While passengers were already not allowed to smoke in stateroom cabins, outlawing smoking on balconies is a first for Disney.   Passengers who violate this new policy will receive a $250 cleaning fee that will cover the cost of air filter replacement, cleaning and replacement of carpets, drapes, blankets, sheets, and pillows.

Disney will allow smoking in certain open-air decks of each cruise ship.  All interior spaces on the ships will remain smoke-free.   While almost all ships allow smoking in the casino, Disney does not have a casino any of their cruise ships.

Disney issued the following statement: “From time to time we make adjustments to our operation based upon guest feedback. Effective November 15, 2013, Guests will no longer be permitted to smoke on stateroom verandahs onboard Disney Cruise Line ships.”

The trend over the past few years has been unfriendly to smokers.  Smoking was allowed in staterooms but now has been banned by virtually every cruise line.  Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Norwegian, and Holland America currently still allow smoking on balconies.
