Default WooHoo Just booked my 1st Cruise

I am so excited I am going to burst. My Dh and I are going with my BFF and her SO. I am so jazzed. except it's 7 months away. Ugh....how will I make it.

Anyway I had a few questions: I read almost the entire new cruisers thread, but something I am really worried about is Bed Bugs. Am I being over anxious? The thought of bringing them home freaks me ok. How many of you experienced cruisers have encountered them?

Other than that this site has been Awesome. I have learned so much!!!

Congrats on booking your 1st cruise!! It's going to become addictive.

I've been cruising for 3 years now and haven't had a problem with any bed bugs.

Welcome to Cruisemates,and congrats on your booking...This is the place to while away the time, while you await your cruise...[the cruisers waiting room.]

If we can help you in any way,just give a shout, we will be glad to help.

You can only hope the previous cruisers have not brought them in...When you get to the cabin, lift up the sheets,and check the corners of your mattress for the little buggers...if you see pinpoints of blood, this is another sign of infestation...Get to your cabin steward asap, or call the pursers desk.
