I've been reading about the NCL change in their smoking policy. I'm looking forward to a cleaner less smoky ship in the near future. It sure looks like the other cruise lines will follow shortly.

Beginning July 15, 2007


Cigarette smoking in staterooms and on balconies will be permitted.

Non-smoking guests concerned about sailing in a stateroom that may have been previously occupied by a smoking guest should be advised of the following:

Staterooms with smokers will be deep-cleaned after disembarkation.

Ionizers and carpet freshener will be used to rid the stateroom of the smell of smoke

Bedspreads will be dry cleaned and replaced.

If the stateroom was previously occupied with heavy smokers, drapes, pillows and other upholstery will be dry cleaned and the walls wiped down and carpets will be steam cleaned as necessary.

Cigar and pipe smoking in staterooms and on balconies will be prohibited.

Indoor Spaces

All interior venues, with the exception of the enclosed cigar bars and the casino, will be non-smoking. Smoking will be prohibited in all restaurants, bars, theatres, meeting rooms, restrooms, corridors, stairwells and lobbies.

Cigarette smoking in the casino will be permitted.

Cigarette, cigar and pipe smoking will be permitted in enclosed cigar bars.

Outdoor Spaces

Cigarette, cigar and pipe smoking will be permitted in outdoor public guest spaces and open decks, where designated by shipís management, based on the shipís specific characteristics. No smoking will be permitted in or near venues serving food, the jogging track, outdoor sporting venues and childrenís pool areas.

Shipís management may also prohibit outdoor smoking at certain times such as during safety drills, tendering operations or while refueling.

RichC, Princess already does this. Costa as well. Outside one side of the ship was smoking, one side was not. On Costa, one side of the casino was non smoking and very few machines were smoking, those machines were by the tables (roulette, craps, blackjack). Princess only allows smoking in certain bars, no restaurants, and very few public areas. HAL just changed their smoking rules in the casino. I agree, most mainstream lines will follow suit, if they're not already there. I'm a smoker, trying to quit, but have smoked for over 40 years. I cannot stand smoking in a confined area and hate the smell of stale smoke, go figure Even I am glad they are doing this. As long as I have a place to go, I am fine, preferably outside.
