I hope not!!!
Sooner banned completely the bette.
We are booked to go on Ventura next May - I don't know about smoking, but my daughter came back this week from a cruise on P&O's Oceana and they started a trial smoking ban at the end of the cruise, so I would'nt be surprised if by next year there will possibly be a ban.
Having known p.o. i should think only on deck i on ventury may 5th.
Smoking should be banned both inside AND out - don't spoil the experience for everyone else!
I hope that in due course that smoking is BANNED all together on ships.Smoking definitely should be banned in cabins. As well as being annoying to non smokers it could be dangerous and cause a fire. What about the Princess ship that was just off Jamaica the other year, a fire started on the balcony and people had to be evacuated. We are going on the Ventura hopefully not at the same time if you are a heavy smoker. Please have some consideration for non smokers!! I think you have started something with asking this question.
Yes but limited areas. Understand when you arrive at P&O Ships there is now a leaflet on smoking policy. I think you will find smoking is permitted in all cabins and balconies, on open decks one side only (port I think) and very limited smoking in one or two public lounges. I know on Artemis- which we are going on- it is only the port side of Horizon Lounge
