Know how you feel. Mentioned earlier that I got norovirus on a cruise. Miserable to say the least.
And when you're sick, you still can't get off that ship. We were so sick and felt like prisoners in that small room.
There is no way to make a ship medically clean. All those passengers are touching surfaces everywhere you go, including the dining rooms. One passenger with bacterial germs or a virus can infect the whole ship fast - then you are sick and can't call your doctor, can't go to your doctor, can't use your own over the counter measures to help yourself, you are just stuck.
Why that speaker didn't come on and say there was medicine available, I don't know. The freaking speaker came on at 7 am every day telling of various activities. If I had a grenade I would have set it on top of the speaker with the pin out and walked out of the room until the speaker was silenced, then gone back to bed to sleep - that's how much I hated that speaker.
You poor thing. It’s bad enough when you’re at home,much less on a ship.
