If NCL offered completely non-smoking cruises, would you book?

Recommended Posts

I wonder if NCL ever looked into having specific cruises be 100% non-smoking? If they did:

 

1. Would you book one?

 

2. Would you be willing to pay a premium to book a cruise that was 100% smoke-free?

YES

YES

 

My mother died from COPD & I am asthmatic, w frequent bronchitis. It's imperative I stay away from all sources of smoke.

No, and no. While I don't smoke personally, I often travel with people who do. There are very few areas where you can smoke onboard to begin with, so as long as people are following the rules, I see no reason it should adversely affect non-smoking guests.

We cruise on cost and itinerary and would love there to be no smoking but accept that others would want to smoke. I wish smokers would be confined to a single room with an expellair with an efficient scrubber.

No and no. While I would love to book a non-smoking cruise because I am a asthmatic, my cruise partner (mom) likes to smoke e-cigarettes so i wouldn't because it means she wouldn't go with me on our yearly mother-daughter trips. And we cruise for itinerary and price, like to book balconies on our cruises and a premium price would mean going back to insides and I tried that once already and mom vetoed it.:D

Really don't have a problem with smokers EXCEPT in the Casino. There should be a section just for the Smokers that keeps all the smoke in that section. Believe it or not secondhand smoke KILLS

Depends on the ship.

 

1. Yes

2. No....shouldn't have to. If anything, the cruises that allow smoking should cost more. :p

 

 

i agree with this

I am NO on both counts because I am tired of government and their regulations demanding what I and the members of my family do.

Just like the water threads.

What's next?.....NO alcohol or limited because it causes problems and it does stink.

How about perfume?....Kids?....

They can try, as other ships have tried, but the government loves and are addicted to the taxes.

Just look at the cigarettes they sell onboard? How large the space is.

Then there is the cigar lounge....Seems peoples right to enjoy themselves are being taken away bit by bit.

Don't go on an Asian cruise IF you expect NO smoking.

Celebrity which was once a thriving line, offers no smoking, except in a tiny area and now they have a smaller cut of the supply of passengers and only built 2 new ships in 2014 as they sell off the older ones.

I believe the ships have done a pretty decent job of curbing smoking within, and about the ship, but until smoking is eliminated completely in the World, it won't happen.

Perhaps they could build another casino in another area as a test or put in better air control.

I have only found that the smoke is heavy in the morning where they gather for that first smoke of the day when I go take a look. the evening smoke is not very noticeable on the NCL ships I have cruised on.

I think the better question is:

 

"If there truly was a sustainable interest in a non-smoking cruise, would you be willing to contract a whole ship charter to prove it?"

Yes

 

No

 

There are plenty of times in life I've been very bothered by cigarette smoke but it hasn't been on a cruise yet. With smoking being confined to a specific spot on deck and the casino it's easy to avoid - since I'm not a gambler. Now, I love eating outside and would pay a premium to not allow smoking in or near the patio of a restaurant - the smell ruins the taste of the food.

Yes and no. Love clean air, but am sorta price conscious and the itinerary is more important than smoke free. I am happy that smoking has been curtailed to certain areas. It just so happens that one of my favorite areas is a smoking area. Boo.
