Default Virus on RCCL Freedom of the Seas

The world's largest cruise ship was due to sail out of Miami yesterday after workers spent two days trying to scrub away all traces of a gastrointestinal virus that had made hundreds of people ill on two earlier voyages.

The cleansing of the Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas came after the Centres for Disease Control (CDC) recommended special sanitising of all high contact areas. Two doctors and 45 extra cleaning staff will also be on board as the ship sails the Caribbean.


Ouch.

yea, my dad just told me that he had originally scheduled us to sail on the Freedom next week but changed his mind and booked on the Mariner. I guess I'm kind of glad but at the same time thinking I COULD HAVE BEEN ON FREEDOM!!!!!

My dad's friend was on the ship. They had like sanitizers all over the ship and they told them to try to not touch anything! WTF! I know?! He didn't get sick though, good thing. But that sucks for all the other people. They were basically quarentined* on the ship. Sucky vacation.

hey i have nothing against hand sanitizers...but i know a lot of people dont use them!! im always washing my hands! but i still get sick! my school is really big so whatever. im never sick in the summer though! so i think the weather has something to do with it. on my last cruise i was only sick for like the first day cuz i had a cold getting on..but the whole cruise atmosphere cured me (or i had so much fun i forgot about being sick)

I'm OCD over washing my hands! They always have to be clean, or I start to flip out and cannot contol myself... Like I can't concentrate on anything else before I wash my hands, thoroughly!

Wow... I'm not OCD or anything about washing my hands but I do like to keep clean.

I used to get sick a lot when I was younger, but I guess my body is now immune to it so I'm not sick that often. If I was sick over my cruise I would be SOOOOOO mad. That would just suck!
