The only way you would be denied boarding is if you have vomiting or other end issues. You will have to fill out a medical form that asks if you have had vomiting or other issues in the last 72 hours. if you have not then you are good to go (except for flu).

Not much you can do for a cold except take stuff to relieve symptoms. but, if you think you have the flu DO NOT CRUISE as you can infect a whole lot of people and if you are showing signs of FLU at the terminal I doubt they will let you board.

Start drinking lots of water and OJ. Rest. Do they still make Zicam or Theraflu?

My advice...this atleast works for me.

Hydrate, make sure I am taking my vitamins, eat fruits, and get more sleep.

I find that taking 3000 mg of Vitamin C when I first start getting symptoms can sometimes knock it out for me. Also, Cold Eze zinc lozenges.

And, as the others said, LOTS of fluids and sleep.

I have a theory that basically bake myself with sweat shirts, ugly hats, 2 pairs of socks, a blanket (or 2), and then chug juice and decaf tea. It works.

Feel better.

I just had 24 hour virus wipe out my whole house. All 5 of us in 5 days. One after another. I would have cried if this was 2 weeks from now.

take a deep breath!

I am both a nurse and a Disney freak. Here is what I would do: sleep, sleep, sleep. Drink plenty of both clear and Vitamin C-rich fluids like fresh orange and pineapple juice. Eat soup. Warm baths. Wash hands frequently. Sleep and rest are the most important thing!

I'm sure they are aware of that. I think they just want encouragement and reassurance.
