P&O clearly state their smoking policy in their new brochure- read it.

The biggest fear on board a ship at sea is FIRE, sadly their are many foolish passengers who discard cigarette buts anywhere. Even on open decks you see them flicking them into the sea, if smoking has to be allowed it should only be on an open deck, preferably a no smoking policy is best. Norma.

Cruise ships sailing out of the UK should abid by UK Maritime Law. Which should be NO SMOKING, and not the vague International Maritime Law Geared for the americans. If they want smoking let them sail off the USA.

In the Contract you will find that the cruise line is responsible for the health and welfare of all passengers and that it can make and change rules which are, in their opinion detrimental to the health and welfare of all passengers. This is probably one occasion when what they say is what will happen and given that it is their will passengers have no right to recompense following their judgement of a situation. Fires onboard ships are notorious killers and a serious danger and on that aspect alone they could make such changes and no one sailing could have any right or just grievance to counter this. They are totally in charge and although you may not like this or any other judgement on a ship what they say is law for the good of everyone so no contract is broken. You could equate it to a ruling which says that for now on no lighter fuel or butane gas may be brought on board any of our ships. You may not like it but it is a rule made for the safety of all and in that the cruise line’s will is sacrosanct and no contract is broken…….Nei.

Did read on P and O's website in "cruise connections" someone cancelled a Christmas cruise for that reason and they have been told their deposit will be refunded. So at least you would hopefully get that back.

Read your booking terms and conditions they normally say subject to change,your bank does it with your account and credit charges so i would say no your not,their is no guarantee that the itinerary you booked is the one you will get.

I guess not, it was the law that was changed and P&O are a British Registered Company. Well done P&O, you get my business.

The world busiest cruise ports.

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

With 2016 coming to a close, and no doubt another recording breaking cruise year I though I would do a bit of research into the world busiest cruise ports and get some insight into just how many passengers these hubs handle. To be honest the numbers are massive!!I don’t think the number 1 spot will shock many, but the Port of Miami welcomed over 5 million cruise passengers. As a major gateway to the Caribbean and the Bahamas, with countless ship based there year round. Transport links w...

The Cuban Revelation!

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

No I don’t mean Cuban Revolution………Cuba – One of the most enigmatic places on the planet, is suddenly becoming a rather popular tourist hot-spot, but more importantly a winning cruise destination, a revelation, one might say……..Since the recent talks of a reconciliation between Cuba and the USA, the country has now become a new attraction for many a nationality.Of course here in the UK we have been holidaying in Cuba for years, and although it’s...
