"completely non-allergenic micro-fiber fill"

Wow! If they used the same pillows on the Fantasy (which seems likely), I have to report that I had a major reaction to them last month. And this was within a minute or 2 of lying back on them just to browse the Navigator!

I don't necessarily disbelieve the "non-allergenic" statement, but I wondered if the pillows were treated with fire-resistant chemicals, similar to how couches and mattresses are treated. I've been known to have some reaction to that stuff, so I concluded that it may be the same source for my reaction. Of course, with the pillows being so new, I think those chemicals are fresher and stronger.

Anyway, my allergy manifests as a squeezing in the windpipe, so we immediately removed the pillows and our Stateroom Host replaced them with those synthetic, foam, shaped pillows. My family wasn't thrilled with the replacement pillows, but there was NO WAY I could be near the regular ones.

Since the foam pillows were also likely fire treated, I don't know what to conclude. Bottom line, the regular "nice" pillows were a huge problem for me. (Maybe it's the micro-fiber fill after all???)

Just reporting my experience in case anyone else has this kind of allergy or sensitivity.

The pillows used to be from Wamsutta, and they still are sold online. I bought some at Macy's for $19.99 each recently. They are gel foam/down and boy are they comfortable! They come in three types from firm to soft. They used to be sold at Sam's Club but since I let our membership expire there I'm not sure if they're still available and it sounds as though they are not the same as the ones sold by Harbor Linen. We are sailing on the Fantasy in September and I'm looking forward now to checking them out.

I love the sheets they use!!!! They are Frette and very expensive. Does anyone know what the name of the sheets they use are (Hotel Collection etc.)? I know on a thread that someone said they were sold in one of the shops on board, Has anyone seen them and know what Disney charges? I am determined to get a set one day....maybe to go with the pillows???

Just came from the Dream, the pillow I was looking for was one that came in a few varieties, side sleeper, snore relief, etc..it was a memory foam pillow and looking to find it online. Does not appear to be what has been previously posted. Any ideas?

They don't ship to Canada guess I will have to ship to someone I know in the US, then have them ship to me. What I really want is the mattress they have!!!!! It was by far the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in!!!

After loving those pillows on several cruises I finally bit the bullet and bouth some and Fedex just dropped them off! I can't wait to go to sleep tonight. Maybe I'll have to take an afternoon nap.

I was googling these pillows because I loved them so much and wondering if this is what is causing my bad allergies on the ship!
