Wow, lots of pages but also lots of old info. Can anyone confirm the smoking areas on the Emerald? Thank you in advance.
Has anyone posted a reply to the Emerald smoking areas?

I was on the Island last year & as I recall, there was an outside area on the deck above Lido and Churchill's on the Promenade deck (comfy chairs and large windows there - great place to see the sea). I think there was also an area on one side of the Promenade deck outside at the rear of the ship (box on the wall).

.hi--we leave in a couple of days on the Crown .It's a 14 day T/A
I haven't read anything current re: smoking on this ship. I'm hoping to hear from a couple (or more!) about the Crown.
We also got word the Crown is just coming out of dry-dock--they've delayed our departure time from 4PM to 6PM.

We had sooo much fun on the Crown in Dec.! The smoking is like Deck 15 Fwd. Tradewinds, I think. It's awesome. Enjoy!!

Just on the Crown earlier this month. Smoking areas were: Gatsby's Cigar Lounge (next to the Casino on Deck 6), Deck 16 next to the Tradewinds bar (tables with ashtrays - some are in a covered area), Deck 7 aft on the starboard side (box on the wall) and at some of the slot machines in the casino.

Enjoy your T/A!!

Also, there is a little-known "spot" on an upper deck starboard (I think 15), slightly aft. It's outside, and was always windy, but great for that last smoke of the nite!

Oh yeah - THAT one!! LOL. I'm thinking I went up there once after dinner at Sabatini's. I usually used either Gatsby's or near Tradewinds since we were near the front elevators on deck 5 (easy run up 1 deck to Gatsby's after hitting the IC for morning coffee!).

Are there designated smoking areas provided on the Sea Princess? Pacific Island cruise?
Thank you
My mother smokes and we do have an interior cabin and I am 100% aware of the NON smoking rules

Thank you

According to THIS POST made today in another thread he main smoking area is on deck 12 on the port side. That's all I can tell you as I haven't smoked in about 30 years.

Shooters on Deck 6 is a cigar bar. There's even a regular bar in there (manned in the evenings)

Also open and manned on some daytimes also, as during NFL football season when there are afternoon games, or events such as MLB baseball playoffs , NBA basketball & NHL hockey playoffs , etc ...

Thanks now I can go somewhere without the strange looks since I like a good cigar.

Good to see that Princess has done this. We stopped cruising Princess 7 years ago and switched to Celebrity in part to Celebrity's smoking policy.
Once people get used to the policy no one really goes against it. Also there is no smoking in the casino on Celebrity either and that is fantastic. The whole ship smells and feels fresher.
With more and more people not smoking, the cruise lines will not be losing money just as restaurants and bars in the city where I live have not lost any business. ( No smoking in any restaurant or bar either inside or on a patio)
I suspect Princess will even get back some past passengers that left due to smoking being allowed.

We recently completed a cruise on the Diamond Princess. There was no smoking permitted inside the ship, including the Casino and Churchill Lounge. I’m not sure if there was a smoking area topside by the pool area. There was a small designated area on the Promenade Deck. On rough weather days the doors to the Promenade Deck would be roped off. Smokers would go under the barriers.
