"In a new finder.com.au study, 37 per cent of Australians said their biggest fear about going on a cruise was getting a stomach bug.

That was a bigger fear than storms, falling overboard, the ship leaving without them, the ship sinking or hitting an iceberg, or even lost or stolen luggage.

Norovirus was an even bigger concern than regular old seasickness.

And the dread was so strong, two in five Australians said they wouldn’t go on a cruise holiday at all because they were so afraid of getting sick."
