February 2014 - Norwegian Breakaway to Caribbean - Bahamas
Ship is very nice, food great, my husband & I always book a balcony cabin and I was very disappointed with the poor or lack of ventilation in the casino area, too much cigarette smoke. I know that there are more non-smokers than smokers so the cruiselines should dedicate one whole side to us, the non-smokers. We pay just as much or sometimes even more for the same staterooms and we should be able to enjoy our balconies. I couldn't leave my door open because the cig. smoke was getting into my room. We like to sit outside on the balcony, have our first cup of coffee and enjoy the ocean air but like I mentioned already, something HAS to be done about the smoking situation. All of our friends and family we travel with are also non-smokers and we all share the same frustration about the cig smoke. I know that there is a Carnival ship that is non-smoking but it has a limited and/or short itinerary and it departs from Florida, so we can't book that one all the time. If CARNIVAL can do it I'm sure other cruiselines CAN do it also.
