Norovirus on Pacific Northwest cruises & Asian cruise itineraries

At sea and on land, norovirus is becoming a larger problem in America. However cruisers in the Pacific Northwest seem to see the worst of it:

Public health officials say they are seeing more outbreaks of diarrhea and vomiting on ships calling on Seattle, Alaska and British Columbia than anywhere else in the country….the likelihood of contracting a diarrheal illness on an average seven-day cruise is still less than 1 percent, which may not seem like a big deal, unless you’re the one who’s sick.

Viruses tend to spread when many people gather close together but bringing sanitizers and washing hands often can reduce your chances of becoming ill on a cruise.

On the other side of the world, we have a good overview of cruises in Asia. Many of these cruises involve Japan, China, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. A few include Hong Kong, Myanmar, and UAE.
