It may also be that Carnival cruises are generally short. By the time someone notices noro symptoms they are probably already off the ship...

 

Good point. The times I was on a ship with noro were longer than a week, but I don't recall when it started. If memory serves, it would have been maybe halfway through a 10-14 day cruise. When we got it on QE2 15 years ago, it was at the end of a 12 day cruise. We hadn't heard anything about it onboard, so I think we were at the start of an outbreak. Transcanal, and we got off in LA. I later heard lots of passengers who stayed on to Hawaii got sick. 

 

I don't know that the CDC reporting trigger is, but it's possible that HAL admits there's a potential outbreak before that percent is reached. As I said in an earlier post, HAL seems to believe in "an abundance of caution."

Here is the reporting criteria:

Read the Celebrity thread on people licking their fingers then reaching for the tongs.

 

HAL does it right.
