"Utterly pointless until you use a week of vacation and a pile of money to spend an inordinate amount of time in a little bathroom...a medical staff offering complimentary visits but refusing to provide copies of the forms you filled out...spending your non-bathroom time watching gloved and masked crews spraying and wiping anything you might touch...listening to announcements advising you that crew members will no longer shake your hand--nor should you shake anyones hand... I agree, germs are everywhere but on this cruise it was so in-your-face and now I find it is an ongoing issue with this ship."
