Mr Gibson - Answered a Question by Seager (22 Mar 09 22:48)

I was on the millennium a couple of years ago, a young child was at the breakfast buffet with her mother, the mother put some bacon on her plate, the little girl with the running nose obviously did not want it, she grabbed it from her plate with her hand and put it back on the bacon tray. the mother obviously saw her do it, and said nothing, BUT I DID very loudly to both of them, but I would say it was like water of a ducks back, the 1/2 full tray was taken away, I was thanked by the restaurant manager for pointing it out, in just about every case of virus attack on ships it is the passengers fault, not the ship/crew.

Major outbreaks have been reported on Queen Victoria, Emerald Princess, Empress of the Seas, Star Princess, and Norwegian Pearl in December but I have seen nothing about Millennium being infected. It is, however a matter of concern this year and one can only impress on passengers the constant need to wash your hands with soap before eating anything and after using lavatorial facilities. ….Regards….Nei.

We were on the millennium last year and the ship was very clean. just make sure you wash your hands often not just after visiting the toilet. Also use the hand sanitiser before and after you eat and on leaving and boarding the ship.

It doesn't matter if there has been a recent outbreak [which there hasn't] as after every outbreak the ship is bleached and cleaned thoroughly, and then inspected by the American CDC before she is allowed to sail again. A post-Noro ship is probably the most clinically clean place to be. Noro has nothing to do with the ship - it is the filthy people on the ship who do not wash their hands properly after they have been to the bathroom. FYI: ships are forced by law to report outbreaks of Noro, hotels etc are not - so that is why you hear more about outbreaks on ships. I would still say a ship is better, cleaner environment than a hotel...

Why Cruise Lines Dont Reall...

By Collette Apak

Amongst my regular customers I have quite a few who travel solo. Some choose to do so as their ‘significant others’ have other things planned or can’t get time off work. Some have either split up from, or have lost their partner and have no choice but to travel on their own. Some go with friends, but want to have the privacy of their own cabin to sleep in.Cruise holidays are a perfect option for people who travel alone. You can have plenty of ‘me-time’, but you ...

My Visit to see the MS Emily Bronte

By Steve Fuller

Steve Fuller's blog

I was luck enough to be invited to see the new MS Emily Bronte. This was only a day trip but worth it all the same. An early start to the day travelling to Birmingham to be met by Riviera representatives and then a short flight to Dusseldorf followed by an hours transfer to where the ship was. I can see why River Cruises are very popular. Compared to an ocean Liner that are huge in size, River cruises give you a more intimate feel and are able to get into the heart of Cities. Some with excurs...
