Nightmare Diarrhea Cruise Ship 2: Electric Poogaloo

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSickScary!Travel

cruise ship norovirus royal caribbean gross awful scary

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: We're not sure why people want to go on cruises!

It's not that they couldn't potentially be fun, it's just that the odds of it being horrible outweigh that potential, and we've NEVER heard of anyone having an amazing time on one. Seems like the scam of the century, especially when you realize how often illness strikes the passengers — and the norovirus is def something you do NOT want while stuck in the middle of the ocean!

This is probably sounding all to familiar at this point, but more than 100 people aboard the ship Vision of the Seas (Royal Caribbean) got sick with a gastrointestinal virus. You know, a common but potent virus that most likely is transmitted by fecal contamination in food or water. That's right, experts are pointing to the norovirus!

The crew says they scrubbed the ship as soon as they heard, to stop the spread — but 105 people tell us it didn't work! LOLz! They say they scrubbed the ship AGAIN when they got to port!

The cruise ship industry should be worried at this point. We'd say that there might not be a need to worry had this been the same company as the last time — as we'd just blame that company — but this was an entirely different group and different ship!

Gross. Spend your money on something where you don't have to barf while packed like sardines on a constantly undulating vessel!

    I've been on two cruises over the last couple of years and guess what? I had an AMAZING time on both trips. There's risks anytime you take a vacation anywhere.

    We went on a cruise aboard Norwegian Cruiselines last year and it was EXCELLENT. Of course if you are one of those disgusting ppl who don't wash their hands after going to the washroom or touch everything and then touch your eyes or nose you could very well get sick. We had a terrific time and wouldn't hesitate to go again.

    Norwegian Cruise Lines is probably the best large cruise company. They really take customer satisfaction seriously. AVOID Carnival and Royal Caribbean. They're terrible.

    I've been on Carnival and Norwegian. I had a great time on both although I got a 24 hour bug while on Carnival. Norwegian I got sea sick but I get motion sickness pretty easy. It hasn't deterred me from going on my 3rd cruise in 2 months. Like another poster said..there is risk involved with any vacation. I got food poisoning at 4-star all inclusive resort in cabo and it sucked. My parents are cruise fanatics. They've been on 5 or 6 so far and they're last one was a 12-day cruise! To say no one has ever had an AMAZING time on a cruise is a bad blanket statement.

    My uncle and his partner have been on over 20 cruises and have never had a bad experience. My parents have been on half a dozen, I've been on three, and my friend who was a huge cruise skeptic had a great time last fall on a cruise. Like others have said, all vacations have their risks. Not fair to bash cruises because 2 out of the thousands that sail every month have had problems.
