Why can’t people just go on a cruise and enjoy themselves?  Unless your the type that aren’t happy unless you have something to complain about. 

 

Misery LOVES company.   Esp during Wuhan19

One person standing there minding their own business smoking  (and in a smoking designated area) is NOT "killing" all the non smokers around us.   No need to be so overly theatrical.    Just stay away from the few areas where smoking is allowed if you're that worried by it.  Problem solved.   Oh .. and stay away from cars and any form of pollution as well.

My absolutely last point on this topic.I am in my 9th.decade of life.If you live to my age I hope that you will reflect on your life and say I wished I listened to Lenquixote66 many years ago.

I spent nearly 40 years in the Psychology field . This is not the forum to discuss addictions .We should be discussing our love of cruising.

Then just like avoiding smoking areas ... you should avoid clicking into and participating in this topic.  Easy peasy.

Why did they remove the CD players ?

We stream music from amazon music. We have been streaming music for 20yrs. We started with Napster.  You don't even need a CD drive on a computer anymore although I purchased an external CD drive to upload old pictures to the cloud that I had on CD. Netflix put Blockbuster out of business because people aren't even using a DVD player anymore.

Every time I read a thread/post about smoking in a ships casino, the song "Smoke On The Water" comes to mind. 

 

That was Deep Purple 1971 referring to the Montreux, Switzerland Casino fire.  The smoke could be seen on adjacent Lake Geneva.  I visited in 1977 and heard the whole story from the locals.

Hopefully the smokers on ships (if they even allow smoking anymore) will not set a ship on fire.  

 

🎼🎶 🎵

We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

They burned down the gambling house
It died with an awful sound
Uh, Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids on the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race

Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky
Smoke on the water

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty, cold, and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights, a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
Ha, I know, I know we'll never forget

Smoke on the water
A fire in the sky
Smoke on the water 🎼🎶 🎵

Yep. After I posted it I went down to my drum cave put on my headphones and played along with Ian Paice and the boys. 🥁

Vaping is under attack now too. Antis were mad that smokers found away around their BS and were happily enjoying nicotine inside again with no bad smells or combustible smoke. They have nothing to complain about but simply seeing someone enjoying a nicotine product offended their delicate sensibilities and they wen't on the attack again. Luckily one can stealth vape with nicotine salts almost anywhere undetected but now they are still attacking mail order and trying to get it reclassified as a cigarette. It never stops, they're never happy.      

Texas views vaping and smoking as the exact same activity; even raised the age limit to purchase and possess to 21 years old.

The brigs would be a more apt place for them.  Who even smokes anymore?

Most recent figures= less than 14% of Americans. Why make areas of the ship reek/have class A carcinogens floating for that small of a group?  Especially in light of Covid and whatever else may emerge down the road?

    I look at it this way- most people (at least the ones know) are not eating or inhaling stink bugs. But if a small percent of people did that, RC wouldn't be accommodating them with special stink bug areas.

 

   I can hear the protests now- But...but.... I like stink bugs when I drink/go to parties/gamble/go on cruises. It's my right to chew on a big ol' bowl of stink bugs. Stink bug inhalers have rights , too....
