Effective October 9, 2014, the following 2 changes will apply for Carnival Cruise Lines, regarding smoking and auto tipping:

Beginning October 9, smoking will no longer be allowed on stateroom balconies.

Also, on sailings beginning October 9, the automatic gratuity will increase from $11.50 to $12.00/per person, per day.

Jerry was not happy about the smoking change. Yes, healthy me lives with a smoker.

From what I have read, NCL and Holland America are the only two ships that permit smoking on the balconies. That will most likely change down the pike as well.

When I went on my cruise in January of 2013, I was too scared to smoke on the balcony. It was really windy! I always smoked in the designated area on Deck 10. I tried to smoke in the casino, but it was too smoky in there so I just inhaled. LOL

Does anyone know the rules for e-cigs? I realize they're posted on the Carnival website somewhere, but I'd rather talk here. :)

E-cigs follow all the same rules of regular cigs - allowed only in the night clubs, jazz club, casino and designated deck areas. As a non-smoker, I was happy when the day came banning smoking on balconies. :smile:
