That may be but we were smelling cigarette smoke. Cigar smoke, while still annoying, is not as bad as cigarettes. 
 

I’m not like some who think entire ships should be smoke-free (although I’d personally like it) but it just seems to me more people might use the casino if they were more pleasant to visit just the same as most of the rest of the public spaces. 

I think we'll just have to agree to disagree about that one. 🤢

As I have asthma, I find them both a threat to breathing.  Actually, since the cruise line is definitely a for profit business, I am amazed that they allow smoking in the casino at all.  Lots of folks cannot stand the smell in there, and dont visit the casinos because of it .I would imagine that would cost them a pretty penny in lost revenue.

We hardly get off the ship anymore so I spend my days reading, unusually 3 to 4 novels a week. When at sea I break up the reading with some Blackjack in the Casino.

Nap, Nap, Nap , Spa, Spa, Gym , Gym , Board Games, Repeat. I went to Alaska on one sea day it poured.It was so windy ( I was exhausted from work) We stayed in the cabin , had room  service and watched movies. May I say that trip was so relaxing. I really did come back new. You could try a yoga class ( very relaxing) or other exercise class. How about hand at the international café , listen to great music and read something you dont have time for at home? Ping pong. Sometimes it is good to just do nothing. Watch MUTS. These are things I enjoy. There are lots of things to do  to. You could also talk with your travel companion and just reconnect . So many times in the hustle of our daily lives we forget to communicate like we did when we first met. 

Most of all just enjoy your days at sea. Going to Mexico and they have like four sea days. Ill let you know how they were in January.

Whether cigarette smoke is more offensive than cigars is a matter of opinion... even outside cigars have a very strong odor ... I prefer neither but can tolerate cigarettes over cigars any day.

Jeez...

 

The point was that someone was trying to tell me that the cigar bar was right there where all the smoke was and I was trying to point out that I know the difference between cigarette and cigar smoke.
