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.
