Don’t make the mistake of thinking that all cruise lines have the same smoking policies. Some cruise lines definitely restrict smoking more than others. Whether you are a smoker looking for convenience or a non-smoker who is bothered by second hand smoke, you’ll want to pay attention to the nuances of the different cruise line policies. Some lines allow you to smoke in your state rooms, others only allow smoking on open decks and not private balconies. Be sure to check your cruise line’s published policies from time to time, just as we will here at Cruise Talk. The cruise lines have been tweaking their smoking policies quite a bit lately, partially due to safety concerns, and partially due to changing social attitudes and land based laws regarding smoking.
Our new Cruise Line Smoking Policies” page summarizes the policies for your all in one place.
