Norwegian Cruise Line joins Carnival in banning smoking on balconies

Posted on Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 at 1:26 pm    

Starting this November, options for smoking passengers will be seriously limited on Norwegian Cruise Line trips, Cruise Critic reported on July 16.

Norwegian is the second cruise line to prohibit smoking on cruise ship balconies; the first was Carnival Cruise Lines, which announced its decision to do so the second week of July. Only one major cruise line is holding out on the smoking ban–Holland America.

According to a spokesperson for Norwegian Cruise Line, the effective date for the smoking ban was set for November 1 to give ample time for those passengers who want to cancel their reservation tickets without incurring penalties.

Cruises continuously change policies in order to please their clientele. Despite this, there are still risks of an accident occurring on a cruise ship, and often, there is less than adequate care available to treat injuries.
