I would like to know about the smoking areas on the Star Princess also. Thank you.

They (Swisher) are blend of a cigar and cigarette.

 

I smoked these on our last cruise (NCL) in both the cigar lounge and smoking section of their ship without incident.

 

Just wanted to know if they would be OK onboard the Royal?

 

Very enjoyable to puff on after a hearty meal.

The Princess guidelines regarding cigarettes vs cigars (and pipes) are pretty specific. Churchill's is the proper place for cigars.

Best to follow guidlines and smoke your Cigarillos in Churchill's which is a fun place to meet fellow smokers.  :classic_cool:

What is the smoking policy on the Royal Princess, and is it strictly enforced?  There have been comments about passengers smoking on balconies and in the casino on other Princess ships.  Is this happening on Royal Princess?

Don't know about Royal as we haven't sailed her. However, smoking is usually allowed in part of the casino - other than designated smoke-free evenings. If someone should be smoking on the balcony I would report it and keep complaining until the situation was rectified. I do not want to be stuck with someone else's smoke. Period.

Below is the Princess policy. On the Royal Princess outdoor smoking areas include:

An area on the deck 7 starboard aft. An area on deck 17 forward above the Lido pool. The aft section of deck 17. Indoor areas include some casino slots when playing. Casino tables are smoke free and there are some smoke free evenings in the casino. Not certain but I think I remember that a section of Club 6 becomes a smoking area during the late evening 'club' hours.  Churchill's, deck 6 forward port, is the only location where you can smoke cigars and pipes.

I have not experienced any smoking on balconies near our cabins since the policy was implemented years ago. Has it happened, probably. Strictly enforced? There are no wandering smoking police. I think it is the passengers themselves that report smoking in unauthorized locations. In cabins I would think the cabin stewards would smell the smoke and report it to their supervisor, followed by the cleaning charge.

 

"Indoor areas onboard the vessels are non-smoking and smoking is only permitted in designated sections. Outdoor smoking areas are clearly posted throughout the vessel. Smoking is prohibited in Guest staterooms and balconies. Violations to the onboard smoking policy will result in a $250 cleaning fee for each occurrence, which will be charged to Your stateroom account. Repeated violations may result in You being disembarked prior to the end of the Cruise without any refund. The use of electronic cigarettes, personal vaporizers, or electronic nicotine delivery systems is allowed within the confines of the Guest's stateroom (balcony not included) and within designated smoking areas only."

I have sailed in balcony cabins on Princess many times since the no smoking on balcony policy change and have never experienced a problem.

Hi LuLu,

a man was smoking on his balcony next to me. I just asked him if he would stop because it bothered us. He was very good about it and apologized.

Same here. Most seem to adhere to the smoking policy.

We adhere, only smoking in the smoking lounge, the designated area out on deck, or after we are off of the ship.

No smoking at all in the casino? What about Churchill's on deck 6 forward?

From someone who tossed the unfiltered Camels 30 years ago I am also grateful to those who follow the policies. Sometimes I think ex-smokers are even harder on smoking than those who never smoked.

Good for you for quitting. 👍  From what I hear it’s very hard to stop smoking.

Thanks. That's pretty mind boggling actually. The entire point of Churchill's is to have a bar where one can smoke cigars and pipes. (Yes, I know people also smoke cigarettes there but some cigar and pipe smokers are not at all happy about that fact.) Of course the venue likely still reeks but having a ship with no smoking inside is pretty amazing. Some will think that is terrible but most will find it pretty cool. (I tossed the unfiltered Camels a good 30 years ago and never smoked again.)
