Sis...you really can get just as sick at a resort, all-inclusive or not, just as easy as you can get sick on a ship. Thankfully I have never gotten sick on a ship. I've been on 31 cruises. I'm going on another one next week. Like others, I'm very hopeful I will not get sick. I do believe that you MUST keep your hands as clean as possible. It is so easy to take a moment and go wash your hands thoroughly. I also carry a small bottle of Purell hand sanitizer with me at almost all times. If I were you, I would go ahead and cruise. It is such a wonderful way to vacation. Sure, maybe there were 150-250 people who were sick, but what about the other 3000-3200 who didn't get sick on the ship? While the problem is real, I feel that it is often not put into perspective. Hope you decide to cruise!
