    The drink package, is 24/7 ? I am just asking because on Royal the last drinks were at 9 ( PM )


    Huh?  We have had the drink package on both Celebrity and Royal and drinks were available, included in the package, all evening, even past midnight.  Not sure what ship you were on that had a limit??? Or are you talking about somewhere such as the diamond lounge possibly?

    Its weird, because I doubt that any of the spouses would be travelling by themselves. So, in my opinion it shouldnt be a problem really. Why cant the husband (if he is the "main" status client) do the booking to avoid such a problem? I think that it will solve all the problems connected with it. 


    Really??  I have sailed with both my daughter and friends without my husband.  Have also sailed just hubby and me so I happen to have the most points of anyone in my family.  To get back to the original question, we are all the same status.

    sure I have a couple of cigarettes when I'm in the casino on average 4 to 6 hours every night.  

    Right now rccl has close to $16k of my money between cancelled cruises owed to me and 6 future cruises and on every cruise my Dh and I gamble with a couple thousand so shouldn't I be allowed a cigarette and Enjoy it!!!


    What about those that spend $20k or more on a suite for that one sailing, shouldn't they be able to gamble in a smoke free casino if they want?  Silly argument isn't it.  Money doesn't buy you everything.


    While smoking is allowed go for it, just be prepared for the day it no longer is.  Whether that makes cruising no longer an option for you, whether you need to go elsewhere and "gasp" give up your machine for a smoke, or give up smoking while gambling is your choice so start deciding.  Sorry if blunt but when someone sticks to their argument with as much vigor as you have in this thread, for 4 or 5 cigarettes a night,  it's the only way to get through, give it up already.

    Curious to know,  If casinos were non smoking on a RCL cruise ship, how much time would you spend on a daily basis in the casino?     Would you go and say play $20 till you lost it (or won!) or would you stay for the long term - and play for several hours every day or night?


    Have sailed both Royal and Celebrity and see just as many people spending hours in the casino on Celebrity, which is non smoking, as on Royal.  While I personally don't spend hours at any casino, I definitely spend more time there when it is non smoking. As for the smoking section being more crowded, yes it is but check how many are actually gambling.  On the non smoking side just about everyone is gambling, makes a difference.  This is just one of the reasons we have been sailing on Celebrity lately.


    I get it you don't want it to change but I do think it is just a matter if time.  Whether that is thus year or not for 5 can't sat but it will be sooner than later.

    Folks... there are obviously a lot of questions. This information was just released. At least give them a little bit of time to push out their plans before adding fuel to the fire with complaints.  

    Unless you’re scheduled to sailing in the next day or two, don’t call looking for information quite yet. It’s understandably frustrating, but pushing for instant info isn’t going to ease anyone’s anxiety. They aren’t going to purposely leave anyone hanging. 


    Thank you, was just going to post something similar.  They most likely wanted to get the word out as quickly as possible.  If they waited to have all questions answered people would be complaing about the even shorter notice.  We are in unique territory here give them a chance.
