Smoking Policy - For the comfort and enjoyment of all guests, Royal Caribbean ships are designated as non-smoking. However, there are certain public and private areas where smoking is allowed.
Smoking in public areas is only permitted in designated smoking sections, which vary by ship. Generally, smoking is permitted outdoors on only one side of the ship, and on all private oceanfront balconies, including Loft Suite balconies. To assist in locating areas where smoking is permitted,you will find visible signage posted within all smoking areas and ashtrays that are provided for your use.
For safety reasons smoking is NOT permitted inside any stateroom or on private balconies that overlook The Boardwalk or Central Park. Smoking is NOT permitted in any dining venues, food outlet, theater, hallway, corridor, Central Park, The Boardwalk or the Jogging Track.
Pipe or cigar smoking is only permitted within the Cigar Lounge on applicable ships. Special Dietary Needs - Advance Notice Required - Royal Caribbean will make every effort to accommodate guests' dietary requirements whenever possible. They can accommodate dietary needs such as:
- Food allergies
Vegetarian Meals (including Indian-style vegetarian) are available on all menus in the Dining Room and Windjammer Cafe every day. Guests do not need to make a special request for these meals.
