A Florida couple was treated after being bitten by hundreds of bed bugs during a vacation cruise on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, according to Local 6 News.

Alan and Nathalie Wasserstorm said their vacation aboard the Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas was ruined by the infestation of bed bugs.

"I was in such disbelief at first, you know, I mean, it was hundreds and hundreds of bugs, we had leaned against all the night before, I mean it literally made my skin crawl," Alan Wasserstorm said.

The couple moved to another room on the ship but it was too late, according to the report.

Jeez, as if Norwalk wasn't enough. Now it's bring your own Immodium and some bug spray.

I am thinking that is a fairly new ship.

Royal Caribbean apologized to the couple and refunded $2,800 for the tickets. The company declined to reimburse them for medical care or hotel expenses incurred while waiting to get home.

Sounds like an open and shut lawsuit to me. What the heck is Royal Caribbean thinking?

Yep. Right up there with "your face will freeze in that position" and "you'll go blind."

This ought to be as good for Royal Caribbean as the finger in the chili was for Wendy's.

After all, why should they pay for the meds and emergency trip home? When you cruise with a reputable company you take the risk of being eaten alive by vermin and flying home sick rather than having the cruise you dreamed of. makes perfect sense.
