Default Anyone who cruised Destiny, April 16-20, 2009, please read

Just curious if anyone else had been diagnosed with the swine flu from this trip? My son and I both were officially diagnosed several weeks ago, although my husband and other son did not ever come down with it. We spent less than 5 hours in Cozumel, we got into a taxi, went to Playa Mia, came back, and that was it! I came down with the flu on April 30th, my son did on May 3rd. It was not the worst flu that I ever had, although the cough stayed with me for more than 10 days. And my sons' case was even milder.
I am just asking out of curiosity, I can't believe that I was the only one from that voyage who got it!

So sorry you got infected. Glad to hear your symptoms were not to bad, and that entire family did not get ill.
It may not even have been your 5 hours that mattered but it could have come from another passenger. Hopefully it did not impact too many, but it is a cautionary tale for those who didn't go to Mexico over the last month.

The incubation period from newspaper sources say the incubation period is from one to three days so it appears that you did not contact the flu in Mexico according to when you were there and when you came down with it.

Well, I hate to disagree, but that is the most logical place, according to my doctors and the local department of health. We were the 1st and 2nd cases in our county, and Ohio has only had 13 cases. Sure, it could have been from the ship or the plane, but we disembarked on the 20th, and flew home that day.
