Cruise illnesses down?

According to a report in by the CDC, the number of cruise illnesses declined nearly 30% since 1990. Better cleanliness, awareness and quick reactions by the cruise companies all contributed to the decline.

But this doesn't mean the issue is going away. As the ships get bigger, containment becomes an issue as well. One outbreak on one mega ship has the potential to impact thousands instead of hundreds.

As with all vacations, make smart eating and cleaning decisions and you will avoid many of the problems. And if you do come down with something on board, go to the medical clinic. It is important that the ship 's staff knows of all the issues on board.
