Most ships have limited smoking to small very defined areas which you should find easy to avoid. No smoking is allowed in any restaurant, on any ship. You do not say if you want to go on OV1 or OV2. Their ships are different configurations and I have only been on OV1. I say this because on OV1 the Oval bar is smoking and unless you go out on deck you would not be able to avoid smoke if you walked through the ship on that deck level. However you can avoid this by walking through (from one end of the ship to the other) on any other deck. It sounds complicated but it isnt and all smoking areas are easily avoided.

We have just returned from a Thomson ship (Calypso) and the ruling on there (and presumably all their ships) is no smoking inside the ship at all...not in the cabins or any of the public areas....it was only allowed in part of the outside deck area which was easily avoided.

We've been on both of the ships you've listed and it's pretty much the same on both, there is nowhere inside that allowed smoking on Celebration, however there was around half of the open area at the back next to the pool that was allowed and all of the open promenade. I can't remember the rules around smoking near the sun beds as we're non-smokers. Generally though don't let it put you off, the cruises are fantastic and even in the open areas it is generally far less smoky than even the beach as people who avoid smoke ourselves I can say you hardly notice anyone doing it except where there is an obvious cluster of smoking allowed tables outside.

Living on a cruise is cheaper ...

By Dean Michaelides

So as the title suggests. Living on a cruise ship is actually cheaper than living in some major cities around the world including London, Sydney and New York. ( This is according to the Daily star so it must be true).A year long cruise setting sail from Southampton would cost from 24,000. According to one cruise company. Londoners could expect to save 5712 in living costs. In return they would be able to swap the busy tube and over priced accommodation for the life of luxury on board. As wel...

Could living on a cruise ship ...

By Sam Smith

Sam Smith's blog

I’ve heard theories that for the elderly living on a cruise ship could actually cost less than living in a private care home but I recently read an article which applies this theory to well, everyone – check this out!A recent claim believes cruising for 52 weeks could cost a staggering 35,000 less than living in a city. How does living on a cruise ship for a year sound? Taking 365 days out to relax, soak up the sun and do zero cooking and cleaning while actually saving you money c...

Fred Olsen & a few Guinness!

By Barbara Hopley

Barbara Hopley's blog

On 15th December we headed to Liverpool to join Fred Olsen Boudicca for annual Christmas Conference for 3 nights, the 1st night the ship stayed docked in port in Liverpool. This is a great city and the dock is right in the center opposite the Liver Building so within walking distance to the city. We didn’t have time to see Liverpool as we drove up in the morning leaving at 7am to arrive by 11am. Luckily the traffic was on our side so we arrived early. Myself & my colleague Teresa...
