This is from a July 16th newsletter I received from RCCL through my District Sales Manager:
"No Smoking, Please!
We will no longer allow smoking in our staterooms, with the exception of "on the balcony" for sailings departing after 1/1/08!!!
I know there will be many smokers who will disregard the notice but overall the smell of the rooms should improve as more smokers will be forced to obey the rule under the threat of a cleaning charge tacked on their tab. Did you hear of any rumors about Princess following a similar smoking ban?

There are times the odor is so bad I have to shut my balcony door. I saw a man light up a cigarette as he was leaving the Windjammer. When I told him smoking wasn't allow in the area he told me to mind my own business. Some people...

Maybe next time someone tells you to mind your own business you could tell them it is your business. That your an undercover fire marshall and if they don't put the cigarette out you'll have their butt thrown off the ship!

Cruise Fanatic, I did have some words for the man. He did walk right out to the pool area. His wife was apologizing for him. Some of the people in the area were clapping. Kind of made my day.

I have heard it said otherwise, but a nice sane response, Psycho.

I don't think enforcement will be a problem.
Disney and Oceania have been doing it for years.
Even Carnival enforced it when the Paradise was non-smoking. Now Azamara has been added to the list. This is getting common place.

I think it's great they're finally setting rules for smokers; however, it's a shame people should even smoke in the first place because that is a well-known cause of cancer. No offense to anyone, but I think people should CHARGED by the cruise line if they get busted smoking in a non-designated place...
