Azamara has very restricted smoking areas.

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.

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...

By Nicola Milligan

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...

So, I have done a short interview with Jane, who has also kindly let me share some of her wonderful p...
