Carnival Cruise Line to ban smoking on balconies starting October 9, 2014
This may be good news for those who have paid the extra price for the fresh open air on a balcony. Some passengers have claimed their vacation was ruined by a smoker on a nearby balcony.
However, if you’re a smoker who has booked a balcony on a Carnival Cruise Line ship that sails after October 9, 2014, you may be a little bit upset. Smoking inside the cabin is already banned, but now you will no longer be allowed to step out on the balcony for a smoke. Unfortunately, it was just a matter of time. Most of the cruise lines have already banned smoking on their balconies, and as well as, most of their public spaces. Smoking is still allowed in the designated smoking places, such as a night club, cigar bar or casino.
