U.k. law says that smoking will be allowed in places that are considered your home, such as care homes prisons and hotel rooms this must include cruise ships, as long as smokers have a bar where they can smoke they will be happy, that certainly leaves plenty of bars and lounges for the non smokers, live and let live that should please everybody and isnt prejudice against a minority.

It varies between cruise lines but in general most allow smoking in designated area.

There is not a uniform answer to that question, most cruise lines differ in some way or other with their interpretation of what is needed and expected. Maybe you ought to rethink the question according to what your criteria is........Nei.

The cruise ships follow their own rules - they are not bound by the UK rules even when in UK waters. To which cruise line do you refer.

Fully aware of NCLs rules that is restricted but still allowed in cabins. To comply with general world trends, smoking should be banned throughout cruise ships save for the odd designated area for that purpose. Smoking on the balcony and promenade deck should also be considered provided that sufficient ash trays are made available.

I think smoking should be allowed in designated areas. After all the smokers are on HOLIDAY.

Smoking should be banned on ships leaving British port.

I have found cruise lines booking offices unable to accuarately say what the smoking policy is. Were I an employer, I would ensure that I had sufficient staff who smoked to staff bars where smoking was allowed. Certainly I would NEVER travel with any line which did not permit smoking in cabins. I have paid through the nose for the space and wish to relax there. As for subsequent travellers, Saga Rose has an excelent deodorising spray, so good that I felt I had to apologise to the steward for undoing the ood work. All it takes is effective cleaning. After all, many ships are now using duvets so that the only bed-making necessary is a quick smooth of the fitted sheet and fold the duvet. The bean counters are ruining the cruise experience. I have no patience with the smoking ban. I recall being forced outside at S.F.Int airport onto an 'island' where the vans for the rental companies passed one a minute belching diesel. Ban diesel, better.

I'm an ex smoker. My partner smokes. I don't mind people smoking and would not contemplate a cruise (or cruise line) where policy dictates no smoking in cabins. Holidays are about fun and pleasure. Are we to look forward to a time where the nanny state culture will restrict what and when we can drink whilst on board?

The weekend proved another challenge for us with the continuation of crazy, unpredictable world weather. With the absolute devastation of Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean and Miami area of the United States still fresh in our minds we were dealt another blow in the form of a tornado which delayed Diamond Princess arrival for disembarkation into Yokohama by a day.The ship was due to arrive into Yokohama (Tokyo) on Monday 18th September, but was delayed until Tuesday 19th September at 2pm.

Hurricane Irma has certainly made her presence felt in the Caribbean. Florida was relatively lucky compared to the devastation that happened on some of the islands such as Barbuda, St Thomas, Anguilla and St Maarten. Most of these destinations rely on tourism as a source of income for their people and with the amount of damage to infrastructure and hotels this is going to affect their economies severely.In these times of adversity you can see how people rally round and work together to try an...

As most of you all know that I have a big fella called Looney, he is my little baby and my absolute world. He is a boxer and I have had him since he was 26 weeks old, he will be 16 in October this year. I remember the day so clearly when I got him, wow he was such a bundle of joy, his head and paws were massive they just didnt go with his small little body, he was so lively and loving he was just adorable.Anyway I got him when I lost my mum 16 years ago in October this year.
