Being an ex-smoker...I get both arguments.

I have asthma and I worry about having to be around it a lot, too. Yet, I am going to just take a chance and hope things go well...bringing meds with me of course.
Surely DCL has thought of the same things we have mentioned but they have to try to please people too, so I can understand their hands being tied, so to speak.

While I don't encourage smoking, that is a good idea that some might want to use perhaps for the trip only, at least. This way they can have their fix and not have to hear complaints.

Seriously, the right to have 'pure air' does not exist....especially on a cruise ship. Fat sweaty people get on elevators and pass gas - you can either get offended and indignant or you laugh about it and enjoy life.
We all knew (or should have known) the smoking policy before booking. If you can't live with the policy, don't book the cruise! But don't book the cruise and then complain about the policy...that is just going to spoil your vacation and not change anything.
Quit worrying about it, pour the wine and cut the cheese! You're going on a Disney cruise! Whoohoooo!!
If us fat, sweaty people don't toot in the elevators, how else then can we get them to ourselves?
Hey, it made it to page 5!!
