I am a former cigarette smoker, so I can understand the issue and emotions involved. But I have to say that I am pleased with Celebrity's move.

It's great news for most of us but now I'm worried that it'll drive the smokers to my favorite cruise line -Princess- who has yet to correct the smoke problem on the balconies even after the fire that started them to thing about the problem.

I am a smoker, trying to quit, but am glad they are limiting the areas. It is a fair policy. They will still have areas for smokers to go. I don't smoke inside my cabin, but have smoked on the balcony. I can understand not wanting people to smoke on the balconies, though. I am very careful and always take a glass of water with me, but it doesn't take much to start a fire. I usually would only go out on the balcony when we were in port. I am sure the other cruise lines will follow suit, and as long as there are a couple of places smokers can go, it is very fair and better for all. Maybe one day soon, I'll be an ex-smoker, I'm working hard to achieve that goal!

As the commercial on television states..

If you aren't planning to quit smoking, What are you planning?

But fair is fair...there should be a smoking area for those who smoke..but it should be hard to get to......

This is slightly off topic. One of our nearby towns has adopted a no smoking law for public areas. It has been very controversial.

As someone that also needs to quit smoking, the new policy seems fine to me. I have often wondered how they get the smell out of the cabins.
