I have been on the Epic 4 times and hate smoke. I never found it bad at all on the Epic.

We have sailed on the Epic 7 times and disagree with statement.

Look at it this way, you lost a week of your life from all the second hand smoke, but ADDED a week due to the awesome NCL vacation you had! It's a wash lol.. I sailed the Epic and didn't notice it being any better or worse than the rest, but smoke doesn't bother me anyway. Could be you were on a sailing with more smokers

Funny; you must have missed a good part of the ship.

I was on the Epic in January and did not experience this at all, only in certain places which were well marked as smoking sections.

No, I am not a smoker.

 

Hope your next cruise is better for you. :cool::cool:

we have been on the Epic twice, and one of those times for 20 days and only place we experience smoke was in the casino other than that not a thing, nada, zilch. I am sorry you had that experience.

The ship is 1081 feet long and you mention 5 whole places and call it “everywhere”.

Do you know the meaning of “overly dramatic?”

I do get a kick out of posts such as these because they are so over the top it only proves my point as to why I will never allow a non smoker to ask me not to smoke in the smoking section or why I will blow smoke directly in their faces when they wave their hands like they are bringing in a 747 in the casino.

I figure your going to complain anyway so I might as well give you a real reason to complain.

If there are people smoking in non-smoking areas let the staff know, loudly.

 

If you feel the need to constantly walk through the casino, well, that is the smoking section, try a different level.

Yep, these are the smoking areas. The areas mentioned in red are part of the casino area.

 

There is a smoking section at the main pool area, but the rest is smoke-free.

 

Sorry you were bothered by the smoking. I tend to put up with the smokers as I'm on a cruise, and I like to gamble, so in order to do so I need to put up with the smokers. There are plenty of non-smoking areas on the ship.

I posted this for people who don’t like smoke. there is smoking around every bar near the pools no matter what anyone else says it’s true just got off there.

What?? :eek: There is smoking around every bar?? I'm shocked! :o

 

I realize that smoking is an addictive behavior.

 

I also realize that drinking is an addictive behavior.

 

But come on...who would have expected BOTH in the same area(s)?

 

 

 

I hope they never classify gambling as an addictive behavior or the casinos are going to be filled with people who gamble, drink, AND smoke!! Then what?

As others said, if there are people smoking in non-smoking areas, let someone on the cruise staff know of it.

 

I’ve sailed the Epic (one of my favorite cruises) and never noticed any smoking in non-smoking areas. As others point out, it’s about the same as I’ve experienced on MSC, CCL, and RCCL cruises I’ve taken.

 

When did you sail? What was your itinerary?

Did you bring it to the attention of staff when you saw it? What did they say or do?

 

Yes, if smoking bothers you, you should try to skip the deck with the casino. But there are many other decks you can use as a walk way to get to the restaurants you named.

I hope this is a bit dramatic as I’m about to go on the Epic and absolutely can’t stand cigarette smoke!

 

Sounds like it will save me from losing money in the casino as I avoid the smoke based on the rest of the replies, there’s a silver lining for everything!

I did a transatlantic in April 2015. The area where the casino is located, mid-ship deck 6, is open to other decks above and below. It's horrible to walk through this area because of the smoke. I think the TA was especially bad because of the many days at sea with little to do.

 

I'll be glad when all of the cruise lines ban smoking. And while they're at it, ban all the little 'comfort' animals. Service animals I understand.

Finally a true response and as some of the others said probably not everywhere because not in my room, but pretty much all the public areas are attached to the casino and bowth pools

I just got off the EPIC. The smoke doesn't bother me as me as it use to. I did learn that if I walk around the other side of the pool (the opposite side of the smoking section) that you can't smell the smoke. That would be if you are coming from back of ship (Spice H20) go to the right side. The smoking section is on the left side of the ship.

 

The night of the 80's party there was a lot of smoking happening in Spice H20 but the wind was making it go off the ship.

Some people should just stay home huddled in their safe space.
