P&O Cruises is to go smoke free in all inside areas on board three of the ships in the fleet from October this year.
Two family-friendly ships, Oceana & Ventura, and adult-only Artemis will be no smoking in all inside spaces. There will be allocated outside smoking areas on all ships and passengers will be able to smoke on their cabin balconies.
P&O Cruises managing director, Nigel Esdale, said: “Since Britain went smoke free in July 2007 the British public has become accustomed to being in a smoke free environment with 76 per cent of the general public supporting the ban*. We hope that becoming smoke free will give all our
passengers, especially children, a cleaner and more pleasant environment in
which at enjoy their holiday on board.”
