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.
