I'm a laid back guy with a hot mess of a GF. she's a partier, up all nighter, drinker, smoker, you name it. We went on one Carnival cruise and she loved it but just wasn't my cup of tea. We came to a perfect compromise with RCCL.How was RCI your perfect compromise? Curious. Do you two get along at home? What makes a cruise different? Sincerely asking.

NCL do still allow smoking on balconies bu I would not be shocked if they change that over the next couple of years
Hello, first post here. I've always read cruise critic but never had the need to post or ask a question until now. Since RCCL has a new smoking policy I am presented with a huge problem. I'm a laid back guy with a hot mess of a GF. she's a partier, up all nighter, drinker, smoker, you name it. We went on one Carnival cruise and she loved it but just wasn't my cup of tea. We came to a perfect compromise with RCCL. HOWEVER, now that RCCL has the smoking policy I need to know which cruise line will satisfy both of our needs. Any suggestions?Definitely NCL. And check out their suites.............really terrific perks!
