We were on OV2 last May and also OV1 in 2004. We are non smokers. On both occasions on arrival our cabin air conditioning had been set to the coldest point and the air seemed very fresh, if chilly! Yes, I believe at present smoking is allowed in all cabins. I suppose a possible answer is to have a cabin with a balcony - we have toyed with this idea but are concerned that smokers could possibly be outside on the balconies adjoining ours. There is definitely no smoking in all bars and restaurants on OV2 except for the casino bar and smoking is allowed on only 1 deck starboard side (and possibly 1 stern deck) so it is quite a good ship for non smokers. We had a great time on our OV cruises - we did find the age group was perhaps 40-70, which suits us as we fall into this group, although there were a few younger than this on board. Ocean Village ships are great if you enjoy informality, e.g. buffet dining, although waiter service is available for a small extra charge in 2 restaurants. Hope this helps you.

Thank you so much for taking the time, and trouble to reply. Your answer has eased my mind somewhat, Happy Continued Cruising. (We fall into the age category mentioned, the tail end!) Royal CC Lines do not allow smoking in cabins at all, which is great.

You might only get to enjoy a World Cup once every four years but you could enjoy a World Cruise every year, and that’s not as daft as it might sound. World cruises for upto 200 days may seem out of your league… but let me share with you some of the reasons they are not.When I started in the cruise business around 32 years ago, I often wondered who really did take full world cruises. My thought was that the cruise lines advertised these but the ship must have only ever been fi...

That’s correct! If you need to feel comfort in luxury, have a significant amount of savings and of course are free for 245 days – then this could be the cruise for you.
