No cruises for me, thanks.

British line ends cruise early after hundreds of passengers fall ill

According to the USA Today article, 36% of passengers had a norovirus-like illness!  That’s 289 people vomiting and running to the bathroom with diarrhea.  Yuck.  And it’s the third outbreak for this cruise ship.

I will never go on a cruise.  Cruise ships are just outbreaks waiting to happen.  Hundreds of people confined to a ship, eating the same food, drinking the same water, swimming in the same pool, sharing the same chairs.  When someone gets sick, it’s bound to spread widely and quickly.  A cruise ship is just one giant viral incubator.  Plus, once you’re sick, there’s no where to go until the ship can dock.

No thanks.
