Everything You Should Know about Food Poisoning on Cruise Ships

You embark on a cruise with high hopes of an adventure and time to unwind and reconnect with loved ones. Not to mention, the investment likely wasn’t cheap.

Nothing puts a damper on the excitement and romance quite like a bout of stomach sickness. Unfortunately, food poisoning and stomach viruses are common culprits for just that on some cruises.

The United Kingdom, for instance, recently reported 24 cases of Salmonella linked to travel on cruise ships travelling to the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East. Similarly, other cruise lines report E. Coli outbreaks and stomach viruses both sickening passengers.

So, how do you avoid one of these unlucky strikes?

Know your foodborne illness on cruise ships, and most importantly, how to

Staying Healthy: A Cruise Passengers Biggest Worry – How to Do It

A new poll that surveyed about 1,440 U.S. cruises found that cruise passengers are most concerned about illnesses and injuries just before or during the trip.

Falling ill or getting injured right before or during a cruise was the greatest worry for 42.2% of the respondents. The two other major concerns were bad weather (37.3%) and missing the departure of a cruise (20.5%).

What’s Next for the Cruise Worker Found Alive after 22 Hours at Sea?

A cruise ship worker from the Norwegian Getaway cruise ship recently fell overboard in the Gulf of Mexico. US Coast Guard ships attempted to locate the man for many hours, but they eventually called off the search after covering over 1,600 square miles without success.

Twenty-two hours later, however, a cabin steward from a Carnival cruise ship spotted the stranded man in the water waving for help. Miraculously, he was rescued and is in stable condition. He had no survival devices at the time of his rescue, and he is presumed to have treaded water the entire time he was stranded.

Although the victim was rescued due to an extremely lucky coincidence, drownings and other injures are not uncommon on

Brawls

In February 2018, several brawls developed aboard the Carnival Legend when it was sailing off the coast of Australia. Reports indicate that a 23-member family group instigated many of the brawls, which the crew did not sufficiently control. A video even suggested that crew members kicked a passenger while on the ground.

Work on a Cruise? The Many Different Ways You Can Be Injured

We tend to see two different images of cruise ships and cruise vacations.

One of these is the luxury and fun they can provide. Couples canoodling by the railing of a ship. Families going on adventures together.

The other image is one of vacations gone wrong. Shipwrecks. Stolen belongings. The infamous “poop cruise.”

There’s a third image most people never consider though: workplace.

Cruise ships employ hundreds of people, and just like passengers, they can get injured, too.

In one three-year study of 630 cruise ship workers, these findings were reported:

    361 total injuries were reported. Men experienced 77 percent of those injuries, and women experienced 23 percent. Thirty percent of those injuries resulted in loss of work for more
