Three P&O Cruises ships are to go smoke free in all inside areas from October this year.
Family-friendly ships Oceana and Ventura and adult-only ship Artemis will be no smoking in all inside spaces but will have allocated outside smoking areas. Passengers will be able to smoke on their cabin balconies.
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. We hope that becoming smoke free will give all our passengers, especially children, a cleaner and more pleasant environment in which to enjoy their holiday on board.”
He added that 76% of the general public supported the smoking ban, according to a Department of Health report a year after the ban was introduced.
