We are cruising on the Vision of the Seas on November 26, so it is nice to see that we will have new bedding. My question is what exactly is new? Is it the mattress, mattress pad, sheets, blankets, bedspreads, pillows, or all of the above? Also, how are they different from the old?

Well, I hope they replace the bed spread. The one in our cabin on the Radiance last summer weighed in at about 25 pounds! If they want to sail a little lighter, I suggest they reduce these to a lighter bedspread. I figure that could save them quite a bit of fuel if they took out a thousand or so 25 pound blankets!

MIAMI, March 14, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Sleeping on a cruise ship never felt so good! Guests cruising with Royal Caribbean International will soon experience the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation with the introduction of a new fleet-wide bedding program. The program, designed to enhance the sleep experience, includes an extreme makeover from bed frames to covers and includes:
http://www.marketwatch.com/News/Stor...fc&T rack=201
* New bed frames designed to prevent sagging; * Nine-inch-thick spring mattresses with separate two-inch-thick micro-fiber pillow tops; * 220-thread-count long-staple cotton-blend sheets; * Two micro-fiber pillows, plus one decorative pillow; * Duvet with cotton-blend covers; * Bed skirts; and * Colored bed scarves placed at the end of the beds to protect the duvet.
"Though we think bedtime is the last thing on anyone's mind while on a Royal Caribbean cruise, we do realize that sleeping well is essential to our guest's vacation experience," said Adam Goldstein, president. "As with other Royal Caribbean enhancements, our new bedding program will provide our guests with a compelling stateroom experience."
The cruise line also has created a solution to the dreaded gap that invariably forms when two twin beds are pushed together to form one larger, queen-size bed. Custom-designed pillow tops are doubled over when placed atop twin beds, but are unfolded and laid on top of one another and the mattresses to create a queen-size, gap-free mattress.
The new bedding program will make its debut in May on Royal Caribbean's newest ship, Freedom of the Seas, and will be rolled out to the rest of the fleet by May 2007.
Royal Caribbean International is a global cruise vacation company with 19 ships in service and two under construction, including Freedom of the Seas. The company also offers unique cruisetour vacations in Alaska, Canada and Europe. Additional information can be found on the company's web site at http://www.royalcaribbean.com or by calling 800-327-6700.

As the Brits say " Mind the Gap".

I didn't think this was a big deal UNTIL we just cruised on the "Golden Princess!" Wife was very impressed with the bedding and are very glad it will be waiting for us on the "Navigator" in April.
