A recent poll suggests that smokers are becoming less and less popular with cruise passengers. About a quarter of patrons surveyed by Cruise Critic said that they want ships to become completely smoke-free. These results were released soon after passengers pressured American cruise lines to ban smoking on cruise balconies.
Many passengers detest the smell and are fearful of second-hand smoke exposure. Cigarettes also pose safety issues. One passenger of a Star Princess cruise died in 2006 after a cigarette caused a fire on a balcony.
It looks like, as far as cruise ships are concerned, Americans are well on their way to demanding smoking bans completely.
