So are electronic cigarette smokers required to go stand in the smoker areas? If that's the case then it kind of defeats the purpose of quitting. Other than my health, of course ;-)
My understanding is that e-cigs must be used at the same locations as regular cigarettes.
From the FAQs..... E-cigs are addressed in the last line
What is the smoking policy?
Effective June 15, 2011, cigarette smoking in public venues will only be permitted in Carnival’s dance clubs as well as in designated areas within the casino and casino bar.
Smoking (including cigars) will be permitted in designated exterior open deck areas (starboard side) of all our ships. Additionally, smoking will also be allowed in the jazz clubs of the following ships: Carnival Destiny, Carnival Triumph, Carnival Victory, Carnival Conquest, Carnival Glory, Carnival Valor, Carnival Liberty, Carnival Freedom, and Carnival Splendor.
* All Spa Suites and Staterooms, inclusive of the balconies, are an entirely smoke-free environment. Spa suites and staterooms are on the following ships only: Carnival Splendor, Carnival Dream, Carnival Breeze and Carnival Sunshine.
* Effective December 1, 2011, smoking will be prohibited in all guest staterooms. Guests in balcony staterooms may smoke (including cigars) outside on their balcony.
Guests who smoke in their staterooms will be assessed a $250 USD cleaning and refreshing fee on their Sail & Sign account. Information on this fee is included in Carnival’s ticket contract.
Note: Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are only allowed in the designated smoking areas.
My degree of sarcasm depends on your degree of stupidity!
