Was on 2/18/01 cruise also. We talked to many people who had been sick, including a number of crew members. Some reported they were sick Monday, others different times during the week. A lady at our table got sick Wednesday night after eating salmon. She tried to blame it on the salmon until my husband said he had also had salmon, and he was never sick. I believe it was not food poisoning, but a stomach virus which can sweep through a school, office or a cruise ship with alarming speed. It is unfortunate that so many people were sick and did not get to enjoy the full cruise.
