Royal Caribbean did not allow any smoking in the staterooms and limited smoking elsewhere inside the ship, normally one side of the room. One small bar had no restriction on smoking. Smoking was allowed on one side of the open decks.

Smoking was allowed on the Braemar on the outside food deck but not at mealtimes. However this was abused by some passengers and the crew did not enforce it. We therefore had to eat inside where there was no smoking.

The answer in my view on UK ships should be No! Any that claim to be UK market vessles should comply with UK law. Other nations vessles should be able to do as they wish and work within the rules of their nation. It is confusing when P&O say one thing and then before the cruise (Ventura) you get a letter statign that they have changed their policy AFTER the final payments have been made. I understand the problems that people have with nicotine addiction but frankly I want a holiday free of other peoples 'problems'. The bottom line is that if you want to know what the policy of any cruise line is you hav to contact them and ask and event then what they tell you may change before you board :-( Petroni from Sandhurs.

Things are getting tighter with regard to smoking areas. contact your cruise company about this. american and british ships have reduced smoking areas to as little as one deck and one bar. Costa was still allowing smoking on one side of ship in November Also be careful some american ships only allow smoking in balcony cabins. make sure your travel agent knows you are smokers and ask for the current restrictions. so if you have problems on board you can claim a refun.

Smoking is allowed and should be allowed on open decks providing people do not throw the butt overboard,i do not smoke but i do not force my views on other's and those who choose to smoke should be allowed to on open decks.I do not believe none smokers have the right to stop those who smoke from doing so what indeed gives them the right to stop smokers smoking.
