Default Smoking on the Pride

I am worried that Seabourn's smoking policy my make for an unhappy 14 day cruise!! We are in 04(OS) and detest the smell of cigarettes..Any opinions?
Why don't they adopt the Regent's or Oceana's policy on smoking?

You might want to post this on the Seabourn Board.

When it comes to the topic of smoking it can get very emotional so if you want to get at more of the fact rather than having a lot of people chime in about their views of smoking if this was me I would just ask that if I am in x room or x category will I smell smoke from my room?

It seems that Seabourn and Silversea are catering to the European market that supposedly has more smokers. During our recent visits to Europe, we have found the smoking policies quite similar to the policies in the U.S. Guess it will take some time for these cruiselines to catch up.

Hi Just saw your post and I too detest the smell of cigarettes and I am sailing on the Norwegian Epic and I am concerned about their (NCL) policy allowing smoking in the casino which is an open area mid ship. I have the option to cancel but loose equivalent of $1,000 deposit which I will do rather than be unhappy for thirteen nights. I sincerely hope it works out well for you.
