where smoking is allowed being reduced all the time. MSC's general policy is "Special areas have been designated onboard ship for smokers." This wording allows them the opportunity to change their regulations whenever they wish. I think that you will find that the passenger reviews date from a while ago when most cruise companies were testing the waters as far as smoking was concerned and I am sure that you can feel reassured by what you have recently read. If you want confirmation of their policy why not ring them in London on 020 7092 2880. .... Ida .

Thank you for your reply. I still feel a bit unsure as the passenger comments I read were fairly recent. I have asked MSC to be specific but so far have no reply. Fenella.

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine.
