I have a well documented case of bedbugs with more ugly pictures than I ever cared to see. I was a human buffet for 6 days on a MSC cruise out of the Netherlands. They seem to think this is a regular occurance. I’ve cruised over 20 years and traveled Europe extensively and never got bedbugs until this cruise. What can I do? It was awful and they only offered 20% off a future CARIBBEAN cruise excluding holidays! Wow-what a slap in the face! I also found a hypodermic needle under my bed on the second day. I have pictures of bugs, me, injuries, needle. I also had my husbands business partner and his wife with us! How humiliating! I want to cry just thinking about it! Please help or give me a direction to take this. MSC treated me like I was a dirty person and I was the one wronged. There is no justice that this can happen and nobody even cares.

Thank you for any advise you can give.

I traveled on Regent Seven Seas Mariner and was subjected to bed bug bites. I have photos as well as medical documentation from the doctor on the cruise ship. Can you help me?


Went on a cruise with carnival and had a terrible bug problem and it ruined our cruise! Carnival will do nothing for us!


I went on.a 7 day cruise with Carnival.and got bed bug bites. I am extremely pissed!!


I also got bed bug bites on Carnival! Dirty and disgusting. With the amount I got my cabin would have had to be infested. This should be a health hazard.


I just left a carnival cruise with a few bug bites but I didn’t even notice them. When I got home I threw my daughters luggage in her room and opened it and left it for her to deal with now SHE has bed bugs. Please tell me there is something we can do. We took her car and carry all of our luggage back in her at and it seems as if that’s infested too.


On the last night of my Carnival Cruises I experienced something biting me in my growing area. It was very small and light in color. Every since I have come home I have been having itching all over my body. I also saw something that look like lice in my hair. Something also bit my scalp and now it is bleeding. I feel like I have lice or some other parasite all over my body that I just can not see.
