Can you post a link to the site that posts new outbreaks of the Norwalk Virus? I went to CDC.gov and could not find it.

My friend just got of of the Mercury today and she said more than 100 were sick for the second week in a row.

I am on the Galaxy on 4/13 and want to check out if their are any issues.

Thanks.

here is the link that will take you to the list of ships which have been affected. however, not all outbreaks may be on this list as the medical facilities are only required to report an outbreak when it affects a certain % of people on board (I think it is about 8%). The key to not getting sick is washing your hands frequently, carry a small bottle of hand sanitizer. I heard that eating yogurt (has active cultures in it) can help prevent Norovirus... but not sure if it is myth or fact. Still... I always have one for breakfast on my cruises and have been fortunate not to get sick.

You can also go to cruisejunkie and find out 'incidents' that happened at sea. This lists illnesses; as well as, other events. I won't give the link, don't want to break any rules. Just add a dot com.
