Has anyone heard about the Mercury being sick. I have read on some other sites that the Mercury has had a large number of the passengers get sick on the last 3 cruises.Has anyone else heard about this?

Nothing specific. But it has been a nasty flu season!

Hi Thomas,

take a look at this site, interesting stuff:


You can also find the outbreaks from former years on all reported ships.

Very iteresting. The Mercury had 2 bout's in 10 day's. That is not as bad as reported on another site.It look's like royal carribean has had the most so far for 06. Of course they have a lot more ship's than celebrity. Tom

I was on the Mercury from March 6 to 17th, 2006. I came back home sick as a dog. I probably contaminated people on my flights back. I did not have time to report it to the ship's doctor because the symptoms started the day of disembarkation.

But Mercury is not the only ship that has problems like that.

I was wondering if the fact that they take in water in Acapulco (7th day) and Manzanillo (9th day) if that does not contribute to the problem.

Hi Oppis,
wie ist der Ausbruch zu bewerten?
Ich bin im Juli für einen Alaska cruise gebucht.
Hängt es am Wasser aus Mexico oder sind das Risiken, wie inzwischen in jedem deutschen Krankenhaus, deren OPs von Viren versäucht sind?

Sorry community. From German to German.
Mainquestion: Is it a serios problem? We are booked in July on Mercury.

I don't think I'd be blaming all the sickness on the ships. As Karen said it has been a nasty flu season. It was right around mid march my husband came down with it, and passed it on to me four days later. And we haven't been near a ship since Feb 7th.

I took a cruise on Mercury of Celebrity cruise lines. We left 3/27/06 from San Diego for 11 nights on the Mexican "Riviera". It was eleven nights of hell. The two cruises prior to ours had norovirus outbreaks. 107 became sick on the cruise prior to ours. AFTER they get you on board ship they spray EVERYTHING with bleach. Get it on your hands or clothes and you are in trouble. I walked into my bathroom on the first day, sat down on the toilet and it was totally covered with wet bleach. I could barely see in the mirror to shave. Some people got sick. Don't know how many. DO NOT GET ON MERCURY!!!
