We recently booked a Princess cruise BECAUSE of this policy. We had our choices narrowed down to three cruises we were considering, one on RCCL, one on HAL and one and Princess. We choose the Princess cruise because of this policy change. We made sure Princess (through our Princess travel consultant) was aware of why we choose Princess over the others.

(Subject should probably say "That's minus two and plus one.")


Next time, check out other lines with absolute enforcement of very restrictive smoking policies (e.g., Oceania)

Wow, I have just spent some time reading through this thread. I was surprised to see smoking allowed inside, but each cruise line to their own

We are sailing on the Sapphire Princess later this year.
Where will the smoking areas be?
Are the inside smoking areas closed off?
Does the smell of cigarette smoke filter through the ship?
Is the inside smoking all day every day?

On Caribbean Princess Deck 7 - Starboard aft ... it's just one of those silver boxes on the wall.
Only good for a "quick smoke".

Jeep1,

There was no smoking allowed in the Churchill Lounge or the casino?

Thanks,
