  • Outdoor Areas on Deck 12 (except in the H2O Zone kids’ water park)
  • Casino Royale (also has a designated non-smoking area marked with visible signs)

* To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted, guests will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays are provided for use. Guests may also inquire at Guest Services for the location of designated smoking areas.

Smoking Rules: **

  • Cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco must be properly disposed of and NEVER thrown overboard.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase, possess or use tobacco onboard.
  • Electronic cigarettes or e-cigarettes are only permitted within the designated smoking areas.

Smoking is NOT allowed in the following areas:

  • Inside any stateroom or on any stateroom balcony. This applies to all stateroom categories onboard. If a guest is in violation of this stateroom policy, a cleaning fee of $250 USD will be applied to their SeaPass® account and may be subject to further action pursuant to the “Consequences Section” of the Royal Caribbean Guest Conduct Policy. **
  • Interior public spaces (ex. dining venues, theater, hallways, elevators, jogging track, etc.)

** It is VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE that the “Consequences Section” of the Guest Conduct Policy includes the following possible actions:

  • Removal of certain onboard privileges, which may include being detained, quarantined or confined in a stateroom or holding cell;
  • Denial of boarding on the current or any future Royal Caribbean International cruise vacation;
  • Removal from a ship at the next port of call. Guests removed from a Royal Caribbean International ship pursuant to this policy are responsible for their own accommodations and transportation home, at their expense. Documentation requirements for re-entry into the guest’s home country are also the responsibility of the guest.

Royal Caribbean updated their smoking policy September 2013 and is enforced on all ships with cruises departing on or after January 1, 2014. Exceptions to this policy have been made for Rock Legends Cruise VI, allowing passengers to smoke in Dog & Badger English Pub and additional outdoor areas on Decks 11 and 12.

We have been very fortunate to establish an amazing relationship with Royal Caribbean. Please let’s continue to maintain that relationship and abide by this policy change. Thanks!



What Passengers Think

This was our first cruise as well as first RLC. What a blast! NAHA knows how to do it right! Practically non stop music from big named artists to fabulous up and coming musicians, this cruise rocks! I got hooked for Sammy but seeing some of the other artists were also highlights! And everybody we met was very cool! Maybe not for VII, but we will be back in the future!

LeslieG, great experience! LeslieG, great experience!

We signed up for our first RLC Cruise (VI) 15 months in advance and counted down the days the entire time. I worried myself that it couldn’t possibly meet my own mountain-high expectations after that long wait. It absolutely did. Every band that we saw played at an amazing level (and some of them are over 70!). And they cared. These groups love playing this gig. It shows.

The ship and its crew were wonderful. Food was good. We had great weather. And to top it off, the people are amazing! Such a beautiful, hip, relaxed and respectful gathering of rock fanatics. This is truly my tribe and my vibe.

Can’t make RLC VII unfortunately but we’re just waiting for the announcement for RLC VIII later this year. This cruise is rock’s best kept secret.
