The other option is go on the cruise, but don't book a verandah stateroom, or keep the person with the severe reaction away from the verandah when smokers are present. DCL does specifically allow smoking on the verandahs. For that reason it would seem unreasonable to expect the smoker to be the one moved.

There's also no guarantee that if you are moved to another verandah stateroom, that one won't be next door to a smoker too.

I sure hope I don't get an extreme anti smoker beside us. I consider us "polite smokers", but at the end of the day, we ARE smokers. One of the perks of Disney is that you are able to smoke on balcony. I would hate to have the guilt of "ruining" someone's vacation because I was doing something within the regulations!

There is no easy answer. First, while most Disney cruisers are Americans, it is an international cruise line. I had an interesting discussion in June on our cruise to Alaska (on HAL) with some folks from Europe and Asia. They respected the smoking rules, but did say it is interesting that for a country that is the home of the free, we accept such strict restrictions on smoking.

If non-smokers and smokers just try and be courteous, and respect each other, folks can be out on their balcony having a cigarette, then go in so others can go out and not having to breath the smoke.

151 Days out...Get your money back. If you and/or your daughter are that sensitive to cigarette smoke (for whatever reason), it's not worth it to worry about it from now until your cruise, in my opinion.

But that can be turned around as well. I am free to breathe clean air and not be forced to smell something I find offensive that is, in fact, harmful to my health. Freedom is good.

What about getting an inside room? My son is extremely sensitive to the smell of smoke (not allergic but no one would hear the end of it if he was around the smell a lot) and half the reason we booked an inside room was because I heard a cruising horror story about a family with a non-stop smoker out on the veranda next to them. I bet if you stick with your veranda room you'll be just fine though. The impolite smoker thing probably doesn't happen very often.

It would seem to me, mamamac that you are correct. If you have enough money, you can book every room in the ship and either leave the rooms empty or fill them with nonsmokers.

For the record, I don't smoke. I'll be glad to fill in some space, if you're offering.

There's a joke there, but it would get me flamed and it is in poor taste.

I completely agree with you! I am a smoker and so is my DH and we are extremely aware of our surroundings when we smoke. We have a two year old in which we do not even let him see us smoke! I always feel guilty and never want anyone to feel that I am being rude by sneaking in one of my three smokes a day! I also think there is some stereotypes being circulated on this thread because all us smokers and not inconsiderate jerks.

I'm not a smoker and my dad isn't either, my mom is but she doesn't like traveling much and would never get on a cruise ship. But if we had people by us they smoked I wouldn't mind unless they were really bad. Yes it can smell bad, but can't smell any worse then the pot/weed I had to deal with at warped tour a few years back. I can still smell it

My point exactly. With common courtesy, everyone can have a great cruise.
