Smoking is a fire and safety hazard on a cruise ship. Consequently, it is strictly limited to specific exterior deck areas and designated casino/night club spaces that can be monitored.
Carnival Cruise Line’s newly updated policy on smoking states that any violation of the Tobacco and Marijuana will result in a charge of $500 per violation to the passenger’s Sign & Sail account. In addition, violations may also result in the disembarkation of all guests in the stateroom.
Yes, Carnival is now stating that if you smoke in your cabin, you can get kicked off your cruise ship in addition to the $500 fines.
Guests who are disembarked for violating our policy will be responsible for all financial charges and expenses to return home, and no refund of their unused cruise fare will be provided. Additionally, they may be prohibited from sailing with Carnival Cruise Line in the future.
All staterooms and suite accommodations, including outside balconies, are non-smoking on Carnival cruise ships. This policy applies to all forms of smoking, including but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, pipes, vaporizers, electronic cigarettes and marijuana.
Carnival recognizes that some state and local governments in the U.S., and in the destinations we visit, might allow marijuana use. However, Carnival Cruise Line follows U.S. federal law, which strictly prohibits possession and use of recreational/medicinal marijuana and other illegal controlled substances.
