Cruise ships are a great way for people to get away from it all and enjoy a vacation without having to worry about their day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, many cruise ship companies have strict policies in place concerning smoking. This includes whether or not you can smoke on the balcony of your room on a cruise ship.
In general, most cruise ships do not allow smoking on the balconies of passenger rooms. This is because the balconies are usually open areas and any smoke from cigarettes could drift out into other open areas, potentially causing discomfort to other passengers.
Some cruise lines may provide designated smoking areas in certain parts of the ship, but these are usually outside and away from passenger rooms.
However, there are some exceptions to this rule. Some cruise lines may provide special accommodations for passengers who wish to smoke on their balconies. For example, they may provide ashtrays and lighters that can be used in designated areas on the balcony, or even allow smoking within an enclosed balcony area with an exhaust fan installed to help minimize smoke from entering other areas of the ship. In addition, some cruise lines may even allow cigar smoking in certain areas of the ship such as designated cigar lounges or bars.
Overall, it is important to check with your cruise line before attempting to smoke on your balcony while aboard a cruise ship as many have strict rules against this activity due to safety and comfort concerns for other passengers. Some cruise lines may provide accommodations for those wishing to do so but it is important to be aware of these rules before setting sail.
In conclusion, you generally cannot smoke on the balcony of your room on a cruise ship due to safety and comfort concerns for other passengers; however, some cruise lines may offer special accommodations for those wishing to do so.
