The bottom line is smoking is bad for everyones health. Smokers, and non smokers. I am not a smoker. I hate it, and I think its disgusting. I am sure this opinion will not be well received by many, but I cant tell you how happy I am a cruise line is finally doing this. I know a lot smokers are considerate but there are many that are not. I as a non smoker should not have to be subjected to cigarette smoke. Its bad for my health, and thats a proven fact. I shouldnt have to hold my breath as I walk behind someone smoking. It should be banned completely from everywhere. They are pretty sure thats what caused the fire on the star princess. I heard someone once tell me that its a free country, and you should be able to smoke wherever, and thats crap. Its against the law to cause bodily harm to an individual, so what does smoking do. The second hand smoke is harmful. I should not have to be subjected to that. I was on the Paradise when it was a non smoking cruise ship. Great time on board and it was sold out. Smokers everywhere better start to wake up and realize that in about 5-10 years you wont be able to smoke anywhere, and thats fanatastic. Cant wait, and hopefully its sooner rather than later. Bravo RCI. Hopefully Carnival will follow suit.
