I queried their policy change wef 1/10 and asked, what about the smokers who had booked a cruise on Summit from 20/9 till 4/10. Did they expect the smokers to suddenly stop smoking for the last 3 days of the holiday???? Now you have received notification that the policy change comes into effect fromm 6/10. Interesting!

It was changed back in May: Effective October 1, 2008 for all Celebrity ships, smoking will no longer be permitted inside any stateroom or on any stateroom veranda. Cigarette smoking will only be permitted in designated indoor and outdoor areas of the ship, while cigar and pipe smoking will only be permitted in designated outdoor areas. Smoking will not be permitted in any dining venue, theater, hallway, elevator or corridor. Violations to this smoking policy will result in a $250 cleaning fee being charged to the guest's onboard account and may also be addressed through Celebrity Cruises' Guest Conduct Policy. Cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco must be properly disposed of and never thrown overboard. A guest must be at least 18 years of age to purchase, possess or use tobacco onboard.

I am rather surprised at the rule "A guest must be at least 18years of age to...use..tobacco". It is one thing to stop purchases under 18 as in UK but consume? That does appear draconian and unfair on younger people.

By Steve Fuller

Black tie nights. Formal attire, smart casual, resort casual, semi-formal. They all have different names and all mean a different type of expected outfits.I get frustrated at the lack of respect shown by some people who think the rule doesn’t apply to them. That the’re exempt and can wear what they like. Absolutely you can wear what you like and we all should have a choice on what to wear at dinner but please pay attention to the dress code policy and respect it.This is for everyo...
