Haven't been on the Emerald in a few years, but looking at the deck plan, there's a cigar lounge next to the casino on Deck 6.

Sorry to hear you don’t like celebrity. We cruised on them years ago and loved the ship. Apparently they aren’t smoker friendly. Never been on any princess ships so that’s what prompted this topic. I see that there’s a cigar lounge next to the casino on emerald princess. Hope the ship won’t disappoint.

For anyone still looking for info on the Emerald. This was from a Patter in May 2018. Patters seem to be the most useful (if you can find a recently posted one for your ship)


“Designated sections of night club and casino...Speakeasy Deck 6 for cigars...Deck 7 Starboard Aft...Deck 16 Portside forward near Tradewinds Bar...Deck 17 Starboard aft (under Skywalkers)”

In Churchill's ... the cigar lounge.
It's rather nice ... has a real bar and confortable seating. Enjoy!

We sailed on the Diamond Princess in March and April. As I recall there was no smoking inside the ship including the Casino and Churchill’s. I saw smokers at an area on the Promenade Deck and Outriggers.

I know it is early in the game, but does anyone know where the smoking areas will be on the Sky Princess. Specifically if they are planning to use the aft of Sky deck for smokers like on the Royal and Regal?

We are wanting to book Sky Princess and hope someone has heard of the arrangement for smokers.

I am taking a guess, I would say yes to that.

From what I saw on the Royal and Regal, there was coffee there in the morning.

Also, bar service during the day.

Just off the CB. There is Churchill Cigar bar deck 6 forward, some slot machines in ththe casino, by the Tradewinds bar on deck 15, deck 7 aft on the starboard side (box on the wall) and a spot up on deck 15 (I think) after you come out of Skywalkers. I usually did Churchill and Tradewinds.

We just returned from a cruise on the Caribbean Princess. We were very disappointed that guests 2 balconies over smoked several times a day on their balcony, almost every time we were on our balcony. We complained to guest services a couple of times and were told to call them when the guests were smoking. As someone else mentioned, guests should not have to police other guests. That cabin had their do not disturb sign out while they smoked so I'm not sure a staff member would confront them anyway. Smoke detectors in staterooms and on balconies as well as enforcing the fine would help.

The smoking policy is clearly stated. There are designated smoking areas. It's extremely inconsiderate for guests to smoke on their balcony.

I do not smoke, but my boyfriend does, and occasionally uses a vape thing (clearly I'm not with the lingo)...I'm aware that there are designated smoking sections on the Royal, but when utilizing a vape pen, do the same rules still apply, or are you able to utilize them in your cabin/on your balcony?
