For the comfort and enjoyment of our guests, our ships are designated as non-smoking; however, we recognise that some of our guests smoke. Therefore, to provide an onboard environment that also satisfies smokers, we have designated certain areas of the ship as smoking areas.
Cigarette, cigar, e-cigarette and pipe smoking is permitted in designated outdoor areas of the starboard side of all ships, with the exception of Oasis-class ships that will allow smoking on the port side of the ships. To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted, guests will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays that are provided for use. Outdoor areas near restricted areas, food venues and children's play areas and pools will not allow smoking. On Oasis-class ships, smoking is not permitted in Central Park or the Boardwalk neighbourhoods.
Casino Royale permits smoking and has a designated area for non-smoking guests. There will be visible signage indicating the non-smoking area in the casino. All cruises departing from China and Hong Kong will not have a non-smoking area in the casino. Smoking is not permitted in the casino for any ships departing from Australia and the United Kingdom.
All onboard interior public spaces are non-smoking*. Smoking is not permitted in any dining venue, theatre, bar, lounge, hallway, lift and jogging track.
Smoking is not permitted inside any stateroom and any stateroom balcony. This applies to all stateroom categories onboard. If a guest is in violation of this stateroom policy, a cleaning fee of USD 250 will be applied to their SeaPass® account and may be subject to further action pursuant to the "Consequences Section" of the Guest Conduct Policy.
Cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco must be properly disposed of and never thrown overboard. Cigar and pipe tobacco is limited to designated outdoor areas and Cigar Bars**. You must be at least 18 years-old to purchase, possess or use tobacco onboard.
Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are only permitted within the designated smoking areas.
Royal Caribbean International kindly asks all guests to please observe the smoking policy. These requests are made to provide a comfortable cruise for everyone. Guest may also enquire at Guest Services about the location of the designated smoking areas onboard.
Guests who violate this smoking policy may be subject to further action pursuant to the "Consequences Section" of this Guest Conduct Policy.
Royal Caribbean updated the smoking policy in September 2013 and the above policy is in enforcement on all ships with cruises departing on or after 1 January 2014.
