MSC Expands Smoke Free Areas For Divina’s Caribbean Sailings

Following a recent wave of cruise line’s altering their onboard smoking policies, MSC Cruises has altered the smoking policies for the MSC Divina’s Caribbean sailings.

Here is the full statement from MSC:

“Effective November 2nd, when MSC Divina’s Grand Voyage departs Venice en route to Miami, smoking areas on MSC Divina will be limited to two general areas:  the Cigar Lounge and port side of designated outside decks (away from all bars and food areas).  The Top Sail Lounge, located in the prestigious and private MSC Yacht Club, and the Black & White Lounge will also become 100% non-smoking.  In addition, the casino has been designated as non-smoking.  At the discretion of the casino manager, smoking will be occasionally allowed for playing guests, during certain hours and in limited areas that will be clearly designated as smoking permitted.

As with all other MSC ships, smoking will continue to be prohibited in staterooms, on balconies, and in corridors, elevators, stairways, and public bathrooms.”

Previously, guests were able to smoke in the casino, Black & White Lounge, Top Sail Lounge (Port Side).

The MSC Divina will begin sailing year round Caribbean cruises from Miami in November.

Recently, Royal Caribbean, Cunard, Disney, P&O, and Seabourn have altered their onboard smoking policies. The recent changes in cruise line’s smoking policies will create for a safer and cleaner environment for guests sailing aboard many cruise lines.
