Hi everyone,

An update to this thread. The Spa Staterooms and Suites on the new Carnival Splendor are designated as Non-Smoking.

This is the first time Carnival has designated cabins as Non-Smoking, (other than the Paradise) to my knowledge.

I travel with my sister, I am a smoker, she is not. It has everything to do with respect for other people.
I know people dont like smoke around them so I walk away from them when I smoke even if it is a smoking area. It is all about respect for other people. I respect their right to not like it, they should respect me when I walk away from them to smoke.
I am not a drinker at all. I have no problem with people drinking, I just chose not to do it. I respect their rights to drink.

Dwayne, as a smoker I am glad to see the cabins smoke free, it is just plain a safety issue. I support that decision.

I agree, macmom111. I am a smoker desperately trying to quit. I think, for safety reasons, they should not allow smoking in the cabins. As long as I can go and have a cigarette somewhere, I am happy. I don't want to offend anyone and I sure don't want to be the cause of a fire! Most cruise lines allow smoking on the balcony of your cabin. I will go out there, with a glass of water to make sure my ashes go in the glass and my butt does as well. I don't want a spark flying off. I don't smoke in my cabin at all. It's better for me and my hubby, who does not smoke. One day, I will beat this addiction, then I won't have to worry about it at all!

I hope I didn't confuse anyone. Only the Spa Cabins are Non-Smoking. Smoking is allowed in all the other cabins.

Since the Spa cabins are meant for those who want to be close to the gym and spa, and therefore are probably more health-conscious, I doubt they will have problems enforcing this.

It is ironic that people who want to use the workout facilities also want nearby cabins so the walk isn't too far. You'd think they book cabins on the Riveria deck stern so they could jog up to the Spa deck!

Good point, Dave!

This "spa cabin" thing is new to me - aside from the proximity to the gym, what else sets these cabins apart?

They come with some little extras like "goodies" from the Spa. Unlimited access to the Thasso Pool and Steam Rooms.

I will be finding out what else in NOVEMBER!!!

When I hear the "drinking" analogy, I try to convey it in the proper context.

When someone drinks, the only person they are affecting is themselves. A drinker will not cause someone with Asthma to have an attack. A drinker will not cause you to have a migrane for 2 days (or bron. ulcers for 2 months).


When someone smokes, they are affecting total strangers against their wills. And unfortunately, labeling a room a "designated smoking area" will not keep the smoke in it.


A drinker is not allowed (in our society) to touch or affect a fellow human being in any way. You can't drink and drive because you may harm someone. If a drinker spills drink on someone, our society (rightfully so) treats it as a negative behavior. It is not allowed.
Stumbling into an person is not tolerated.

However, smoke "surrounds" (spills on to )another person like a drink would, if a drinker spilled it on you.

So when someone says they respect a person's right to drink.... I have to ask..would you still respect their "right to drink" if their drinking "surrounded you"? ...ie spilling his drink on you, falling all over you, or worse "hurling on you."

In essence, this is what a smoker does to innocent bystanders. They "spill their drinks" all over other people. But instead of just being a mess, it can be deadly. Not only to those with asthma.

Just like folks would never tolerate a drinker spilling his drink on them.....smokers expect us to tolerate having their "drinks" spilled on us. And if we don't want the "smoky drink" spilled all over us....our only option is not to enjoy the entire cruise that we paid for. No balconies, casino, piano bar, disco...etc.

So actions that a drinker would never get away with, smokers call their "rights". And I dare say if a drinker spilled their drink all over you and then said "it was their right"...
you would look at them like they have lost their minds.
