Default do they wash /change the blankets & bedspreads

you know what I heard a woman was was bitten by bed bugs on a cruise ship. Almost oll over her body. Apparently, the ship staff didn't change sheets as they should or their products for cleaning germs etc. from the sheets and spreads aren't effective.

San - your room steward will clean your stateroom twice during the day. Total cleaning, changing the entire bed linens. Bed bugs are a rare occurance on cruise ships, they have to be brought on board by a passenger. I always check the bed linens and shake the bedspread before getting into bed.

We've been on several cruises with no problems. Bed bugs are brought in by people and even the most expensive hotels can have them. It's not necessarily a hygeine issue with the establishment, but with their patrons. You can see bed bugs so if you are nervous, just pull back the covers and look between the sheets to see if you see anything crawling around. If not...sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite.
