Pardon my norovirus ignorance. I'm pretty new to cruising. I used to cruise back in the 70's and only recently started cruising again so the norovirus is new to me. How do you get it? I am assuming from all the posts, it is food borne?

When I was on the Freedom, the only buffet food I ate was bananas and yogurts at breakfast in the morning. We ate in the dining room only once, prefering the other restaurants on board. I don't drink soda and am a vegetarian so don't know if this makes a difference. Does this lower my chances of getting sick or does it not matter WHERE you eat when the norovirus breaks out on a cruise ship?
