    Crystal Expands Non-Smoking Policy


    Effective with the first cruises in 2014, Crystal Cruises will eliminate smoking in all indoor areas, except for its Connoisseur Club smoking lounge. Outside smoking will be allowed in a limited number of designated spaces.

    The revised policy begins with the January 5th v4301 and January 8th v4201 voyages of Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, respectively, and eliminates smoking in all staterooms and suites, the Crystal Cove lobby lounge and Pulse and Luxe nightclubs.

    In keeping with lifestyle trends, most areas of Crystal ships have been non-smoking for several years, including restaurants and main entertainment lounges, as well as stateroom and suite verandahs. Crystal eliminated smoking in its popular Avenue Saloon and Casino in 2013.

    “We have received considerable feedback and we listened. Our policies have evolved as lifestyles have changed,” says Gregg Michel, Crystal Cruises’ president. “The majority of our guests worldwide are non-smoking, and travelers are used to more non-smoking environments today.”

    Crystal will continue to offer the Connoisseur Club, the only remaining interior smoking area, and designated spaces on exterior open decks for cigar, pipe and cigarette smoking.

    Unless we hit the lottery, it is highly unlikely that we will ever be able to afford Crystal.

    I remember when Carnival tried to have a non-smoking vessel. It didn't go over quite so well.

    I agree with no smoking inside, but if you are outside and there is air moving about and smoking is on one side of the ship, isn't that okay? We all know that smoking and 2nd hand smoke is not good, but there are still lots of smokers out there (and they take cruises)
