Smoking Policy

Smoking (including e-cigarettes) is allowed on the ship in the following areas ONLY: *

  • Port Side of Ship in Outdoor Areas on Deck 11 (except in the Splashaway Bay kids’ water park) – When facing the pool deck stage, port side is to your right
  • Outdoor Areas on Deck 12 (except in the area above the Splashaway Bay kids’ water park)
  • Casino Royale (also has a designated non-smoking area marked with visible signs)
  • Ale & Anchor Pub on Deck 5

* 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, 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, allowing passengers to smoke in the Pub on Deck 5 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 RLC, we REALLY wanted to do this one because of Uriah Heep and The Circle. The fact that Steppenwolf, Blue Oyster Cult, and Bad Company were on it also just sweetened the pot. It was our first time seeing Todd Rundgren, Gary Hoey, Quiet Riot, Artimus Pyle and Elvin Bishop, who were all great! We caught parts of some of the other bands and unfortunately some not at all. We didn’t leave the ship at all because there just too much GREAT music!
The artist we met were all very nice. Loved the Meet and Greets. And now we have new bands to follow.
My only complaints ( and they wouldn’t stop my husband and I from returning) were the saving of the chairs with towels, and the staff in the buffet room seemed ill equipped to handle the crowds, which were predictable. Also, I thought the buffet room should have had longer daytime hours, that would have helped with tables not available. But we weren’t there for the food or the destination. We were there for the non stop music. Gary Hoey and the All Star Jam was the best surprise, we didn’t move for 3 hours, didn’t want to miss a second of that great show. Gary was a terrific host.
We will be back! Oh and fun swag too!

This was my 11th cruise overall but my First RLC! And I can simply say it’s the BEST I have been on. It was more than anything I could have imagined. Everyone was there for one purpose, and that was to ROCK OUT! I loved all the bands, I loved how everyone was just happy (tough to come across now adays). I am HOOKED. I initially didn’t think I’d be able to attend VII, (going on a Hawaiian cruise in April 2019), but I’m working it to make it happen (my suite mates already booked me so I have a room, just gotta figure out $$-but I’LL BE THERE). I met so many great people, the music is my genre of music and it’s just a great time! Looking forward to many more, and it really is for a great cause (NAHA). m/ ROCKSTAR!!!!
