Celebration Reports Significant Noro Outbreak
February 17, 2004
Carnival says that those who reported symptoms of the illness are being offered a choice of a full refund or future cruise credit (in the amount they paid). Both may be applied to a four- or five-night cruise through 2005.
In the meantime, the ship sailed, as scheduled, on Saturday, after a vigorous cleaning and sanitizing. Folks boarding on February 14's trip were offered the chance to cancel-without-penalty. Ship officers are staying in close touch with Centers for Disease Control officials and a repeated outbreak has not been spotted.
