A luxury liner launched by the Duchess of Cornwall has been hit by a potentially fatal stomach bug, which has struck down nearly 80 passengers.

'Curse of Camilla' cruise ship struck by winter vomiting bug | the Daily Mail

From the article - "dubbed the Canary Islands trip the "cruise from hell" after complaining about poor room service, blocked toilets, a lack of Christmas decorations, cold food and extra charges for tea and coffee".

"The highly infectious Norovirus can kill and is frequently spread by food handlers who fail to wash properly". - and this is Camilla's fault how?

Simply umbelievable! And when you take a look at some of the article's comments...
I'm pretty sure that some pseudo journalists from this s... of Daily Mail just waited an event like this aboard the ship to hurt again a little bit more the Duchess.
Their articles are often ridiculous, but this one is ridiculous AND particulary rude imo.

To built a connection between Camilla, who launches the ship, and the virus the travellers are infected now is too stupid, too ridiculous, too impudent, to give a serious comment!
But didn´t we wait of this kind of rubbish after the champagne bottle didn´t break?
(Maybe the ships have a problem with hygiene?)

I believe it's what's known as 'light jesting', and it's accessible to all...

I do feel sorry for those who are hoping for the trip of a lifetime only to harbour a stomach ailment or even worse. Not nice.

Hello normalil, welcome!

Sickness strikes Camilla's cruise ship - Telegraph

The illness that has taken hold of the £300 million Queen Victoria, follows a run of bad luck cast at the luxury cruise liner's naming

The bad luck has nothing to do with Camilla, but much to do with bad hygiene, untrained staff and poor management! The same for the QE2 who as we know had no problems with champagne bottles breaking or not!

Gisela, Camilla did not launch the ship (that happened when the ship left its dock and went into the sea - in South Africa? Or where was she bulid?) she simply named it.

And that's a difference, an important one, IIRC. "Curses" only appear at the launch of a ship not on a naming ceremony...

I can't see how a cruise ship can possibly be a breeding ground for germs as a result of staff hygiene neglect when cruise ships are usually staffed entirely gay men and I don't know one gay man who wouldn't wash his hands before going into the kitchen.

Totally exact it was Maureen Ryan, who worked aboard all the 4 previous "Queens" ships, who launched the ship in the shipyard in Italy.
But sadly the D... Mail doesnt care about such details....

It is interesting how people, espeically journalists at the Daily Mail and such publications, fail to completely ignore Science and Medicine. Viruses are spread by germs and people breathing all over each other and not washing their hands. Especially on ships where everyone is in such close quarters--one non-Lysoled doorknob or remote control and everyone gets sick. So, unless Camilla was there deliberately rubbing her germ infested hands on doorknobs throughout the Victoria, I fail to see the connection. Really, this is
"Curse of Camilla" is just completely inappropriate to suggest and it thoroughly annoyes me!

Well, she shot JFK and invaded Poland - why wouldn't she spread a virus on a cruise liner?

It most likely refers to the old superstition that if the champgne bottle does not break the ship is cursed. Plenty of articles available around the time the ship was launched with the uncooperative champagne bottle. No need to take everything so seriously.

Not sure about assasination of JFK but certainly she's never been to Poland and I don't mind her invading my homeland - what a photo op for me !

This is a discussion board and therein lies its value.

However, I really don't understand why we would give any air at all to these newspaper reports which are, so palpably, arrant nonsense.

Much of this sort of rubbish is written to glean a reaction. We shouldn't oblige, in my opinion.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, DUCHESS!
