FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --
Nearly 65 passengers and crew members on a cruise ship suffered from a gastrointestinal illness over the last week, federal officials said Monday.

Fifty-three passengers and 11 crew members on Holland America Line Inc.'s Volendam came down with probable cases of norovirus, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spokesman Tom Skinner said. The cruise line obtained specimens from some of them to verify whether they had the common illness, he said.

I went on our "company Cruise" last year in February and everyone was all worked up about this same damn thing! It appears as though the cleanliness of the cruise ships plumetts in the last part of the year.

This ailment has been purely proven to be a matter of dirty surfaces and lack of handwashing.

I am VERY GLAD we are going to Aruba this year instead of on another cruise!


PEACE...
