Perhaps you should carry lots of Purel around to keep cleaning your child's hands rather than cancel the cruise. Ultimiately, though, it has to be your decision and what you're most comfortable with.

I agree with you. We live in NY state but are currently in England visiting family. Both countries have the flu. I can be an overanxious parent (my six month old is our first) but I also take the view that you can't stop living just because of fear. He could contract the flu anywhere I guess... I'll just have to be extra careful.
