RC Majesty of the Seas is not changing the beds between cruises


My husband and I took a group cruise with couples on the RC Majesty of the Seas for Valentines Day. I have always told people that Royal Caribbean is the top cruise line in my opinion. this was my 11th or 12th Cruise. Unfortunately, in the middle of the first night I threw off the covers to get up and I find a blood stained bandage in the bed. I am appalled and sickened. I go to the desk and tell them at 4am. The supervisor of the room people comes and talks with me about 9 am. I tell him what happened and show him the bandage. He apologizes and tells me they will changes my sheets everyday. My question is why did you not change them before i got on the ship. He takes the blood stained bandage and leaves and comes back later with a bottle of wine. (I do not drink). My health has been risked by being in contact with someone else's blood and all RC offers me is a bottle of wine and after i reject that $25 ship credit. I was very calm and did not act a fool. maybe if i had of screamed and told everyone on the ship and showed them the pictures then they would have done something. Later when i go to the desk again because nothing had been done the desk person gives me $100 shipboard credit. I am really disappointed that nothing more was done for me nor did they really care that this was a health risk and they did not seem surprised that their sheets are not being changed. when i get home i email RCCI and I have attached the response. I should have shown the pictures all around the ship, but i did not because i thought Royal Caribbean cared that i am a frequent cruiser with them. Since they did not seem to care I am going to see if any news stations or media outlets will run my story. A blood stained bandage is just nasty.
