ya.. just over 100 people out of a shipload got Noro Virus and it made CNN.

Bizarre if you ask me! Can't imagine what they'd do if there was any kind of major sickness in the world

This is a blurb about what happened..This happens all over, in large confined areas..but when it's on a ship it gets headlines! 100 out of the entire ships population is hardly that newsworthy...



Six days into a cruise from San Diego to Mexico's Pacific Coast, more than 100 passengers on Holland America's Ryndam fell sick to the highly contagious norovirus.

Norovirus causes nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and lasts 24-48 hours.
As the virus gained momentum, passengers were asked to stay in their cabins and were compensated $100 a day for their troubles. The ship, which was carrying 1,226 passengers and 556 crew members visited several ports in Mexico's Sea of Cortez after leaving San Diego Feb. 15.

How do we know it wasn't just Montezuma's Revenge?
