How smokey are the royal Caribbean casinos?

Recommended Posts

Very. Someone described it as a smoking lounge that doubles as a casino.

I went on Norwegian Getaway last month and the casino was quite a bit less smoky than RC ships as they require active gambling in order to smoke in the casino.  I love Anthem and one of the nice things is that the smoke is well contained compared to the chimney effect on ships with a Centrum.  Of course, that's not great if you want to be gambling.

How smokey are the casinos, i know there are 'non smoking areas' but i assume these still get a bit smokey as well, and i dont really want to be restricted to just the non smoking areas... for example i like to play tables and i assume they will be in smoking area.

 

I was able to cope with it in vegas but i assume they are better air conditioned than a cruise ship and all the casinos are massive in vegas with high ceilings etc.

Way too smokey. I can't believe RCI permits smoking in any indoor venue.

On Liberty the smoking is so bad in the casino that my family couldn’t tolerate being in the photo area. On Indy many years ago it was really bad in the Promenade even near the stairs to the casino.  Didn’t notice this on Liberty. Both ships much worse than the Princess ships we’ve been on.  Carnival Breeze seemed pretty bad but the Breeze was laid out in a way we often had to walk through the casino (or detour around it).

On many ships NCL breaks up the casino with wide, open spaces snd that diffuses the smoke s good bit (although then patrons in  the nearby venues complain). I seem to remember that some also have non-smoking sections of the casinos separated from the smoking portion by that connecting open space (like a food area near an section opened to an atrium).
