Here is my solution - When you want a balcony, book Celebrity. Frankly if you really really hate smoke, book Celebrity.
Enjoying our balcony on the Summit was such a pleasure to say nothing of the smoke free casino and almost everywhere else.
DW and I will hesitate before booking a balcony on any other cruise brand. This is not specific to Carnival.
One smoker several balcony's away can really spoil breakfast on the balcony.
I don't want to pay the balcony premium just to be annoyed. Still waiting for one side of cruise ships to be non-smoking.
Sorry - just needed to vent.
