I wish to cruise shortly with my family. My daughter has chronic fatigue and epstein bar virus (glandular fever - but recovering). I have heard about the pre-dinner and embarkation hand sanitizers. They sound a great idea, but I need to know if they will affect my daughter as she is very sensitive to many products. Can you please tell me what the product and dispenser is. Thanks.
It is a great idea that care is taken in cleanliness and hygiene.

Hi there Blossom,

The hand sanitizers are alcohol based and non-scented and leave no residue. Your daughter may still be exposed to air-borne viruses though.

The sanitizers are there as a precaution against surface viruses and bacteria. As a food services professional, I can tell you that most food-born illnesses are contacted by hand and surface. Many of the under-developed countries that serve as stops for the cruise lines don't have the same standards to contain food-born ilness that we would expect....so this back up system really helps to cut down the risk of contacting some of the bacteria that visitors have unknowingly come into contact with.

Have fun.
