The Slush: It amazes me that people still go on cruises.  Didn't this sh*t start happening regularly more than a decade ago?  Then again, I suppose we don't hear about all the cruises without issues.


Things are improving excrementally.

Salmon: siva: Norovirus transmission is fecal-oral.  That means either it's in the food, in pools, or people aren't washing their hands properly.  Regardless, it is particularly gross that fecal germs are spread that widely on cruises.

one hand in their bum, the other in the salad.


Ah, German porn. I don't miss you a bit.

People should know better than to book a cruise on a ship called Sovereign of Disease

CygnusDarius: Truth be told, I think the chances of crappy food (in more ways than one) is better than sitting at home staring at a box, only to sleep in a box, wake up and leave you living box, drive a box on wheels, work on a corporate box, and spend your days in boxes until the day you're in one forever.

I mean, if you don't want to run any risks, I suggest vegetative state. Every day we flip the coin: Paper or plastic; donut & coffee, or just the donut; ask Wendy the receptionist out on a date, or just pass by at her again, hoping she'll notice.
People die in their homes every day, and not just suicide, robbery, or assault. You might fall. trip and break your neck entering/during/after you take a shower. You might choke on food and die, you might get poisoned, you might fall on a flight of stairs, you might over-medicate or under-medicate yourself. Your dog might punch you to death; the ceiling might fall over your head; someone might hit you with a ball and you'll die...


Are you in the marketing biz for cruises? Good stuff.

I kinda want to go on one of these sick cruises ever since I had my DNA sequenced and I found out I'm resistant to Norovirus. I could rule the boat as a pirate king! Sure my subjects would be too sick to serve me but it could be a good time until they turn on me and try to make a cure out of my blood/body parts.

It is a risk vs. reward thing.  The risk of being trapped at sea on a vomit-boat where half the male crew has been convicted of a sex crime in some other country isn't worth the limited reward of being packed on a boat with several thousand people, eating shatty food and visiting tourist trap ports for a few hours.

From the stomach cramps to the nausea to the explosive diarrhea, it hits you -

under a mountain: tripleseven: fonebone77: Born_Again_Bavarian: Protip:  Don't go on a cruise during cold/flu/explosive diahrrea season (aka "winter")
Pro-protip:  Just don't go on a cruise (aka "McVacation")

Winter is the best time.  The norovirus thing can happen anytime.  In the winter you have less nasty children sneezing into their hands and touching every thing.

I think the best time to travel if you want to avoid families is September.

It's the first month of school, barely ANYONE takes vacation first month of school with their family.


GF and I always take the Caribbean vacations in Sept.  Water is warm, and little to no familes.

You are risking Huricane Season tho.

I  might give one of those Viking River cruieses in Europe a shot...doesn't look like they cram too many people on those.


Yeah, but if you don't meet your pillage quota, the jarl won't let you back on the longship.

katghoti: I am getting sick and tired of hearing about these cruise pukes/shiat fests.  Hey you know you take the chance crammed into an enclosed area with people who can't miss their boat no matter what.

It's like swimming in a public pool with parents that don't diaper their kids.

/shiat


People ask me "if you like the ocean so much, why not just take a cruise?"

Because a) I source and prepare the food, b) I don't buy from the lowest supplier of "food", c) make sure I wash my hands and head (nautical) and d) don't cram my boat with 2,000 gluttonous fatasses looking to eat six meals a day inbetween bar shots.

That, and I hate people.

How is it the Navy can manage without everybody taking a ride on the poop deck?  Is it because their poop chutes are full of seamen?
