I have been reading on the Carnival sight that they allow smoking in the cabins. Is this also true on RCI? I have never smelled stale smoke in any of our cabins and was just curious.

Yes, it's the same on all the mainstream lines but you shouldn't ever have an issue.

Cheers, Neil

I don't want to offend any smokers or anything, but our balcony was connected to another, and just seperated by a small wall insert "thing". Anyway, the neighboring people loved to smoke cigars, and the smoke would travel into our suite, which was a nuisance. However, they would only do it a couple times on the cruise, so it was alright. But getting back to the point: yes, smoking is allowed in the cabins at all times, unless it is one of the "special" cabins (I saw only 3, and they were all down on the lower levels and meant for people with asthma or something, I'm not entirely certain).

I wish they would ban all smoking on all ships.It is a very dirty, disguting habit and most smokers do not take other people into mind when they light up.Whenevr I go somewhere I get stuck by a smoker.I say bloomberg for president and there will be no smoking through out them land! HA HA !Tom

I have asthma and have never had a problem on the ship. I stay away from that side of the ship. The only think I can't stand is smoking in the lounges. I think that should be stopped. Even just walking though bothers me. I do have to say I have never detected stale smoke in the caabins. Have only had one balcony cabin out of 4 and never had smoking neighbors so I guess I was lucky!

let me say first, I am not a smoker. Can't stand it. My wife smokes. When we cruise we purchase a battery operated air filtering ash tray. They are at wal-mart for about 10.00. It does not remove all the smoke, but it helps.

I believe those ashtrays are only helpful when you have your cigarette resting in the ashtray.

If they allow smoking in the cabins on RCCL, I never got a scent in any room I booked. If I ever do, I will demand another cabin. I have smelled smoke from people smoking on their balconies, even had to close my balcony door on occassion. I've also seen people flip their cigarettes off their balconies; this really irks me. Those butts can easily be blown into another cabin.

They do indeed allow you to smoke in the cabins. The reason you don't have the ashtray smell is chemical technology. I think I saw someone here post that the chemical is called Ozium. It just flat works. I've had only a couple of complaint in the last 2+ years about smoking. Both were related to connecting cabins. If you're sensative to smoke, don't book one unless you know whoever is in the one you're connected to is also a non-smoker.

Cheers, Neil

I can't stand the smell of smoke especially cigars.
Yuck!!
Let's hope my neighbours on Voyager will be non-smoking.
