Queen Victoria is predominantly a non smoking vessel, however Cunard Line recognises that some guests may wish to smoke whilst on board and has therefore designated smoking areas on board the ship. Please be advised that all public spaces are non smoking except within clearly defined smoking areas. Outside, on the open decks, smoking is only permitted on the starboard side of deck 3 as well as the forward and aft areas of deck 10. Inside, smoking is only permitted within Churchill’s Cigar Lounge and the Empire Casino. On board all ships, smoking is permitted in staterooms.

Whilst this is the current state of play do not assume that it will remain so in the future as the lines are being redrawn all the time now so you can expect changes, without consultation, at any time. .....Neil.

When you say clearly defined areas, are any of these areas in a Bar. I don't smoke a lot but do like a cigarette with a drink.

Smoking areas inside ALWAYS have a bar - expect champagne varities on tap in the cigar bar and anything you like in the casino. The casino is one place they dare not make non smoking !!!

Thomson Cruise A whole new...

By Brad Smith

Having worked for Thomson for nearly a decade before coming to www.CRUISE.co.uk, I saw the company change dramatically over the years.

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
