Default Anyone Else Get Sick on 8/28 Glory Cruise

We went on the 8/18 Glory Cruise. Shortly after returning home two family members had to be hospitalized, one with viral meningitis and one with pneumonia. A friend we met on the cruise, told us that someone in her group came down with an E Coli infection. I contacted Carnival Cruise lines, but they only track illnesses reported to the ships doctor, and these were all illnesses that were likely the result of exposure during the cruise but which didn't happen until shortly after the cruise due to the incubation periods

None of those illnesses are related . It seems just unfortunate that as far as you know for sure( I am not counting on friends hearsay re e coli ) 2 people out of two thousand got sick from two completely unrelated infections. Unfortunate, but not that unusaul.
Don't bother looking for anwsers to the unknown.

Why would the illnesses had to have been caused by being on the ship? Didn't you stop at ports, go on tours, eat, drink, etc. ashore ? How many thousands of people were you around that week, including going to and from your cruise?
As pg said, 2 out of 2,000 isn't bad, but on the Glory, there were probably closer to 3,000 instead of 2,000 people.
