Destination: Western Caribbean
Thats when it happened we returned to the ship to find it was in a noro-virus meltdown. Freedom of the seas turned into captivity of the seas .Slowly we spiraled the drain first it was hand wipes and some hand sanitizer by the next day entrance to any store,bar anywhere was tightened to allow entrance and exit through one spot so they could make sure you sanitized your hands, armies of people spraying and whipping .they went as far as to have the dancers from the shows serving food in windjammer.And they where not happy ,making comment to customers like "you want two pieces of chicken wow".you had to almost beg for what you wanted.No garnish on drinks ,you couldn't get your coffee from cafe promenade on your own .Seats where empty in mdr ,shows had plenty of seats.People where hiding in rooms, the ship smelled of illness. i couldn't wait for this cruise to end .Due to spray used all chrome and brass was spotty and tarnished looking .The gleam was off the diamond, the mood of many passengers was fear many people feared to report there illness due to quarantine of 48 hours for the affected and 24 hrs for family.the smell of methane was everywhere .I was so depressed i wanted off and the next stop was Grand Cayman ,but it was not to be noro visited me.Then Mexico still not feeling great we shopped a little but with no excitement fearing to get to far from the ship .one more sea day left til we get off, did express departure having a long drive ahead of use .we didn't get cleared by port for a long time much longer than before finally we where off to the safety of our car. I wonder where our next cruise will be but i know who will not bring me there .maybe when the emotional response is over i will realize they couldn't control the outcome but not yet and not before our next cruise .Maybe another cruise line will fit me better i was happy with rccl Less
