Dream Vacations -- Cruising with Diarrhea

This web site contains over 24,000 pages of gastrointestinal illness information obtained from the CDC Vessel Sanitation Program. Covering a six-year period, these pages document all 'reported' cases of gastrointestinal illness for cruise ship voyages that disembark in any U.S. port.

Before selecting your next cruise ship, be sure to check:

While onboard, a passenger or crew member must experience severe diarrhea* accompanied with episodes of vomiting and a headache to be considered a 'case' of gastrointestinal illness, . For an outbreak to become public, at least 3% of the passengers OR crew must be ill with all three symptoms. *Severe diarrhea is considered three or more loose stools in a 24 hour period.

Follow these links to identify cruise line secrets:

The table below lists cruise ship outbreaks for 2006 in alphabetical order. What the cruise ship industry and the CDC Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP) doesn't want you to know is that many cruise ships have higher than normal incidence rates of the highly contagious Norovirus before and after reported outbreaks.
