Let me begin by saying I thought the bad experience we had on the destiny was bad but the glory beat it. I understand why you can't smoke in state rooms and I will abide by the rules of smoking. But had we known you could not smoke on the lido deck we would't have booked this cruise. It is your job to inform people of the dos and dont's of the cruise. The area where we could smoke had 16 chairs and around 3 to 4 ashtrays and there were several hundred people smoking. In order to get coffee you had to you go lido get coffee walk up stairs or elevator and maybe if you were lucky you could set down or most of the time there was no place to set. Bar service passed u by if you were in the smoking area and in order to get a drink you had to go to bar my husband set aside money to drink but refused cause of the way  we were treated as smokers. It was like discremination to smokers people would empty ashtrays on the floor or into glasses cause the smoking area would be nasty and dirty I even saw cigarettes in the drain area which I thought it was wrong but when you don't get ashtrays emptied then thats what they did. Room service was a joke I ordered room service at 10pm and they woke me up at 1am knocking on my door to bring it I ordered another night it never came and tried one more time an after 3 hours I cancelled it. We tried to get off at there private island and by the time we got down to get on a tender we set there over an hour and we finally just stayed on the ship. ENTERTAINMENT there was none I do not care about comedy club cause I don't like nasty jokes one night was about Milton Bradley games I had those games when I was a child at the age I am now do not classify that as entertainment. dining room staff was good but the person over the dining room was more worried about his staff dancing an singing rather than making sure we as guest were served food. we went to dinner at 6 and didn't leave til after 8pm. The last day we were waiting to get off of ship we looked under the bed to make sure nothing was under there and found a  NASTY CONDOM

If I had found this sooner I would have had  a different room never in my 7 cruises has this happened and that makes me wonder how well the rooms are getting cleaned. I will be letting friends and family know about this and I know a lot of people that are getting ready to book a cruise. You should be like hotels and offer smoking you say you don't want smoking around kids but I would rather my kids be around smoke in open air than around alcohol and drunks who are loud and cursing. So in all I love cruising more than life itself but because of the bad experiences i will probably never get my husband to book another cruise. signed VERY UNHAPPY SAILOR
