Makes one wonder about the calibre of Italian Captains and Princess has many.   Sad

"Livorno port official Gregorio De Falco shot to fame for his orders to Francesco Schettino after the captain abandoned the Costa Concordia, which sank off Italy in 2012 in a disaster that killed 32 people."

"Schettino, dubbed "Captain Coward" by the media for abandoning ship, spent most of the evacuation on a rock as terrified passengers threw themselves off the tilting liner at night after it hit an outcrop off the island of Giglio.

A telephone call transcript later emerged of De Falco demanding the captain return to ship.

When Schettino resists, De Falco warns: "You may have managed to save yourself but there, it will really go badly... I will create a lot of trouble for you. Get on board, for fuck's sake!"

"But do you realise that it is dark and we can't see anything?" Schettino asks, leaving an incredulous De Falco to wonder: "What do you want to do, Schettino? Go home? It is dark so you want to go home?"

The conversation was seen in Italy as an allegory of the country's "two souls"; on one side the "hair-creamed godfather used to breaking the rules", on the other the military hero with rigorous ethics."

All I can say is we never get Noro but seem to always pick up cold viruses in the winter.

They'll be sufficient germs floating around in the air so touching surfaces might be the least of you're worries. 

..and viruses. I don't know if you have been reading Dilbert lately, but the article in 2015 about the Vomiting robot study and Noro is particularly apropos to the current Dilbert arc..

No you are wrong, we do require some.   Cheesy

We actually start 'cruise training' about two weeks prior in that constantly washing of hands, using germicides, keeping track of where we put our hands and what we do afterwards, etc. It almost needs to be an obsession.

My biggest pet peeve on a ship, or any other public restroom, is the inability to wash hands prior to touching anything! Love the handicapped stalls with the sink!

Besides all of the ways to keep gastro illness at bay we believe having a balcony is another way to keep gastro germs at bay.  We always enter our cabin, wash our hands, open the balcony door.  Depending on the time of day or night we allowed the sunshine & fresh air in the cabin.  We even had the balcony door open part way during the night.  Hearing the waves slap at the ship was very soothing.  Whenever we were in our cabin, the balcony door was open all the way or part way.  We believed that was a fact for keeping us away from the gastro virus...  Just a helpful suggestion to cabin cruisers.   Grin

You obviously don't require AC.
