Question for non smokers..... How do you find the cabin rooms? Stale and old smoky or fresh and clean smelling? From reading this forum for over a year now, they all have said that smoking IS ALLOWED in the cabins. That most definitely alarms us big time. Other than second hand smoke it's self the only other worse thing is the stale musty smell of smoke in a hotel room that has been smoked in time after time. Are the cabins the same? Is there the slightest smell of stale old smoke?

I've been on three cruises and am a non-smoker. I did not smell any old stale smoke in our rooms.They do a good job of masking it I guess!

Are you sure you can smoke in the cabins?

dhronick-

On all of our cruises, we have never been in a cabin that smelled of smoke. They change out all the linens and wipe down all the surfaces after each cruise, so no t much of any smoke smell has a chance of remaining IF there is any.

I wish the same could be said about hotel rooms I have stayed in that were smoking rooms but were all that was available. Even after they are cleaned, you still smell smoke.

I would not worry about it. Even on the old ships I did not smell any smoke in the cabin. And I would think that after 8 cruises, we would have had to have followed a smoker on one of them. Normally, the only place you will smell smoke is the casino and some of the bar areas.

yes...all cabins can be smoked in. They do a wonderful job of getting rid of the after-smoke smell from cruise to cruise.

I think our last cruise was # 28, but anyway I never smell smoke in our cabins. The lounges and other public areas is another story.I really liked the Paradise for that reason.One thing I will say positive about Celebrity is the fact that they have thier cigar bars on the outside walls of the ship with huge exhaust fans sucking the smoke out. I wish Carnival would do something like that.The smoking rules should be more strictly enforced I believe.

My wife is a non smoker and well I am a Smoker and I don’t smoke in my cabin… my wife don’t like it and also I don’t want my wife to be second hand smoker…but that’s just me. She respect that I like to smoke and is not much trouble with her.
In Puerto Rico there is a new law against smoking, they don’t let smokers or well anyone to smoke in closes public areas so I already adapt to this kind of situations also…
The only situation we have had with smoking odors in cabins, was at the Adventure (AOS) poor service cleaning…at least this kind of things.

Just a note:

I smoke in my balcony, is open air and I usually do it when my wife is sleeping at 12 am at my house and I usually do the same in my cabin at the ship. This way I don’t have to bother anyone but I respect the nonsmoker people and their rights, but sadly in Puerto Rico, I can’t say the same for them they usually get picky with me telling me is a bad habit, that I should change etc. and they keep trying to change my ways…

Good for your wife! Hate the smell of smoke. Glad it is now non smoking in public places here in England.

Can anyone tell me what it is like around the pools. Not only am I a nonsmoker but I am very allergic to the smoke. I was promised by Carnival Customer service that we would not have an issue in our cabin, glad to hear that they were telling the truth!

As others have stated, I have been on 5 cruises and have never smelled smoke in the cabin - the only exception was when I had a balcony cabin on the Victory, I could smell the smoke from other people while on the balcony or when the balcony door was open. Other than that I have never had any lingering smoky smell
