Four long term care facilities in my area have outbreaks of Noro. When will this make the news......NEVER! And there are more to come plus the schools, day care and hospitals that will get sick too. Plus the respiratory flu (influenza) is hitting strong this year....when will that make the news?

BTW - I hope and pray that Noro will not make an appearance at the facility where I work at this year, but odds are we are going to get hit sooner or later.

When a facility on land gets hit, there is no "glamour" in at, as it is perceived by the millions of people who have not cruised....the words vacation, cruise, Caribbean, etc, all make the front page, and, top story on the news....

Its reported that by the time the ship got back to the port there had been no more outbreaks on the ship and everyone had recovered.
As for Royal they say its the worst case in 20 years.
