Hi I am from the UK. This sounds like good advice. What is lysol please ( perhaps an antibacterial agent? ) and where can I get some when we arrive in Disney. We have a rental car so can get to walmart etc? Thanks.

Yes, it's an anti-bacterial spray. WalMart should have it with the cleaning supplies.

Of course this is the first cruise we haven't purchased trip insurance.

Anyone else feeling nervous?
If you're nervous call your travel agent

If you're nervous, look into Buying Travel Guard insurance. Very affordable and great coverage. Buy online or through a travel agent

Travel Insurance is a very good idea.




Here is a cut and paste from the CDC on the flu shot side effects.


Different side effects can be associated with the flu shot and LAIV.
The flu shot: The viruses in the flu shot are killed (inactivated), so you cannot get the flu from a flu shot. Some minor side effects that could occur are:
•Soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given
•Fever (low grade)
•Aches

If these problems occur, they begin soon after the shot and usually last 1 to 2 days. Almost all people who receive influenza vaccine have no serious problems from it. However, on rare occasions, flu vaccination can cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions

Read this (it's actually a FACT - something that many "news" organizations seem to stretch from time to time): http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/vis...ds/vis-flu.pdf


Doesn't matter. Enough people had severe enough illness after getting the shot to keep this 'myth' going. I do not trust the government enough to allow them to inject me with a virus - even a dead virus. Every vaccine is different and the effects (side effects) from person to person varies.

I am right there with ya. When has the government ever been truthful about anything? But that is another thread

Sounds like a crap shoot.....but I guess allergic or serious problems is possible with any drug.


Telling someone else that they should or should not get a shot is like telling someone to use birth control or take vitamins or loose weight or quit smoking. We are all adults and make our own decisions in life.

I will never get a flu shot. The reasons why are numerous. I also don't take cough syrup, antihistamines, decongestants...or many other drugs that fight the body's immune system.

Think about this. The optimal temp for viruses to multiply is 98.6. Even a degree or two higher and it inhibits their ability to multiply. So we get a fever and what isthmus first thing many of us do? Take aspirin to reduce the fever. Makes no sense.

Very obnoxious, rude and presumptive. I think you men I 'couldn't care less' not that I could care less. Please try to get your baseless accusations right.

I know this will fall on deaf ears but I believe God designed our bodies and set up the laws of nature for a reason. I trust my immune system the way God designed it. If you think your mission in life is to improve on God's providence then put you faith in government. If you want to risk your children's lives to protect the herd, you go right head. And when a bad batch of vaccination comes thru (like the bad batch of steroids a few months ago that doctors injected in people killing them and giving others meningitis) and you or you child dies, you can claim the risk they took was worth it to protect those with compromised immune systems.

Disney should make a rule: Those who choose not to get the flu shot should wear a mask to protect fellow passengers.

Really!?!?!
The flu shot is NOT 100% effective. So I guess everyone should wear a mask!?!?

As well, many people can get the common side effects of fever, chills and headache after recieving the flu shot. They may concieve this as 'being sick' but infact, common side effects.
It is a large myth... You do NOT get sick from the ship. The research that was done during H1N1 was in relation to your immune system being busy fighting the dead flu vaccine that was placed in your body.

This is why many people feel blah up to the first week after the flu shot, you immune system is working with all of the dead flu strains within the shot/under skin injection.
