My fiance has quit smoking cigarettes since our last cruise (yay!). However, he has picked up the habit of smoking a tobacco pipe every once in a while (maybe 2 or 3 times a week). Are pipes treated like cigars on RCCL? Will he only be able to smoke it in the cigar lounge? Or will he not even be able to do that?

I can't recall ever seeing anyone smoking a pipe on any of the cruises I've been on. I don't find the odor of a pipe offensive. I think it would be best to ask when on the ship, unless someone in this chat group knows.

Tobacco pipes are treated the same as cigars.

Peace pipes are O.K. if you all sit in a circle on an open deck.

As f-mattox notes, pipes are in the same category as cigars as far as where you can smoke them.

I smoke a cigar every now and then (I have a very large humidor full of stuff - some over 10 years old, but still good or perhaps better from aging and proper humidity controls), and I also like the smell of a pipe. But alas, we cigar and pipe people are relegated to specific areas of the ship. Actually, I don't bother with it when on a cruise anymore and go smoke-free. Now that I think about it, I probably smoke less than a box (20) of cigars in a year.

Thanks, everyone. I've never seen anyone smoking a pipe on a cruise ship either, so a part of me doubted that it was allowed at all.

I find it interesting that cigar and pipe smokers are confined to one spot on the ship, especially since cigar and pipe smoke is [generally] less offensive than cigarette smoke. In fact, many of our friends who don't smoke at all actually like the smell of the pipe tobacco. Oh well.
