Cruisers call for smoking ban

Date Posted: 17 Mar 2008

The majority of cruise holiday passengers want smoking to be completely banned on cruise ships, it has been claimed..

TravelMole reports that an online poll of 5,500 people by cruises.co.uk shows that 68 per cent of passengers would like to sail on Caribbean cruises and Mediterranean cruises in a totally smoke-free atmosphere.

Interestingly, the survey shows that passengers have a keen concern for the welfare of cruise ship staff and personnel, with 74 per cent of cruisers stating that smoking should be banned in bars order to preserve the health of workers.

"This research shows the apparent need for consistent smoking policies across all cruise operators so that confusion amongst passengers can be reduced," Sukie Rapal, Head of Marketing at the website which undertook the research, commented.

In other cruise news, Princess Cruises recently announced its itinerary for summer 2009.

The sailings include Caribbean cruises and Alaskan cruises.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
