No vaccine. On land we usually call it "stomach flu" and it receives no special attention. For some reason when it happens on a crusie ship it becomes a dangerous epidemic. Just take reasonable precautions like washing hands and availing yourself of hand sanitizers on board and you will have done all you can to prevent it.

Have a great cruise!!!
