We both dislike cigarette smoke but neither of us spends any time in the casino. I've not sailed with HAL, Celebrity or Princess. My father-in-law has and prefers them to the mass market lines like RC & NCL which he sailed early on.

I guess it was a poor assumption on my part that a lack of ports and many sea days in a row would attract fewer cruisers. The prices are certainly enticing and they have to move the ships anyway. Maybe I read too much into that.
