There is a mandatory fire drill on embarkation day. You will feel safe with all the life boats and fire extinguishers on board.

Designated smoking areas are clearly marked. You can smoke in the cigar lounges, one section of the nightclub, and the casino. There are a couple of spots on the decks where you can smoke.
There has been an update to the Stateroom Smoking Policy, as follows:
For all voyages departing after January 15th, 2012, Princess Cruises will prohibit smoking in passenger staterooms and balconies. This policy change reflects the preferences of a vast majority of our passengers who value having their primary living space (both stateroom and balcony) smoke-free. As balconies are a hallmark of Princess Cruises, we believe it is important to keep this peaceful space clear of smoke. Violations to this policy will result in a $250 fine for each occurrence, which will be charged to the passenger’s stateroom account. Keeping with the global trend toward more restrictive smoking policies and honoring the wishes of our passengers, we feel this change will enhance our onboard experience and do more to help our passengers escape completely.
