I don't understand why they are confiscated, but oh well.
I have a great little steamer made by SIlton. i bought it at walmart for about $20. Works like a dream, and doesn't take a lot of room in the suit case.
After all the discussion of bed bugs on other cruise lines (and other boards), when we took our last cruise, I also used the steamer for a quick pass of the bed lineens and pillows. I'm not sure what the steam temp is on my steamer but it does get pretty hot, I figured it couldn't hurt.
