I never heard about it but im honestly thrilled. We have had a balcony cabin twice that shared a wall with a smoker. As someone severely allergic, i am comfortable in removing myself from anywhere that smokers are enjoying the freedom to enjoy a cigarette, but when the neighboring cabin smoked on their balcony, there was no ability for me to remove myself from the fumes. It ended up being a waste of extra $ to have a veranda when we couldnt leave the door open or enjoy the space in fear that i would have a severe reaction. i assume the inclusion of e-cigs is purely to eliminate the possibility of being unable to recognize the difference by a passerby.

I know it makes it difficult for those that smoke, but i appreciate that DCL recognizes that there is no way to stop the smoke to travel from deck to deck.

It is also a waste of my extra $ that I payed to be able to smoke I would not have book a balcony if I could not use it to smoke

Oh I wasnt trying to say that you didnt have the right to be upset with the change! Sorry if you took my comments as off putting! Not my intention!

Could you call Disney and explain that with the policy change, a veranda cabin is no longer of value to you, and ask to change to a lower classified cabin? Im sure they would accomodate considering they made the policy change after you booked.

I tried but because I used my dvc points they will not do anything . I will lose my points out of the 7 people going in my group 4 are smokers and 2 are kids I just feel that DCL should have made the change start with new bookings in 2015 not the ones people have booked on the other line there is a man that spent 15k for his family to stay in the concierge now is mom and dad will not go and he can't get a refund how is that fair

I have not had an email either

I can sympathise with both parties here

Neither myself or DH smoke & like most none smokers hate it , but my parents both do. This is the 1st cruise they have booked a veranda as last year they said it was such a pain going to the smoking locations so I no they will be furious when they find out (let's just say I'm not telling them until I've had the confirmed email ). I'm sure they would have just booked an inside cabin if the'd of known sooner.

As the the old saying goes you can please some of the people some of the time ........

Had to have an emergency root canal today-YUCK!!! But tooth is on the way to being better. But I paid for our cruise in full today-YAY!!!! So I am super excited for December to get here. One question-our anniversary is actually on Dec. 10th, how do you let them know when you want to celebrate it at dinner? Or will they do something every night ofthe cruise? I added the celebrating anniversary to my ressie just wanted to know what our options are.

Question for everyone in the FE exchange..do you celebrate Christmas? I was thinking of possibly doing some Christmas themed FE gifts, but of course wouldn't want to offend anyone if they celebrate something else or nothing at all.

Thanks.

Hi Michelle

Hope your feeling abit better today

You need to add your anniversary to your booking then they should ask you what day you would like to celebrate
