Wow, that explains it. We weren't able to use our balcony for the entire week aboard the Liberty of the Seas, or have the sliding door open. We were wondering who would go on vacation and spend it sitting on their balcony, smoking, ruining the air quality for others. Now we know!

I guess people don't realize that the smoke doesn't just go out to sea, it gets drawn into other cabins that are down wind. I don't smoke, and there have been times the stench of cigarette smoke prevented me from enjoying my balcony. RCCL still allows smoking on balconies, so I have to tolerate it until they change their smoking policy. Maybe it will take another fire like the one on Princess before they change anything.

On a 7 night cruse, you'll get $200 off on a balcony cabin. Now it becomes a no-brainer!
Sonny, Is the RCI on board booking program similar to Princess where you just pay down a deposit for a future cruise of you choice or do you actually have to make a specific selection on the ship at that time?
