There are lots of e-cigs on the market and most look nothing like a cigarette so just buy one that doesn't and it will save all the "holier than thou" crew from having to strain their eyes through the haze of water vapour to check if they should cough or not ;) (yes that is a joke)

I thought it was a charger that blew up?  Anyway it is only those devices which people have bought from a street trader or market stall which are likely to blow up because they are (very good) fakes.

Waves49 so far all chargers which have blown up have been bought cheap on market stalls and on-line it clearly states on e-cigs to use the charger provided which is safe and complies with safety standards if bought at a reputable source. As the old staying goes you buy cheap you get cheap.

I take on board your comments but how does the ship security know if they are cheapo chargers or not?

I have no problem with smoking outside in designated areas and will avoid them as one wiff will tighten my chest and bring on an Asthma attack. It's a quick and easy as that!

An acquaintance of mine uses them and the charger consists of a conventional plug that you put a usb into with a screw end. You screw the battery onto it. Its not more than an inch long. It can even be put into the usb of a laptop to charge it.

Good morning annie

 

The problem with killing yourselves in the comfort of a nice lounge bar usually means the discomfort of others. I'm afraid you got it right when you said "or should I say outcast!!"   It's outside in the wind and rain for you I'm afraid. ;)

 

cheers

Totally support this view. Many years ago I ran a pub. It was quite staggering that smokers at the bar thought it perfectly acceptable to blow their smoke in my face while I was serving customers. Just how would they have felt if I had spat in their beer.

 

The answer was fairly easy. I banned smoking at the bar and in the eating area and had one designated area where their chosen pastime could not impact on those who didn't share their desire for inhaling smoke.

I actually would like to see no smoking in any public area and definitely no smoking on any decks. Our habit is to walk the prom deck late evening after dinner and show, only to have it spoilt by the pandered to drug addicts getting their bedtime fix of nicotine and choking the innocent with their smoke.

E-cigs are a pest, maybe no smoke but certainly second hand nicotine vapour.....no thanks. We've watched plonkers on Oriana in Mqrch 2014 sneaking their ludicrous e-fag out of their pockets for a crafty drag sat in the front centre of the theatre. Complaints by passengers brought no action from the staff/crew/Ents team. Good to hear they've been banned.

Can't they build a fully filtered smoking chamber, maybe inside the funnel?, and make it swipe card entry only for passengers who register as nicotine inhalation addicts, and they can pay an appropriate supplement to cover the costs. They could have a tooth brushing and mouth washing and deoderising facility included?

He Ho!

 If people choose to smoke that's their choice.. What you don't realise and can't ever do anything about is that I know hundreds of people have vaped in ur cabin before u was there.. Smoke alarms do not go off and it leave no smell for stewards when they go in to clean.. I know there are 1000s of people vaping in cabins.. I'm on fb and there's also a group called p&o cruises.. Soooo many have admitted to vaping in the rooms.. I'm an ex smoker.. So it don't bother me but sympathise with the smokers.. 

JUst like I know exactly how people are sneaking booze on ships undetected by staff.. Pretty genius really I'm to scared to do it 😂.. 

If u do not wish to inhale the 2nd hand smoke then just stay clear of designated smoking areas..

I have never seen more than half a dozen passengers vaping on any cruise I have been on, so unless most are only vaping in the cabins then your estimate of thousands seems way off the mark.

Reading yesterday that 2million people started Vaping last year, they may  healthier than cigs ,but that does not mean they are risk free?

Just like having a baby's dummy IMO ,the older smokers are using vaping to get of smoking ,but the young vapers are getting into smoking via vaping.Not surprising that most of the patents for vaping products are owned by Tobacco companies.....Davybe
