Tonight their saying they "cleaned" the ship and it went back out. Momster and I are on the Spirit in two weeks and I flipped the TV off.........can't think about it now. Getting our flu shots this week and hoping for the best.
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
Moon - hate to burst your bubble, but the flu shot you will be getting will be for the respiratory flu (influenza) not the stomach flu (norovirus or Norwalk virus.) By all means get the flu shot! This years influenza season looks to be absolutely a bear. As for the norovirus, just wash your hands frequently - best prevention!
Crown Princess 1/18/14....the NEW Me, Myself and I cruise!
Yes, wash your hands often and avoid touching your eyes with your fingers. That seems to be a real conduit for infections.
Might pack along some of those sanitary wipes to carry with you too, so you can use those after handling commonly touched things such as tour bus rails, gangway rails, and doorknobs when you can't wash.
I market Air Ionizer's, for discounts. Why don't you take one with you on a cruise or anywhere, and eliminate the worry about the Virus?
These can be plugged right into your room and are very compact.
If anyone want's more information just email me back.
I will be glad to show you then you make your own decision.
