Ok, for those of you who've been on these boards have seen my name pop up here and tehre. I've been reasearching, buying clothes for three months now. My cruise is Monday and ... I'm sick!!! Well I've been bed ridden the last 2 days. Today is my first day up and about but I feel so weak. I have a throat infection. I'm on Biaxin. I stopped taking teh painkillers because they had me feeling drugged up and dizzy. I'm sure by Monday I'll be better....hopefully. Is it ok for me still to go? I just can't miss this!!! Shannon

Of course it's ok! You may want to get a statement from your doctor about your diagnosis - though you don't have what sound like SARS symptoms, you may be questioned about your illness. If you really feel terrible, and if you purchased travel insurance, you should be able to cancel based on illness and be reimbursed (so you can book a cruise later on). However, if your antibiotics are working and you are feeling better, then go - take it easy the first few days, and relax. Check with your doctor about his/her advice for your trip. Good luck!

Hi Shannon,

I agree with Karen, and I also recommend getting a written statement from your doctor containing your diagnosis. The cruise lines are obviously very much concerned because of SARS, and virtually all of them require you to fill out some kind of questionnaire at embarkation.

I hope you will feel much better soon, and enjoy your cruise!

Best regards,
