2 cruise ships in a week with stomach virus
Sun, 02-02-2014 - 11:02am

I saw on the news that 2 cruise ships in the last week have had hundreds of people come down with a stomach virus. It seems like I am hearing about this cruise ship stomach thing constantaly any more. A friend and I have planned a cruise for later this year and I am so concerned about this illness that seems to plague cruise ships. Has anyone here been on a ship and did you get the virus? Do you know how you got it? Could it have been prevented had you been aware of it?

The last thing on earth I want to do is spend a couple thousand bucks just to spend a couple of days puking at sea.
