well today is sail day. We have been notified to come 4 hrs later to board because of an outbreak of the "Virus" BUMMER!!! We hope they clean the ship really well. Looks like rain today. Hoping for the best. Will keep in touch

There seems to be something about the Island Princess that attracts the Norovirus ! We had the same problem on our Dec 4 th sailing & it appears that it's lingering around. On the other hand, the crew on the Caribbean Princess last week couldn't care less about anyone using antibacterial lotion & no virus problems were noted. Strange.

I don't know what happened to Marylu. I was looking forward to her posts from the Island Princess, but have heard nothing. Hopefully, the Norovirus did not get her. The ship must be getting close to Hilo.

Hopefully she is having so much fun she just hasn't had time to post.
It is curious though; they should have arrived in Hilo this morning. Maybe they are late due to the late departure from L.A..

Marylu, you have a lot of people concerned about your whereabouts and your well-being. We're praying that you are o.k.

Judging from the web cam, the ship is just pulling into Hilo as we speak. Maybe we will hear from Marylu later on today.

Still waiting for Marylu to give us an update on her cruise. We are departing on Feb. 25 when she returns and are interested if they resloved the Norovirus and how the seas were during her crossings.

Calling Marylu !!!

I have been watching these posts since I too am sailing on the IP 2-25-07. Have also been posting on Cruise Critics with a group who sailed on 2-10. We have not heard from them since they sailed. Can only assume the internet is not functioning. Hope you hear from Marylu soon as we are all wondering how the cruise is going.
