Sickness on Island Princess
:confused: Currently returning to Vancouver on the Island after 14 beautiful days.
Suspect that the Norwalk virus id onboard.
Overnight very strict rules for handling food by passengers
has been implemented . Staff serves all the food in the Horizon Court.
All containers of salt/pepper/sugar have been removed from the tables.
Tables are sanitized after every use .All drinks (ie coffee) is poured by the
staff . The number of staff has almost tripled. Supervisor check each
cleaned table and have them recleaned if required.:-D
We saw this on the Emerald in March. The were 'red bagging' the bedding. towels, etc. from a room three doors down on one side of us and another room about six doors down on the other. I was told that the passengers in those rooms were quarantined. It did not rise to the level (2% of passengers) where Princess had to report the outbreak to the CDC. I checked after I got back. CDC - Vessel Sanitation Program - Cruise Ship Outbreak Updates
The outbreak was confirmed by the Captain at lunch on Sat May 29/2010:-)
