Carnival Smoking Areas by Ship – Where You Can Smoke on a Carnival Cruise

All Carnival cruise ships offer at least one designated smoking area on board. Here’s where you can smoke on a Carnival cruise.

Listen to this article

For smokers, it’s important to know where you can light up (and where you can’t!) while onboard. Carnival Cruise Line provides designated smoking areas across its fleet to ensure a pleasant and inclusive experience for everyone.

As attitudes toward smoking have evolved over the years, cruise lines have adapted to provide designated areas for smokers and vapers. These areas not only ensure the comfort of non-smoking guests but also cater to those who wish to smoke.

All Carnival cruise ships offer at least one outdoor designated smoking area on board.

Smoking Areas on Carnival Cruise Ships

Here’s an overview of the smoking areas you can find on Carnival Cruise ships:

Smoking areas on designated outdoor decks:

Carnival Cruise Line offers designated outdoor decks where smoking is permitted. Carnival ships will offer at least one large sheltered smoking area, and many also feature smaller smoking sections that are more open to the elements.

Smoking areas in the casino

For guests who enjoy both gaming and smoking, the casino provides a convenient option on most sailings (the casino is entirely non-smoking on Carnival cruises from Australia).

However, Carnival does have several important rules about smoking in their casinos, including:

  • Smoking and vaping are only allowed in the smoking section while seated and actively playing
  • Smoking pipes or cigars is prohibited
  • For casinos with bar seating, smoking is prohibited at the bar

Good to know: On embarkation and disembarkation days, smoking is not allowed while the ship is refueling. Consider choosing a later arrival time to minimize the inconvenience on embarkation day.
