Cruise Ship environments offer their own unique set of challenges when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting all areas of the vessels. Enhanced and improved procedures for maintaining a clean, disease-free hospitality setting is crucial for repeat business on your ship.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness on cruise ships are caused by Norovirus, a common “stomach bug”. Norovirus is highly contagious with a short incubation period, causes diarrhea and vomiting, and typically lasts from one to three days. Norovirus is usually brought onto cruise ships by passengers at embarkation.
