This is a lightly edited email we received from Seabourn recently about their new smoking policy.
We are writing to give you advance notice that we will soon be implementing changes to our onboard smoking policies to better align them with the wishes of our guests. These changes are being made for the comfort and convenience of all our travelers, in response to surveys conducted during the past year, as well as ongoing comments from our guests and their travel agents.
The new smoking policy takes effect on all ships starting on the following dates (as well as any combination cruise spanning these dates):
- Seabourn Quest: 11/28/16, Buenos Aries – Valparaiso
- Seabourn Encore: 12/4/16, Athens – Dubai
- Seabourn Sojourn: 12/5/16, Dubai – Singapore
- Seabourn Odyssey: 12/7/16, Lisbon – Ft. Lauderdale
Smoking will no longer be permitted anywhere inside any Seabourn ship at any time, including on the private verandas of guest suites.
For guests who wish to smoke, there will continue to be designated areas:
- On the starboard half of the Sky Bar on Deck 9 (Seabourn Encore Deck 10) including the bar stools
- On the starboard half of the open terrace aft of The Club on Deck 5
- Smoking of cigarettes, pipes and cigars is permitted on the open terrace aft of Seabourn Square on Deck 7. This is the only area on board where pipe and cigar smoking is permitted.
Smoking of water pipes, glass pipes or other smoking devices is not permitted on board. Smoking is not permitted on open decks during fuel bunkering operations in port. Smoking of electronic cigarettes is permitted in guest suites, as well as other designated smoking areas.
The revised policy will be posted on our website in the section entitled FAQs under the heading “Is Smoking Allowed?” It will also be printed in the daily Seabourn Herald on board all Seabourn ships.
We thank those of you who have taken the time to advise us of your opinions about our smoking policies.
