Sun Princess (cruising)
Once again in this mornings' news is the worrying information about the Sun Princess yet another out break of the virus that has affected so many people.
We first went on this ship in 2007 everything was fine we took my 85 year old mother and she was very pleased with the holiday.
In 2010 there was an outbreak on the same vessel when we were on her, luckily we did not have the virus. It was a lovely cruise, one of the nicest we had been on.
Then we hear in the news another out break. Hesitantly we booked a cruise in Dec 2016 to Tasmania and return. For the first time we both had this virus which leaves the person very week after the 1 - 3 day infection. Since then this same ship has had so many passengers sick.
We always take with us sanitizing liquid and the anti bacteria soap and yes we use it. But it did nothing to protect us.
Question, how many other people have been affected by this ship, as the cruise lines blames the passengers themselves for not washing their hands after using the loo!
We don't believe that for one minute, there has to be a carrier on board.
Strange we never caught this bug on the land only this once on their ship.
