What is Royal Caribbean's smoking policy?


For the comfort and enjoyment of our guests, our ships are designated as non-smoking; however, we recognize that some of our guests do smoke. To provide an onboard environment that meets all needs, we’ve designated certain areas of the ship as smoking areas.

Smoking refers to the use of cigarettes, cigars, all types of electronic vaping (such as e-cigarettes, vapes, mods, etc.), and pipe smoking.

  • Smoking is permitted in designated outdoor areas, must be properly disposed of, and never be thrown overboard.
  • We’ll have visible signage posted in areas where smoking is permitted, and ashtrays that are provided for use.
  • Cigar and pipe tobacco are limited to designated outdoor areas and Cigar Bars.
  • You must be at least 21 years of age to purchase, possess, or use tobacco on sailings beginning in U.S. ports. For sailings beginning in all other ports, the minimum age is 18 years old.

Onboard Casino

  • Casino Royale® allows smoking and has designated areas for both smoking and non-smoking guests. There will be visible signage indicating the smoking and the non-smoking area in the casino.
  • Ships sailing 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 sailing from Australia and the United Kingdom.

Other Spaces Onboard – Smoke Free

  • Onboard all interior public spaces are smoke free. Smoking is not permitted in any dining venue, theater, bar, lounge, hallway, elevator, and jogging track. Outdoor areas near restricted areas, food venues, and kids play areas and pools will not allow smoking.
  • On Oasis class, smoking is not permitted in Central Park or the Boardwalk neighborhoods.
  • Smoking/vaping is not permitted inside any stateroom and any stateroom balcony. If a guest is in violation of this stateroom policy, a cleaning fee of $250 USD will be applied to their SeaPass® account and may be subject to further actions*.


Royal Caribbean International kindly asks all guests to please observe the smoking policy. These requests are made to provide a comfortable cruise for everyone. Guests who violate this smoking policy may result in one or more enforcement actions* as described on page 2 of our Guest Conduct Policy.
