Smoking on Barges/River Boats?


Recommended Posts

Considering my 1st river cruise. I am interested in finding out about smoking areas on cruises in France and Germany. What are the policies? Are there any boats that are completely non-smoking?


I cannot breath around smoke due to asthma, but don't want to be "locked up" inside if smokers have the run of the deck either. :(


Interested not only in the larger vessels (Viking/Avalon) but also the smaller barges of 8-15 people.


Appreciate any help.

I can only speak for Avalon, but they allow smoking only on the outside of the ship ... all interior portions are smoke-free, which is good for those of us with asthma.


As far as I know, most of the river cruise companies follow the same smoke-free interior policy.

Uniworld, Vantage and Viking all have non smoking interiors. Smoking only outside. Really nice for those of us with allergies. I believe Steamboats mentioned that Deilmann is also non smoking inside. Some European countries have followed Ireland's policy and workplaces are nonsmoking.
