Default Prime Time Last Night

Did anyone see Prime time last night.......well it show some really disgusting stuff on ships......Princess, Carnival, RCI and Holland. Were the four ships they were referring to. They showed how there were seamen stains on walls, bathroom handles, blankets, ice tray, front of refrigerator door, and urine stains on floor, phone, carpet.......it was terrible. They also said that noro virus is from food and the pool water, public bathrooms.....that had a soap dispenser in there that never worked. So how clean can some be if they aren't washing their hands. Makes you think about going away.

No, I missed that one. What are seamen stains? Are these stains the crew (sea men)leaves on the walls? Urine stains on the phones? Disgusting! I may never cruise again.... Nah, I'll take my chances.

This is nothing new. This happens all the time and makes great headlines. I have seen similar broadcasts on hotels in the past. Nevertheless, we all have to be prudent when we cruise these days. Always carry a can of Lysol or similar product to spray your room and especially areas such as the outside of the refrig, bed, bathroom etc. Even though we would love to trust our hosts, we can't leave protecting our health to them.

Also carry a bottle of Germ X, a hand sanitizer with you at all times, when possible, Guess we can't take it along at Captain's formal night but take sanitizer wipes then.

The problem with stains etc. as described in the broadcast is not limited to one cruise line as you can see, so protect yourself as best as possible.

Nevertheless, don't worry, have a great cruise but be careful as much as possible.

Yeah , this is nothing new. I've saw these stories where they have went into all these hotels and found the same things wrong. I dont like it but I dont think you can get away from it unless you carry everything from home when you go on a trip. We do just like the previous person to respond, that is to take lysol and other germ killing items with us. Hopefully its doing good. Lets hear it for the Sovereign of the Seas July 4th!

I always carry Lysol and spray in hotel rooms and cruise cabins, especially doorknobs, phones, remote control, etc. Wash your hands and enjoy the clean salt air...hopefully all is well!

I think Dateline recently did a story on subways, gyms, hotels, etc that showed similar if not worse results, so its not just limited to ships. You can pick up anything anywhere. Look at that commercial on tv where the guy comes out of the bathroom and starts to shake someones hand, and another guy sneezes into his hands, pushes a grocery cart a few feet and a mom and daughter end up using that cart. How about after going to the bathroom and you take the time to wash your hands, yet you grab the door handle on the way out. Guess whats on that doorhandle! I carry a bottle of Purell with me all the time for that reason!

I carried a can of Lyesol with me for years when staying in hotels or cruising and have also started carrying bleach wipes and hand sanitizers. This is definitely not just limited to cruise ships and hotels. As a previous poster pointed out, its at public restrooms, gyms, grocery stores, etc.. If we all worried about it so much we'd never leave our homes. Just do you best to protect yourself and I'm sure you'll be fine.

Do you also wear rubber gloves when you handle money?

Almost all the things mentioned can be found in peoples homes, hotels, motels,
( car seats is always a good one ) etc. As someone mentioned, money is one of the dirtiest things you can touch. Menus at a restaurant are never washed, but handled by how many hands in a day or two ?? But apparently anything negative to do with a cruise ship just has an attraction for some.

I'm always grossed out by thought of hotel bedspreads, blankets and carpet. Sure they change the sheets but how often do they wash and change the bedspreads or blankets? I always bring an extra blanket to use instead of the hotel bedspread. Not that I will be packing one to bring on my cruise. It's true though no matter where you go you don't know what disgusting thing might be lurking. Guess I have to put lysol on my list of things to pack.
