The Carnival Cruise Line Smoking Ban

Carnival’s updated smoking policy has been posted on the line’s website. Passengers caught smoking on balconies after the new rule takes effect will be assessed a $250 “cleaning and refreshing” fee.  Cleaning and Refreshing, on a balcony?  We are left wondering if the ocean wind going on the balcony at 30 knots and hour didn’t allow the smoke to clear the area.

Of course it has to compete with this:

When smoking bans reach the point where a company that has been responsible for several big incidents recently feels they are taking the moral high ground by banning cigars, it highlights exactly how far the cigar industry is under attack. Alice, Texas recently banned Cigars, The entire state of Arkansas recently tried to ban cigars,  New York banned Cigars in Parks and Beaches. The list goes on for miles of locations and local governments and establishments that have banned cigars.

The line has to be drawn somewhere, and in this case Carnival I believe has crossed that line.
