Norwegian Cruise Line Bans Smoking in Cabins

If you are cruising on NCL next year and like the idea of being able to light up in your cabin, you might want to think again.  Norwegian Cruise Line has followed several other cruise lines and will be making all cabins smoke free as of January 1, 2012.

AnneMarie Mathews, vice president of public relations, said “We’ve been looking at this for a while based on feedback from guests”.   It has been common complaint amoung passengers to complain about the smokey smells when a guests first enters the stateroom on embarkation day.

In January the new no smoking rules will go into effect.  Passengers in balcony cabins will be able to smoke on their balcony, but cigars and pipe smoking will not be allowed.  Smoking will be allowed in designated areas of the ship, including the casino.  NCL recently made bars, restaurants, and restrooms smoke free, along with areas such as the children’s pool and jogging track.

  1. Be careful of upgrades and always check out the position of the new cabin. I originally booked a balcony cabin on top deck fwd which would get plenty of sun. The supposed upgrade I got was one deck below, mid ships. This balcony got very little sun, I would have been better off in an outside cabin for all the time I spent on the balcony. My complaint was badly dealt with by the cruise ship line. This was my 5th cruise out of 6 with this line.
