Yes they do, as Christopher has said. As to " asked if i wanted smoking rooms, is the tide turning at last." I think you are grasping at straws ( maybe that should be "gasping") . Regards. ......Neil.

Board such as this are a very important source of feedback to all cruise lines they do read them, the reaction of P&O on the Azura new sister ship to Ventura is one example.

Yes thankyou neil as i shall be gasping as i am booked for 17 days on black watch my 10th cruise with olsen (maybe my last) as a smoker for over 50yrs i do not pay £2000.00 for a holiday to be told i cannot smoke inside the ship or to pay extra for a balcony cabin. surely a small part of the ship can be used for smokers as i found it very difficult to find seats in smoking areas of black watch. it must be very satisfying to be one of the non smoking brigade and to feel so ,i shouldn,t say smug but cant think of another word.

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you? I think my first recollection was when I watched a film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman about two characters that fate brings together in a hospital room and they discuss the things they want to do before they die.There are loads of thing that you can have on your list – it does necessarily have to be about holidays, but I think the majority of ...
