You may find some cruise lines provide an area on an open deck for smokers as well as designated cigar lounges inside.
It’s important to note that failure to follow the cruise line smoking policy can result in a charge to cover cleaning costs as well as a fine for disposing of your cigarette anywhere but the designated bin.
Non-smoking areas usually cover cigarettes, cigars, pipes and electronic devices but more extensive information can be found on each cruise line’s website.
Here’s a summary of most cruise lines’ smoking policies.
