I have not heard of any compensation other than the last Princess cruise. I would highly suggest getting travel insurance. We were on the Crown Princess in December when they had an outbreak. The cruise line took all self-serve items away, including salt and pepper, silverware, napkins, and you could not serve yourself even a glass of water. They announced via newsletter, television, and public address system. They opened many of the public restroom doors and advised you to use a paper towel to open the stalls and any door that you needed to. They also advised hand washing, set up extra sanitizing areas, and had the staff wiping down the elevator buttons, hand rails, and door handles continuously. I felt so bad for the crew! We did not contract the disease, thankfully.
