Virus outbreak on ship
Island Princess Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Review SummaryOutstanding logistics. Nice port calls. Friendly staff.
However, a virus outbreak on the last few days of the cruise was poorly handled by the medical staff. I strongly suspect that these type of viruses come from the numerous foreign workers on the ship who prepare/serve food...and probably do to have high personal hygiene standards. We were told by ship's medical staff to buy over the counter medicine. An evaluation by medical was never accomplished...and should have been, given the known virus outbreak.
Post cruise, Princess never returned my calls which were intended to gather more information about the virus.
