Dont think thats fair, here in Ireland we have had a no smoking policy in all public places and it has worked out fantastic, both smokers and non smokers find that it is much better, are you sure that there is no new law stating that smoking is only permittable on balconies and outside?
Also if I want to use the casino I dont think I should have to inhale smoke from someone else.
Smokers have designated areas for smoking in lounges and open air decks on one side of the ship. There is one bar that is designated for just non-smokers. For those that fail to obey the no smoking policy in cabins, a $250 cleaning fee could be added to their account.
I'm all for non smoking cruises but it's doubtful if they'll ever be another Paradise. The cruise ships are in business & it would be cut throat to eliminated all smoking so limited smoking in bars & casino's about the best we can hope for.
Let 'em know your feelings on the comment cards & who knows, it might actually help the situation someday.
