Cunard, the cruise ship line says only 4% of the more than  1900 passengers were sickened.

This most recent outbreak follows two others that occurred during the month of March. Last Friday, it was reported that 121 passengers and crew were taken ill on Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas.

 A third outbreak in March, on Princess Cruises’ Ruby Princess, affected over six percent of passengers and crew — or 276 out of a total ship population of 4,300 — on a 7-night Caribbean cruise.

    I would recommend using Germstar Noro solution, whenever going on a cruise. A lot of cruises have it in touchless dispensers, but you can get it from the company or on Amazon (cheaper shipping that way).
