Should You Go on a Cruise While the Swine Flu Runs Rampant?
If you are going on a cruise, you may want to rethink your plans. Cruises are a hotbed of viruses and bacteria that grow and reproduce due to the unique conditons of moisture and containment. Cruises might be most dangerous because of the confinement issues involved with being on a cruise ship. If you must take your trip, wash hands constantly and use alcohol based gels while on the ship. Be extra cautious touching handrails or other surfaces where the virus might live as well.
