Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Jones (13 Oct 08 15:14)

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.

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.

Travelling the Globe!

By Stacey Williams

I am so excited for tomorrow as I have been invited to London for the annual Globe Travel Awards. I have never been to an awards ceremony before so I was over the moon to receive an invite from the amazing MSC Cruises. My plan is to pack in the morning just before travelling as we have been so busy at Cruise HQ I have had no time to organize anything. My train is booked for 9am from Dumfries to Carlisle and then onto Euston. I will (hopefully) arrive at around 1pm. I then need to navigat...

 Back in october 2016, 5 colleagues and myself escorted a group from the MSC Splendida to Lake Garda and Venice.This was the first time I had been to Lake Garda or known locally as Lago di Garda. I was really looking forward to seeing this region of Italy and the famous lake that bring millions of visitors each year to this area of northern Italy.The lake is the largest in Italy and also has numerous small islands, from the main towns you can take the lake ferry which does a round trip s...
