  1. Thx all for responding and especially Jaczs, you are right, so I,ll stop my ranting and get on with it ......as always. Looks like I may have to switch my cruising to more friendly smoking lines in future, despite having spent many happy years with RCI and Cunard.
  2. 3 in a room on Cunard QE, 2 got norovirus day 1 and confined to cabin 3 days, special diet and ghostbusters cleaners daily. Other cabin member allowed to leave cabin and go freely anywhere on board! That helped stop the spread then. To cap it all, had to pay 200 dollar medical bill for getting sick on their ship day 1 when previous day we were perfectly well. Very tempting to take own meds and ignore the cabin confinement in future??
  3. Always a hot topic and given that cruises are generally booked so far in advance, maybe cruise liners should give more specific info on their smoking policies when selecting cabin no. As a smoker, I would be very happy to have a more restricted no. of cabins available if I was assured on being able to smoke on my balcony. It's an important part of my day, first and last thing, sitting on balcony with my coffee and smoke, contemplating the days events. Rest of day I,m not in room anyway.
  4. Okay, okay, non-smokers as always the louder voice, I accept and concede. However, what about the compromise idea of balconies only one side/certain decks being smoking allowed? Seems fairer to all? Earlier you book, more chance of your own choice as with any other room type or position!? Views?
  5. Mmm, interesting. Makes sense charges so high to deter constant use and crashing, although it's so slow generally that barely worth the effort and frustration of trying. Deffo easier to wait for port call and have bar/cafe drink using their free internet. Maybe, they could introduce time slots to sign up for use to help with speed/ no. Users and then bring cost down?
  6. Seems more and more lines are stopping smoking on balconies........ .....we smokers have already accepted extreme smoking restrictions over the years and have accepted that to smoke comfortably a more expensive balcony room needs to be booked and now they are restricting that also. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!! Whilst I can appreciate non smokers requirements and have accepted restricted smoking on decks and internal facilities, and can also appreciate fire hazards from smokers, this really is cruise lines going too far in bending towards their non smoking customers. We smokers are paying the same p
  7. Seems more and more lines are now following suit......we smokers have already accepted extreme smoking restrictions over the years and have accepted that to smoke comfortably a more expensive balcony room needs to be booked and now they are restricting that also.

  8. Absolutely agree, we have nationwide flex account and get standard euro travel free but have found out that we can pay extra premium to cover extra days for our world cruise in 2015. We are in our 50's and will cost less than £200 extra. Bargain compared to other quotes we tried. I think they will cover over 75's for extra cost also but you do need an account with them with set amount going in monthly. Also be aware, not all companies include cruise cover as standard, specifically ask this question as very often an extra premium needs to be paid to add cruise cover as endorsement to travel i
