Still talking about the wealth of information available in the Advice section of Prow's Edge Cruise Magazine, there is a wealth of articles dealing with the subject of good health on a cruise. This is not to say that we want to dwell on all the things that could go wrong - but with a lot in the press about the Norwalk Virus on cruise ships recently, it is wise to be informed and prepared. There are many articles in the advice section of Prow's Edge than cover this and other not so savory topics.
The idea is not to depress you but to make sure you are prepared. Then you can forget all about it, knowing that should anything happen, you will be ready to deal with it.
