Norwegian Cruise Line is changing its smoking policy. Effective in January, passengers will no longer be allowed to smoke in their cabins.


The line says the new policy reflects “changing guest preferences.”


Passengers will still be permitted to smoke cigarettes on cabin balconies, but cigar and pipe smoking will be prohibited even in the outdoor spaces.


The NCL move follows similar changes by other lines. In June, Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruise Lines and Holland America Line all said they would ban smoking in cabins in the near future. The new Princess policy also bans smoking on cabin balconies, but the others will continue to allow smoking on balconies.


Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Line similarly allow smoking on cabin balconies, but not in cabins.


Indoors on the 11 NCL ships, cigarette smoking is only permitted in the casino and in the cigar bars on Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Dawn and Norwegian Spirit, the line said. Guests can also smoke in designated public areas outdoors
