Queen Mary 2 Ship Unwanted Passanger: NOROVIRUS
The Queen Mary 2, which its value is almost 1 billion dollars, is considered to be one of the most luxurious ships of the world, and has on-board, among other things, a spa, planetarium, library, theater, and fifteen restaurants and bars. Certain dining areas are reserved for passengers who hold the most expensive tickets. A regular ticket costs around $5,000 USD per person. Well, a very expensive ticket to acquire Norovirus!
