I don't know why "norovirus" gets so much publicity when attached to cruise ships...it is much more prevalent in hospitals, care facilities, schools, and even the general population. I work in a school and more things go around there than you would believe!

I don't worry while on a cruise - cruise staff are vigilant about cleaning and anti-bacterial gel before entering eating areas. As long as YOU are vigilant about hygeine and hand washing, you shouldn't have a problem.
