There are no non-smoking cabins.

Every Cabin has been smoked in at one time or another. The last cruise, or 3 before that.

Smoking is allowed in the Disco, Some of the bars, Casino and the open decks on Starboard.

You can no longer smoke in the hallways, or elevator waiting areas, or public areas.

I want to make sure everyone knows there are not any non-smoking cabins.

MrOctober,

Those are absoutely beautiful. I am going to order a few and hopefully they will arrive prior to the cruise.

They also look like wonderful Christmas presents

Thank you so much!

my wife has asthma and allergies to smoke, the only time she had a problem was sitting next to a lady once in the casino, and we left really fast other wise our room and most other places were good.

Smoking is allowed in the cabins, however we have never encountered a cabin that had that "left over" smoked in smell. I do however always take a small inexpensive Reunitz Solid for the bathroom to handle "any kind of odor" that may occur.

Carnival has designated smoking areas on all their ships (and they are generally the same places on all the ships). They are listed daily in the Capers...not because they change...but just as a reminder. So as long as you avoid the designated smoking areas, you will be fine.

The smoke free areas are placed like the atrium, large and small theaters, Lido (inside dining area) and one side of the outside area by the pool, formal dining rooms. By having designated smoking areas, basically what Carnival did was eliminiate the "casual" exposure that they used to have as people walked from one venue to another. (and ~as someone already said~ hallways and elevators)

Since I love the piano bar and the only place that seems to collect smoke is right around the piano (the wooden sounder really holds the smoke right at the piano) I have used my comment card to ask Carnival to add an Oreck "odor eater". It is so small and quiet, that it would literally sit on the end of the piano and look like a piece of sound equipment. It would whisk away the smoke that rises, hits that wooden sounder and is them forced back down. Since Oreck's main corporate headquarters is right there in New Orleans, they could "experiment" on the Fantasy and Carnival could have some good PR for helping a New Orleans company come back!!

The Oreck "odor eater" would not help the rest of the bar area, but that seems to do a pretty good job on its own of dispersing the smoke. It seems just right around the piano itself is where the smoke hangs.

The good news is that the Oreck would not require anything other than plugging the unit in. No venting etc.

So use those comment cards for a possible solution that would not put any further restrictions on smokers.

I am horribly allergic to the smell of cigarettes! But I was on a cruise last year and the only spot I smelled smoke was when we walked by the casino! It was on the new Liberty so I'm not sure how the rest of the boats are but it wasn't a problem for me, in fact, we're going again in Dec on the Victory! 20 days and counting!

Thankfully I am not allergic however, the irritants in active smoke causes ulcerations in my throat and lungs that have lasted as long as 2 months. I just have to be really careful to limit the amount of exposure. Since I love the piano bar, I am so hopeful that Carnival would add that eliminating unit to the piano area. It would really be helpful to piano players who don't smoke, because the smoke comes down and right into their face the way the sounder is currently designed.

Have a great cruise on the Victory!! We are around 32 days and counting to the Fantasy!!!
