Here for your delectation is an excerpt from Thomson's web page: Smoking on Board For the comfort of all passengers, the main restaurants and show lounges are non-smoking throughout. Bars are divided into smoking and non-smoking sections. Smoking in cabins is permitted, but strongly discouraged. Hope that enlightens you .... Ida .

We are cruising to the Caribbean next month. Does anyone know what the smoking rules are know. We were on the Destiny lasy year, (same ship this year) and smoking was allowed in the cabins, in one bar inside and designated areas outside. I know people will not agree but i think we should have been told when we booked if there is now no smoking on board that this rule was coming into affect. Any advise will be greatly appreciated. Sha.

I can only suggest that you ring or write to Thomson or search their web site to get the best up to date answer because as I have mentioned this is a rolling topic and there are changes happening all the time. Sorry that's the best I can offer. .... Neil.

Thanks for that Neil. when i rang them they said the smoking policy is as it was on our last holiday. Having read conflicting reports on this i E-mailed them to confirm what they had told me over the telephone and they said they had made a mistake and smoking is only allowed in a couple of designated areas outside. hey said not all of there reps are up to date with the current policy on smoking. Saying as how we booked our Cruise 17 months ago you would have thought they would have had the decency to inform there customers of it instead of waiting until our tickets arrive and finding out in the booklet they sent with them. Am in the middle of an on going argument with them that they had a right to inform there customers but i don't think i will get any joy. I certainly won't be booking with them again though. Four of us have spent over £10.000.00 with them on cruises in the last 26 months, and £3000.00 on a holiday to Egypt last march. I will let you know what happens if anything. Shar.

Think you will find all Thomson ships do not allow smoking in cabins no.

Type your answer here...i e-mailed Thomson to ask which was correct,,they said brochure,it says no-smoking in any indoor areas of ship,cabins + bars etc.+ small section of outside deck.They say not yet updated web site(it has been out of date for 18 months).pity poor smokers who book on website + read their smoking policy then get to ship + find its almost totally no smoking.

What Would Be Your Dream Bucke...

By Eleni House

Did you know, that the Great Wall Of China can be seen from space?This week in the office I was rather excited for both for myself and for one of my customers. We had been speaking over the past few days regarding booking a journey of a lifetime for one of her bucket list itineraries that she has wanted to do for some time now. When putting together this type of Tailor Made cruise package, I always ensure we are getting exactly what the customer wants, as well as what they expect from their p...

Whether you are relatively new to cruising or a seasoned cruiser, you must have a favourite thing when it comes to cruising? Do you love the formal nights, is it the prospect of a new port of call, is it not having to do the laundry the whole time you are away, or sitting on your balcony just watching the sea go by and enjoying the peace and quiet?For me it always comes back to the same old thing – the food! I just can’t help myself at all. I spend all of my time just looking forw...

Royal Caribbean make some chan...

By Richard Smith

 Royal Caribbean cruises have brought some changes info effect this month with their on-board booking programmes. The changes I read about are mainly based on the US market and I am struggling to find out how we are effected here.One thing I have read is that Royal Caribbean will be taking the option away for people to receive their bonus on-board booking on-board credit on their current cruise and instead having to take it with the new cruise.Also I read that reduced deposits will not ...
