I do not see how they can easily enforce a no smoking policy in cabins, especially ones with balconies. I am a non-smoker and like the policy. I have had smoke fumes come in my cabins in the past either under the doors or through the ventilation system in the bathrooms.Oh, I'm sure some people will smoke inside their cabins anyway, and get away with it, but most people will obey the rules and smoke only where it is allowed.
So it looks like more smokers will book balcony cabins now.You make an excellant point.........if 30% smoke on a cruise, the price of a balcony cabin due to supply and demand just went up.
So it looks like more smokers will book balcony cabins now.We have two concerns with this new policy. The first concern is that it will become more difficult to get a balcony (hadn’t thought about the price yet) and the second is that when we do get one we will not be able to enjoy it due to smoke.
I for one, will be very glad to have a non-smoking policy. That has been our one complaint during cruises. The first cruise we took I stepped out on the balcony and the man next door was smoking cigars. So, we couldn't even sit out on the balcony without being inundated with stinky smoke. It seemed that everywhere we went on the ship outside we had cigarette smoke in our face. Of course, we still had a great time on all our cruises, but it would definitely make them more enjoyable. - cbDo you realize that the new smoking policy will probably have the effect of increasing the amount of smoke you will be exposed to in the outside areas?
