Queen Mary2 and Emerald Princess hit by suspected Norovirus
Passengers on two luxury cruise ships, including the prestigious Queen Mary 2, have come down with what is suspected to be a Norovirus bug.

Cunard, which owns the Queen Mary 2, said there are 19 passengers with "active symptoms" as of Friday. The Centers for Disease Control web site states 194 passengers and 11 crew reported being ill during the voyage. The web site lists the causing agent of the illness as "unknown."

In a statement to ABC News, the cruise line said, "There has been an incidence of a mild gastrointestinal illness among the passengers on Queen Mary 2. This illness is suspected to be Norovirus, which is highly contagious and typically transmitted from person to person."

Cunard's Queen Mary 2 is on a 12-day, round-trip sailing from New York to the Caribbean that departed Dec 22. According to the line's website, the ship is docked in St. Lucia today.

Norovirus aka Norwalk virus fucking blows.

Holy shit, it's the puke and shit at the same time kinda stomach bug that feels like a white hot ball of magma burning constantly in your upper stomach.

Had a "norwalk pasta salad" once a couple years back at a potluck. Holy fuck. Holy. Fuck.

 Quoting: Indysmindy


It's a fairly common stomach bug. Just a really bad one. One person not washing thier hands and touching handles at the buffet will do it.
