Default Warning for smokers on the Breeze

This thread is informational only, and I do not want to start a smoking debate here.

Just sharing some information that we just found out...there will be no smoking allowed anywhere on Lido on the Breeze (despite John's FB post just before she sailed that smoking would be allowed on Lido port side). Smokers will have to go up to deck 11, or down to Promenade port side. Since Carnival does such a lousy job of giving out the correct information, I thought I would share.

Does this have to do with some of the food choices, that they decided were too close to the smoking area? I seem to have heard it was a issue on Dream class.

Interesting.

Has anyone smoked in the cabin and paid the $250 fine?

I believe that was on Liberty where those problems arose. At the moment (and always subject to change on their whim), smoking is still allowed on Magic and Dream Lido port side, so obviously it isn't an issue with food venues.

Nope, but then again, I always get a balcony, and I plan to smoke on it. Since Carnival gives me fewer places to smoke, I'll just spend more time on my balcony and less money at their bars

Probably too many Russians ignoring the rules anyway.

But good news for non-smokers!

Nope. Smoking area is called A BALCONY. Did this on Liberty after Guy Burgers went in. That wasn't my plan, but it turned out that way. So, happy Lido.

I'm not going to take sides here but it seems ironic that they built a non-smoking ship, lost their kiesters on it, made it a smoking ship and now are making the rest of the fleet almost non-smoking. Didn't they learn anything from the Paradise?

I think they did learn from Paradise, but smoking on that ship is now just as limited to certain areas. They will still fill those ships with the Lido ban as long as there is smoking allowed on the balconies. I think Paradise also lost revenues in the casinos with the decrease of gamblers and sales of their drinks. So, Magic and Liberty are off my list. I've noticed Liberty has some mighty fine rates for inside cabins, gee, why could that be?

Yeah, we're trying to get them to post a list of each ship's smoking areas since they apparently are becoming much different from one another, even in the same class...

The (not) part.

The Paradise was likely ahead of its time. Smoking is likely to be banned more not less in the future. The writing seems quite all over the wall. Right now its a money maker for taxes, when it ceases to be a moneymaker then watch out.

It doesn't matter to us since we don't smoke, but is this a change after the first few cruises? I've been reading reports and reviews from folks on the cruise and they say that smoking is allowed on the port side of the Lido Deck.

That is true. And many Americans ignore the rules, too.
