Anyone that sailed on the Breeze 12/1-12/14 that is not feeling well

Recommended Posts

We sailed on the Breeze for B2B sailings 12/1-12/14. As usual, I got the nasty "cruise Crud" as I do anytime I sail more that 10 days. After day 9, started feeling wiped out, coughing and congested. Dayquil & Mucinex is my old stand by relief. Got home, continued to feel terrible, went doctor's office when I got a sore throat. Turns out I got a case of Strep Throat. Well aware you catch all kinds of stuff on cruise ships, I just thought I would warn anyone that thinks they just have cruise crud that is taking a while to clear.

Or at the airport, on the shuttle, in the taxi, in the bathroom or at The Dollar Store where my sister finished her shift before  seeing the doc.

I think Jimbo was stricken sickly on that ship to ?  I was on the week before with no problems reported that I know of.  I don't do longer than a nine day ,as the crud becomes famous after that.

I don't do longer than a 7-day because my pocket book becomes terminally ill after that!

We were on the Breeze for a 14-day Journeys cruise from 11/3/18-11/17/18 and didnt catch anything. I believe it just depends on your immune system at the time. The fresh salt air always helps to clear my head and sinuses. 😁

Just about every cruise that I go on has a facebook group...and everyone of them gets a bunch of people saying they got sick from the cruise when they get home.  The posts are ridiculous.

 

They try to get  a bunch of people together to call Carnival and get some kind of refund or credit by blaming them for getting sick.

 

Truthfully, you can get sick at any point in your life...You are always around germs.  Your flight, your hotel, your taxi, a gas pump, your phone...etc.. literally every part of your trip also carries tons of germs.

 

Personally, we have been on 10 cruises (going on the horizon in march for our 11th), none of us ever get sick.   And we are not germaphobes either.

 

I see all these people wiping anti bacterial stuff on them, using napkins to open bathroom doors, carrying Lysol wipes...they are the ones who get sick because you are depriving your body from building up immunity.   Your body needs to be exposed to germs to learn how to fight them.   I am 51 and can say I cant even remember the last time I had a cold or the flu...probably at least 10 years ago.

I've only been on 8 cruises, the longest were the 8 day cruises.  I have never gotten sick. However, I've noticed on my last 3 or 4 cruises, my feet swell! 😯
