    With effect from the 15th November 2013, Guests will no longer be permitted to smoke on stateroom verandahs onboard Disney Cruise Line ships.

    However, it is recognized that some Guests smoke and to provide an onboard atmosphere that also satisfies smokers, portions of open-air decks on each ship are designated as smoking areas.

    Guests who are found smoking in their staterooms or on their verandahs will be charged a $250 stateroom recovery fee. This fee covers a deep cleaning to include air filter replacement, carpet extraction, the cleaning and replacement of drapes, comforters, blankets, and pillows, along with verandah cleaning and maintenance.

    Guests with verandah stateroom bookings affected by this change will be contacted by their travel agent or by email. Guests will also be reminded of this policy once onboard.

    Fortunately for me, I quit years ago.

    That's ridiculous. Don't allow someone to smoke in privacy, rather force them out in public where others are equally forced to walk by? I've been on ships where this is the requirement and it's a ripping pain. We like to walk the deck for exercise and it's really, really annoying to have to walk through a cloud of smoke once every lap.

    Allow smokers to smoke on their verandahs! Geez.

    I guess the reason for this is down to some inconsiderate passengers who did not bother to check if anyone was out in the adjoining verandah.
    This is something that I always did before lighting up to avoid any aggro.

    And it's something I'm grateful to you for.

    You checking was my cue to come out on our verandah next door. It allowed me to hang out on our verandah next door when you were smoking and inhale deeply the second hand smoke. It was almost as good as if I were still a smoker. Same concept as the night we were leaving the Yachtsman Steak House and walking across the parking lot and you mentioned that you'd walk away from us so we wouldn't be bothered by your smoke.
    As I recall I chased you down that time also just for a whiff of the second hand stuff.

    Thank you so much for sharing!

    No problem Tom, and if I recall I never even charged you.
    I may have mentioned this before, but I only smoke after meals....the problem is that I have to eat 15 times per day!

    Yes, it's so much cheaper to smoke OP's (other peoples). :wink:

    When I used to smoke, I'd always ask folks if they minded if I smoked. The usual reply was that they didn't really care if I burned up.

    and i think that's the key isn't it..consideration. If i was sat on a my verandah/balcony i wouldn't want someone smoking on the one next to me. Also i think some people would throw their butts over the side too which they want to avoid. It's a shame that because of the inconsiderate few we have to abide by certain rules. Being an ex smoker i do have an appreciation of both sides
