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?

How loyal are you to your cruise line?

By Chris Halford

These days most major cruise lines operate a loyalty system and the more you cruise with them the more benefits you get on future sailings. Probably the most well-known is the P&O Peninsular club. Benefits range from discount on board to priority booking and exclusive on board benefits. But are they really all its made out to be or are we limiting our options by being loyal.Im going to focus on P&O because they are the most popular but a similar comparison could be made with other cru...

During this visit, she was also treated to a lovely weekend in Bali!As I sat looking through the pictures and listening to the stories, I was amazed at how much Singapore has changed. So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
