Find Your Cruise
Thankfully, No. I have heard that the only place where they will allow smoking in the future will be the funnel. ... Neil.
The day the ships ban all smoking inside will be the day the lines will start to go bankrupt. Take no notice of Neil. In fact Thomsons banned smoking in cabins but rumour has it they have reversed this policy. Island Star two weeks ago had smoking sides of ships absolutely crammed with passengers, Non smoking sides plenty of places to sit, that tells you something.
We went on royal caribbean vision of seas year last May and could smoke in one of the bars .
You can still smoke in the Golden Lion Pub - well we did in august of this year(although only a small part and no longer at the bar) on the Queen MaryII - also in th casino (although again not at the bar). When we went last year you could smoke in part of the Chart Room, part of the Golden Lion and also part of the Commodore Lounge (great for coffee in the morning) but when we went a few weeks ago it had changed to only the Golden Lion. Guess what the 'small designated area' was packed but of course many of the 'non smokers' took up the tables even though most were empty at the non-smoking end! Then they moaned! There was a lot of very displeased people and a couple of multi-millionaire type americans' having a real go. One said that he had travelled with Cunard for forty years and would NOT be coming back so that may change a few minds! There was also a couple of places on the Navigator of the Seas but that may well have changed also. You can still smoke on the balcony of your room on the QMII ---- but for how long!
We are going on the Atemis which has stopped smoking inside the ship which was altered to this after we had booked. I was not pleased at all if the weather is bad and you are unable to go outside where are we supposed to have a cigarette??????? I hope P&O realise they will loose passengers by the boat load(pardon the pun) and they deserve to if they ban smoking totally inside the ships.
I like to sail with Princess as far as i am aware you can still smoke in at least 1 bar and the casino's.
P&o have no idea what they are doing regarding smoking the christmas and new year cruises are no smoking but the world cruise is smoking on oriana then april its back to no smoking. Cancel the new ship it will not be needed.
Carnival Glory have 5 smoking bars & you can smoke on the outside decks on one side of the ship.
