Am I overreacting? Smoking on balcony.

Recommended Posts

On HOS now.

 

My wife was going to read on the pool deck. We managed to find chairs on a sea day and some guy sits down next to my family and starts smoking pot. 

 

We bail on that situation and I send her back to the room to read on our balcony. When the couple next to us starts smoking Om their balcony. Which they have done several times a day. We can’t sit on our balcony without smelling smoke.

I would call security and let them take care of it.  You are not over reacting.

What Bob said.   No reason to ruin your cruise for something they are not suppose to be doing anyway.

Not at all. Almost all smokers are considerate but unfortunately there are a few that are not. Regretfully you are and we’re stuck beside them.  The same could be said about other things that people do, over and above smoking.

I called. They said unless they catch them there is nothing they can do.

I'd keep calling every time it happens.

I had to deal with balcony [chain] smokers on my last Allure of the Seas cruise.  It was a awful.  Sorry you have to deal with it on your vacation.

I've called security to report balcony smokers. They got right after it and put a stop to it. It's a fire hazard for the crew, ship  and passengers.

Agree with all the above. But I think 'Vaping" is worse...I had no idea the smoke those things put out until we were standing out on deck the night we were getting ready to leave Aruba and some guy came up and stood "right next" to us...so inconsiderate !!!

Smokers by and far are the absolute rudest people on the planet, not all of them just most of them. I'd call and take a picture of the offending smoke, not the people just the smoke.

Agree, follow up as happens. Last time had issue with Balcony Smokers first time Smokers got warning. When called again they were caught and Fined by Royal

As an ex smoker I find non smokers are the most offensive.

Call security when they light up and have them come to your door so they can see it.

Take a video and call again. If they do nothing insist on talking to the Head of Security, then the Hotel Director. If nothing comes out of that email the video to the CEO Michael Bayley. No way I'd stop until it stopped.

We had a similar  issue once . We infored our cabin steward who entered their room to make it up and he smelled smoke. He called his boss and tbe problem was solved .

No you're not over reacting. Keep calling. You didn't pay to smell the stench of cigarette smoke on your balcony.

What am I missing here?  Nobody has mentioned the pot smoking. Are you all implying that pot smoking by the pool is allowed? If not, it should be much easier to stop that than on the balcony I would think.

On Harmony April 2018, we had a guy vaping in the CK. I reported it and he was told to stop. Didn’t see it any other night. 

 

What’s with these people?

Following the rules is hard.  Even more so on vacation.

Hard to believe you had to point that out to the CK staff. 🙄

Was few yrs ago, right after Policy changed. only time had a connecting cabin. They'd go out and smoke while leaving Balcony door open, smoke would blow under the connecting door. Was really bad, just on Balcony wouldnt been such an issue. I could hear the conversation, heard what was said. Attendant confirmed what I heard...
