Kings, if you ask any doctor this illness is not food borne. I believe you are mistaken about that. My daughter had it on the Monarch two years ago. She like your husband is a fanatic about washing her hands and not touching things. If your son saw a doctor on the ship they have to report it. If he was not on the list it must have been an error. Frankly I thought RCCL was generous in giving us compensation for the number of days she was sick. I'm sorry to hear that you were treated poorly. The staff of the Monarch could not have been any nicer to us. They were just wonderful. This is not a unknown disease or a strange disease just associated with cruise ships. It is found everywhere ask any doctor. It is just reported on the news when a ship has a group sick. They had to close a school in Michigan earlier this year because of the disease and it did not make the news.
