Would you pay to smoke onboard?

They're specifically talking about smoking in this thread.


But, to answer your question....at the end of my workday, probably 2-3 times/week, I pour myself a bourbon on the rocks.  My "go to" Bourbons are Jefferson Reserve, Basil Hayden, or Russel Reserve.  Sometimes I treat myself with a much more expensive bourbon, but these are my staples.  I probably buy 750 ml of one of these about every 5-4 weeks.  They cost right around $30/bottle.  To me, that's not expensive.


Gambling?  Not sure how much anybody else gambles, but I know how much I spend.  I cruise 2-3x/year.  Those are the only times I gamble.  If I am up or down $200 in any given year, I'd be shocked.


Overeating?  I don't eat out much.  I probably should eat more fruits and veggies, but I eat my fair share.  I like ribeyes and will probably grill one every week.  Coffee, milk, eggs, produce, proteins....all in?  I probably spend $50-$75/week.  But, I'd spend that either way.  We have to eat.


Smoking?  Let's say on average you buy $50/week in cigarettes.  That's every week.  That's $2,600/year.  And, that's a nice cruise in a nice cabin you could have every year if you don't smoke or quit smoking.


Put it another way, if you just stuck that $2,600/yr in the bank, at current interest rates, in 10 years you'd have $35,000 (probably a lot more if you diversified it a little bit).


But, that's not the question asked here.  NCL is NOT going to charge a fee to allow anyone to smoke anywhere outside of the designated smoking areas, and those areas are shrinking.

I would pay more for a smoke free casino.  Casinos on NCL are my least favorite feature.  I can’t spend more than 20-30 minutes in the casino because of the concentration of smoke.

On Joy and I believe we had it on Bliss...the casino had an enclosed smoking area and the open areas of the casino were non-smoking.
