Up here in canada second hand smoking has become a major issue. I live in a city that there is not smoking period inside any building that the public can visit. That includes bars casinos, and bingo halls. At first when they introduced the law everyone was outraged about there rights and what not however now that all the smoke(ha) has cleared everyone loves it. at the end of the day we have to remember that we choose when and were we are going to sit. I definatly notice smoke on ships however that is because i don't have that anywhere here is it enought to bother me not really, i just go to a different place on the ship. for the most part i would say that if you asked a smoker to put it out they will comply without a hint of resentment. That is of course if they enjoy your company.

Excatly.... I allways look to see who is smoking before I sit at a slot machine. I never sit next to a non smoker or ANYONE for that matter without asking if they mind first before I light up. I can sit on a plane for 5.5 hours without a smoke so I can go without smoking if neccasary (sp).
Ive been told "id rather you didnt" and have no problem with it.
I just dont want someone telling me it is their right that I dont Light up when I ask them.
I am the most considerate smoker you can find and would like to be treated that way.
I feel that it is no longer my choice that I smoke... Im darn well hooked... and really actually enjoy it too darn much to quit. and I agree That it is a nasty habbit and harmful to my self and others. "I" atleast try to live in Harmony with Non smokers
Just my 3 cents

Mr. O,
I wish more smokers displayed your courtesy and consideration. If more smokers were like you there would be a lot less anti-smoking sentiment.
Thank you.

There are plenty of designated areas for smokers. I am not a smoker and I am alergic to it so I am very senstive to it. I have never had a problem with my cabin. Although, on the Celebration, my last cruise. I could smell the smoke from the cabin across from me. I rolled a towel and put it across the threshold and it seemed to stop the smoke from entering my room. I usually take lysol and room fresheners to keep my cabin smelling clean.

Try the towel. It may be necessary to dampen it to be sure the smoke does not enter your room.

Also, at poolside, usually one side is for smokers and the other for non-smokers.

Check before you go.

someday soon, there will be a study done that ...

second hand crayons, second hand cinder blocks, second hand zoos, second hand insurance, second hand pictures, second hand flowers, second hand dogs, second hand cats, second hand dishes, second hand children, second hand churches, second hand wives, second hand husbands, second hand houses, and the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on...all will be bad for your health.

And I'm NOT a smoker...the world is FULL of second hand stuff, both cancerous and non-cancerous. Learn to co-exist with it, or buy a cabin in the Alaska wilderness. I currently live with second hand exhaust when I walk down the street on a cold day. By the way, I have some second hand skis for sale...

in reply to msubocats about co-exist well our son almost died from second hand smoke and i can tell you that it is scary, you do have to be careful around people, our son and i also have asthma, so moving to alaska should not be the answer, my husband and i did go on another cruise and over all people were very considerate in the casino and other places.

I've cruised several times. We are not smokers. But, you will smell smoke to some degree. Make no mistake about that. It's worse around the casino area. It's nothing like Las Vegas if you've ever been there. You will get people smoking out on the sunning decks. Some of the smoke will blow your way and then go out to sea. We have always requested a non-smoking cabin. I have never seen anyone smoking in the hallways. Hallways are very tight and long. I think you'll smell the most smoke when you get off your ship and go into town. Don't feel like you've wasted 5 thousand dollars. It's not enough smoke to worry yourself about.
