Myself and my husband are from England and currently live in NY state. Dan (husband) booked a Carnival Eastern Caribbean cruise for us, my parents and our 6 month old baby. It was fine despite the strong sun etc. We were very prepared in terms of baby sunblock etc. The flu thing is over NY, England and everywhere so my point of view was that if God wanted to take my little one it could happen anywhere, but that's just me hun, I'm am optimist.
