Mercury still sick
My friend just sent me this note:
Hello! Unfortunately, this has not been the greatest of cruises although we have met some very nice people. My husband got sick on Monday night and we have been quarrantined to our cabin. Mysonand I have been let out this afternoon but my husband has another 24 hours of confinement. He got that Norwalk virus-My son and I are fine though....strange. We have all taken the necessary precautions. But, we missed alot...not very nice. They have been decent about it-there will be no charge for the medical treatment he received and the medications. Oh well...first time in 12 cruises this has happened. The ship looks like a war zone though. They claim that the CDC told them to spray bleach all over the ship-all mirrors, woodwork, doorways, etc are ruined-they claim they are not permitted to wash it off-so we cant lean on anything and when you touch anything-you have wet bleach on your hands-seems ridiculous. The count of sick people that have gone to the Doctor was 32 as of yesterday-which is not much at all-but there are many more that have not reported it. The ship came back with hundreds sick...this is not a USUAL occurrance so dont worry. The Doctor said they will be giving us some kind of compensation.....we will see. Well, I have just been let out of my room so I am going to walk around. Hit 720.00 the first night on a slot machine...that was a treat! Hope all is well...
