I am a ex-smoker and I have found from experience that it is a selfish addiction that is afflicted on non smokers . I agree that they should be put in the dingy too When I smoked I didn't think or care of it affecting other people and I thought if I was outside it didn't affect anyone else boy was I wrong. So I guess if you get a room with a veranda you have to deal with the room smelling like smoke to. What a shame

I really enjoy sitting out on my balcony and I really don't want to be breathing that smoke, it is so unhealthy.

I think it's because when the ship is moving, the smoke goes out and away.....most of the time. On a hotel balcony, it will go next door, or above, more often than not.

I don't have a problem with making Deck 10 the smoking area, as the wind up there would surely disperse the smoke rather quickly, and maybe the smoker as well.

Wow....you guys are so mean. I'm certain that you must be absolutely perfect in order to throw stones like that.


There are a lot of disgusting things that people have to put up with when everyone is grouped together on a ship. Body odor, too much perfume, crappy diapers, someone passing gas in the cramped elevator......should we have a "Stink Police" that tosses all offenders overboard????


And before I hear the age-old "Second hand smoke kills" routine......name me ONE person who died from it and it's documented. Asthmatics are incredibly irritated by it, yes....but they're also irritated by soaps and too much perfume. How come no one on here ever complains about that?

For those of us with children that we will eventually bury, we treasure every minute with them, and would rather that a nearby smoker not take any more minutes from us than necessary.

Secondhand Smoke Exposure Worsens Cystic Fibrosis
ScienceDaily (Jan. 30, 2008) — Researchers at Johns Hopkins have discovered the first genetic evidence that secondhand smoke can worsen lung disease. The report describes one gene variation that can weaken lung function as well as shorten the lifespan of those affected by cystic fibrosis and also are exposed to secondhand smoke.

What Does Second-Hand Smoke Do to People with CF?
Studies have shown that exposure to second-hand smoke can cause problems for people with cystic fibrosis above and beyond the problems that it causes for other people.

Effects on lung development and allergies
There is also some evidence that secondhand smoking affects lung growth and development, as measured by small but statistically significant decreases in pulmonary function tests. These reductions may persist into adulthood. In addition, several studies cited showed an increased risk of atopy — the first step in developing allergic conditions — in children of smoking mothers. Children with cystic fibrosis are especially sensitive to the respiratory effects of ETS.

Well, yes, obviously children with CF are in a very dangerous situation with cigarette smoke, and I didn't mean to exclude them, or diminish the dangers for them.

It is crazy that DCL still allows smoking on the verandas.

I am going on my first Disney cruise next month so I decided to splurge and get a room with a veranda. Unfortunately that was before I read so many reports on this forum of people unable to use their verandas because of the acrid smell from neighbors' cigarettes and even cigars (!?!) and veranda rooms with the lingering smell of smoke from previous guests. Disney really needs to change this antiquated policy.

Good question. Especially since most of the crew are from countries were smoking restrictions are less strict, or non-existent.
On our HAL cruise, our waiter said two situations he faces in his job that he has no control over are, guests who are from countries were tipping is not the norm , and guests from countries where smoking rules are less strict or don't exist. He has had guests actually light up at the table.....and even more worldly guests don't understand why there isn't at least a smoking section in the dining room.
