  1. No misunderstanding. I was told this by two different infectious disease doctors as well as a GP.
  2. Both my mother and I had the flu shot in October and both of us got the flu about a month ago - tested out as strain A. Several infectious disease doctors told both of us that this year’s flu shot was only about 45% effective. My mom only had a little fever but a terrible cough and overall aches. I also had the terrible cough (still have traces of it) but had fever of 101-102 for 4 days. The doctors told us that having the shot does not keep you from getting the flu but it can help lessen the effects of it. Personally, I would hate to think of how much worse it could have been, because what we had knocked us out of commission for weeks. My mom had some other health issues going on so she is still recovering over a month later. I certainly hope it’s just a cold making the rounds on the ship because the flu was miserable.
  3. Does the soda have to be in a can? I would prefer to bring it in a six pack of those 16 oz plastic screw top bottles, but I don’t want to break any rules.
  4. My advice is to take a winter jacket and gloves. Several years ago I went the week before Memorial Day, and I ended up having to buy a winter jacket when it started snowing. The only animals we saw were bald eagles. No whales and no bears. We were told it was too early in the season to see them. While I could have dealt with the weather, I was pretty bummed about the lack of animal sightings which is one thing I was looking forward to. Having said that, I also realize that wildlife sightings wouldn’t have been guaranteed even if I cruised later in the season! Sent from my iPad using Forums
  5. Are there any better options out of Miami? If so, perhaps your airline would let you switch to flying out of there since their change isn't giving you good options out of FLL. Sent from my iPad using Forums
  6. Hope they quickly find out what is going on and that your son will be on the road to recovery soon. If this had to happen, thank goodness it started before you got on the plane or on the ship. Sent from my iPad using Forums
