Having just returned from a Baltic Cruise with NCL i can say that it was wonderful to be on a ship that was non smoking in all the public areas.

Not that I'm aware of. However I notice that some have changed there policy. For example I was on a ship 2 years ago and all bars allowed smoked on the prot side only, however I was recently back on the same ship and they had restricted it to only 2 areas aboard the whole ship and did not allow anyone actually sitting at the bar itself to smoke whilst at the counter. I commented on this to one of the crew and they mentioned that the attitude was changing but he didn't think there would be a total ban on that particular line as it was very popular with french and Italians. he did say that depending whether they were over in the carribbean for winter or back in sEurope for summer, they operated a different policy. personally i'd love all ships to be non smoking but then as a non smoker I would say that.

Beware of Thomsons as they allow smoking in the cabins.

Most ships have no-smoking in restaurants, lounges, corridors and most bars are half and half - what do you non-smokers want the whole world to yourselves? Long live the smokers we are far nicer people.

My partner and I cruised on NCL ship total ban in restaurants,bars and cafes(go outside).We are both smokers and thats why we booked cabin with balcony but we smoked outside on balcony and put cigarette ends in tin we had bought specifically. My partner even spoke to someone who was throwing cigarette ends over ship.We decide to smoke its our choice we know a lot of people who do stuff that we hate but thats their choice !!eg; band wagon jumpers, get a life , get a hobby, We're just off to kill a fox......

I am a smoker, we were on the Sea Princess this summer and the 'non-smoking'/'smoking' areas were clearly defined. As a non smoker you would be fine as there were lots of free seats!! Smoking was packed, so I think if business sense prevails ships would be wise to still allow smoking! I for one, would not go on a ship where I could not have a cigarette!! I also agree with 'Morgan' from Birmingham!

Smoking is only permitted on the port side of the ships, this was the case on my last cruise and i would imagine is still the case.Happy Cruising.

Peter Deilmann Cruises, who operate a small 6* ship as well as European River cruises offer non-smoking ships as standard. This is on top of great service and attention to detail too.

I didnt realise that you have to be a smoker to be a nice person Morgan, is the long live meant to be a pun. As for seperate bars for smokers I have no problem with that at all, as im quite happy for people to have a choice, as against a great number of smokers in the past who were quite happy to inflict on others in pubs clubs and more so restaurants NO CHOICE AT ALL. I have a number of long term friends who still smoke and have always had consideration for others. Thank you to Munro and Johnstone for your comments.

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...

I was recently lucky enough to spend 3 nights on board the beautiful Royal Princess sailing from Southampton to Dublin, and being a over of the recent hit cruise programme ‘The Cruise ‘ I had an idea on what to expect but actually sailing onboard her was a million times better!Once you board the main centre point of the ship is the piazza, which constantly has a buzz surrounding it, from line dancing, speed painting, fruit carving plus more during the day you also have various bar...
