The casino smoking ban expires on Wednesday.

With the option to extend.  We are on the maiden voyage of the Wonder on 3/4.  Hoping RCL gets their act together.

Would be fine with a smoking lounge like they used to have.  Need to accommodate everyone.

They don't NEED to accommodate smokers.  Smokers are banned from many places on land with no loss of revenue.  They will be banned everywhere eventually including cruise ships.  You're welcome to disagree but that won't change the eventual outcome.

I'm not a smoker.  In fact, I've never taken a puff... not once in my 56 years.  I hate the smell of smoke and that it gets in my clothes and hair (what little I have left).

However, smokers and drinkers, and to an extent casino goers are the easiest people to tax. Politicians across the country take advantage of these people by hiking taxes on their vice and rolling like pigs in a trough in the money they raise and then continuously restricting where and when they can use the products.  

I like the move by RCCL.  Banning smoke will cost them some customers, but will gain them others.  Whatever cruise line doesn't ban smoking will gain smoking customers, but lose non smokers to RCCL.  I'm not sure I agree with the last minute change.  I don't think that's an appropriate way to treat a customer.

Well I am a smoker but am OK with this ban (although I would prefer an alcohol ban.. the smell of it makes my stomach turn) but to each their own. I have no issues with this cause I spend way more in casino than the cruise cost me so is good for me. I get to sit outside more which is a good thing.

Park MGM in Las Vegas is completely smokeless, it's also one of the busiest, so it's not messing with profits. Can't tell you how nice it is going back at the end of the night not stinking of smoke and having bloodshot eyes

I stayed at The Park in Vegas recently and loved they had no smoking.  One reason I booked rooms there.
