  1. We have been advised by the Captain that that ship is now due into Southampton at 0200hrs Monday morning. Southampton VTS still showing 04.30hrs.
  2. The captain has made announcement regarding NoroVirus and I appreciate his honesty on this matter, openness in these matters is always welcomed - thank you. ".....we have managed to keep the number of cases to around 20 day..." and ".... he thinks this is quite an achievement ...." so what was it before and at its peak? I dont know how good achievement this is. Done 2 world cruises etc and never known anything like it, but the passengers on those ships where of different demographics (statistical data relating to the population and particular groups within it).
  3. On a positive note I would like to thank the crews who have been working so hard to care for us during this situation. They always do things very willingly, with a smile on their face (underneath their maks), at antime night and day and with no complaints. I do believe the ship has gone the extra mile in terms of trying to get the situation under control. Sanitizers on every table in the bars, by lift doors (these quite clearly state kills NoroVirus). Issuing personal bottles sanitizing gels. Also the staff who have on guard duty, all day, every
  4. I never intended saying there were 100 at any time - apologies for misleading you.
  5. yes, I agree, what about over a period of time? How can they do an accurate NoroVirus report when they are NOT testing all passengers suspected of being infected with NoroVirus? I think it would easier if the captain just gave us all the figures, this would end all the speculation.
  6. There are more than 44 passengers affected more like 100 plus. Maybe the need to report infection levels caused the ship not to be allowed into Gibraltar https://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-7986387/Saga-cruise-ship-Southampton-days-turned-away-Gibraltar-norovirus.html
  7. Last night a bottle of champagne and a large hard backed book about the SoD was delivered to our cabin with note attached. saga champagne.pdf
  8. There is a lot more than 15 - you dont employ 2 extra nurses for 15 patients with a 48hr bug. I will write more at Southampton. The hand cleaners provided on the ship, quite clearly state 'kills Norovirus'. They are not testing every patient for Norovirus. My wife has not been been tested. I have been tested because I requested it. The nurse rang me back and said the test was negative !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Scopio I think you are a different SoD to me. The nurses are working flat out and the ship has recruited 2 extra nurses to go back with the ship to Southampton. How do I know - they told me when treated my wife and I in our cabin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Yes, There is still illness on the ship. I am in a cabin with one of the sufferers now. The nurses are working flat out. Two extra nurses have been brought onboard.
  11. Thank you for your kind words. The strange thing is that the medics are not taking 'samples' for testing!!! Seems strange
  12. Just had the captains announcement He said there are no new cases today !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My wife was struck down with this at 3 mins past 9 last night, and we have had to call the nurses several times during the night. I also have been very ill with the virus and we are struggling to manage. The cabin staff are doing a wonderful job in difficult circumstances and always a smile on faces. its unbelievable that the ship still has not got this under control - its totally wreaked our holiday We have had to have our bathroom sanitiz
  13. Just needed to call the medics again. To do this you dial 999, which I did, and I was put on hold with music playing !!!!!!!!!!! There are now 5 nurses onboard the ship. Never been with Saga before and wont be doing so again.
