Cruise Ships and Norovirus
This article is important to read for those who think norovirus is the "cruise ship disease."

I appreciated that article and it is so true. I was fortunately to be involved in only 1 Nor virus incident back in 2009 on the Celebrity Mercury (remember her!) but anyway it was leaving out of Charleston, SC and they had a huge outbreak in the Charleston schools. It was in the papers. Well someone brought it onboard ! When you are filling out those health questionnaires I always wonder about who is not feeling well and afraid to check "YES" in any of the boxes.

I was pleased when I read this report, but also surprised that the media (for the most part) handled it fairly. One exception? Perennial cruise basher CNN. They posted a report about the article but the also edited out all mention of cruises or that cruise ships were a distinct minority among the reported cases.
