Just wondering....what were the other 4-6 cruises you have been on where the ships were non-smoking or even the casinos? When I sailed the Caribbean Princess last April, there were Non-Smoking day's in the casino and on the off day's, smoking was only permitted on the Starboard side of the casino. In the case of your "Tip", if you are a non-smoker, and smoking bothers you as much as you seem to communicate, you may not want to sail on any major cruise line as they ALL permit smoking in designated areas.
