>Good Morning Everyone,

Please be advised that as of 8:00pm tomorrow evening, February 28th, 2008 the ship will be at Sanitation Level 2.

This is a precautionary measure as we are docked in Puerto Vallarta 24 hours after the Holland America’s Ryndam which had a Norwalk like outbreak recently.

On behalf of Captain Frisky,

Thank you.

    >ok now you need to explain some more. I get wild visions of what “sanitation level 2” might be and what a Norwalk like outbreak is etc… Please free me of my imaginative ideas that pop-up now :p…

    >Goofball, I have no idea. Sanitation level 2 is not so bad I think, you should see level 3! I haven’t noticed much so far! The Norwalk virus is a serious flu like virus that affects cruise ships and spreads through skin contact, or even if you touched something an infected person had touched earlier.It’s really contagious so they take it seriously! Also if a certain percent of people have symptoms of it, the ship cannot sail and they lose a bunch of money. Thats why if a crew member gets diarrhea, they will be quarantined for 3 days no matter if it is the flu or not! Its really hard to contain such a virus in close quarters so they take all precautions necessary – like hand sanitizers everywhere! And people serving you at the buffet instead of you serving yourself (that would be level 3 , though 🙂
