Not sure if the rules have changed because of the uk smoking ban since we were onboard but people could smoke on the right hand side of the ship in bars and in the marquee and on the right hand side of the deck but think that maybe you cant smoke in some of the bars now.

On deck 12 and in one of the bars only, it is like an english themed bar and quite busy.

Just returned from a cruise on Ocean Village. Smoking is permitted on Deck 12 and starboard side of deck 7.Unfortunely it is also permitted in The Oval Bar which is also situated on Deck 7. Hpoefully the powers that be will come to their senses, follow english law and only allow smoking outside.
