Although there are many (such as myself) that follow the rules and stick to smoking in areas that are designated smoking areas, some do not. BUT, keep in mind that smoking is NOT illegal. Cruise lines make big money from selling cigarettes on-board. Carnival cruise lines tried promoting a non-smoking ship (I believe it was the Paradise) and it failed. When I cruise, I don't appreciate drunks, so let's stop selling alcohol on-board. I also don't like kids that are unsupervised running amok so let's stop allowing kids to sail too. And gambling ruins more lives than smoking so let's get rid of the casinos! Unless the use of tobacco products is made illegal, I'm afraid it is something you will have to deal with such as I have to deal with the things I don't like on cruises. Remember it's not just YOUR cruise!!
