I read this morning about a stomach illness on the Mariner:
As fate would have it, I am booked on this exact ship and itinerary in March. What are your recommendations for dealing with the cruise lines if any of my family gets this? I am in health care, and will be bringing an arsenal of prescription medications for anything that might come up (pardon the pun), so I am not worried about the "health" end. My concern is spending $12,000 to perhaps spend a week deciding whether to sit or stand over a toilet, and then getting only a hardy slap on the back from the cruise lines on the way out.
Are there insurance policies to cover this specific concern? Do the cruise lines do anything for these passengers?
Thanks in advance!
