Smile Sickness on Island Princess

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
