hello everyone, I just wanted to share our experience with sickness at sea. We sailed on the disney magic Dec. 28- Jan. 4. seas were rough for a few days. A family member became sick with vomiting we thought she was seasick. She continued to get worse and became dehydrated. She was seen by the ships' doctor because she couldn't catch her breath. They couldn't control her breathing so she was admitted to the St. Thomas hospital. Currently she is unconcious (drug induced) and on a ventilator, and they can find no reason for her rapid breathing. Her father had to stay behind with her. He told us that he was staying in a hotel with no running water and sleeping on a straw mat and paying $100.00 per day in cash. Her son went to the medical center while onboard complaining of an upset stomach. He was quararented for one day. Actually, he had too much to drink the night before, but they made him stay in his room. On our last night our room steward was quaranted for illness. We observed three people throwing up and heard of many complaints of stomach aches. Other than that we tried to have a good vacation, the disney staff was very helpful and kept us in contact with the hospital so we could have daily updates.
