The Artemis only allowed smoking portside and even then there were not that many.Some cabins are smoking as well. I guess our average age of 60 years accounted for this.i.e. most people in our age category have either given up the weed or sadly died/are not very well as a result of their addiction. I may be wrong but I am almost sure that there is to be a complete ban on smoking on the Artemis and another P and O ship from October.Hurrah! May be worth checking.

If you have reached the age of 60 you are old enough to know better than to listen to all this rubbish about all and sundry dying of tobacco smoking. Maybe you,ve been watching too many anti-smoking government ads aimed at the children!! The one thingI will agree on that at least p&o have made their policies clear and anyone that wants to whinge and moan about everything and everybody can now clearly all go on the same ships and let everyone else enjoy their holidays with companies that appreciate them.

Really??? Which Thomson ship were you on because i have been on thomson destiny and thomson celebration this year and found the smoking policies were very strict with minimal places to smoke - even on deck and to the extent you cant buy matches or a lighter on board! I agree smoking in eating places shouldn't be allowed and that there should be smoking and smoke free areas for consideration of ALL passengers on board ... but it would be nice to find a ship where you can smoke freely on deck so that I may enjoy my holiday to the fullest.

Poor Lad ! Try ocean Village. They allow smoking in their Pub (the Oval)and it is full of happy people who also spill out onto the one side of the promenade deck which is smoking. There you can stroll the whole deck stopping to chat with other like minded people or even have drinks at the teak tables and chairs outside the Oval pub. Unless of course you are inside watching the footy or sport ie. F1. Takes you back to how it used to be. Happy days.

It Is an going problem, hygiene on board! And something I hate people not washing hands, on a ship this can cause huge problems, having recently come back from a Celebrity Cruise, I loved the fact they have staff working to make sure you do the basic things! In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

Norwegian Cruise Line to Add ...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
