QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Smoking on a Cruise

We just updated our articles on cruise line smoking policies, and want to know what you think of the current situation. Are smokers and non-smokers both treated fairly? Is smoke a problem when you cruise?

I read lots of complaints in ship reviews about offensive smoking - usually relating to passing through the casino. It isn't a problem for me - I do smoke cigars - and the cigar lounges are usually kept clean enough for an enjoyable experience. I will say that when the HVAC or ventilation goes out - smoking lounges can become sties. I do think that the "pariah" image of smokers is often exaggerated.
