They do on some of the Carnival ships - the Splendor, the Magic, the Dream, and the Breeze all have the "Spa cabins" -- these cabins allow unlimited access to the Cloud 9 Spa facilities (treatments still cost) and are ALL non-smoking, including the balconies - you have to sign a form stating that you will pay a $250 fine if you're caught smoking ANYWHERE -- these cabins are usually on the top two Forward decks -- we've stayed in them twice now and LOVE them.
I just posted a report on the Maiden Voyage of the Carnival Breeze. I do not know where the smoke was coming from, but I would say that half of the time there was very noticable cigar smoke on our 9th deck forward balcony. Even with the ship moving and a strong wind, it was still there. This is the first time I have had a major problem with balcony smoking. We were not happy with that.
We returned from our cruise on the Carnival Magic on May 20. I'm happy to report we had no problem with smoke on our balcony. Thouroughly enjoyed our cruise, except for a little too much rain in the Bahamas.
