Default Re: so how do people get sick on board then...?

[quote="ESIURC_ROVEL"]So when people get sick or that virus thingy from a cruise...where does that happen then?quote]

That virus thingy is better known as the Norwalk Virus. It come from people not washing their hands after using the bathroom. The water on the ship is actually of better quality than the tap water at home.
