This will be something that will become apparent after some time. In general those ships that have adopted this policy have had real success with it. I am not sure how much input Royal Caribbean have with their partners, First Choice, on these ships but if the RCI group is anything to go by then the rules will be vigorously applied. I am sorry about you previous experience but things, as I have been saying for some time now, are changing as the proportion of non-smokers grows and it is already well over 65% . So stick with it as I still maintain that in five years time we will all wonder how we ever put up with the smoky atmosphere. Yours Ida.
