The Mercury will do it's best to have the next cruise sail out on time. They will be scrubbing the ship down with a fine tooth comb. You most likely will see extra precautionary measures on the next sailing. When this happened on Disney they wouldn't let anyone serve themselves in the buffet or self-serve coffee areas. I think it would take more than the 300plus passengers to cancel the next cruise.
Janfred,Cruise fanatic is absolutly correct. My daughter dances for a cruise line and has seen it many times, even had it herself. While really lousy, it rarely disrupts the schedule. They do extra cleaning and lots of stuff to limit contact. You will be fine. Wash your hands a lot and have fun.
