    >>> " According to rumor, there were some cases of H1N1 on board the ship"
    ----- Was there for 2 weeks and it wasn't a rumor. 3 crew members got the flu while the ship was at sea.
    >>> "allowed to leave the ship at all."
    ----- Yes, the entire crew were kept on board a whole week until it sailed.
    Passengers were bused to their charter plane direct from the ship after been reviewed by the Aruban Health people.
    >>> "I doubt that another ship will be allowed in."
    ------ The ship sailed with new passengers after a week in Aruba.

    Imho, the Aruban govenment and health officials along with officials from the WHO did an excellent job.

    The entire situation was tightly regulated.
    They kept tourists and residents well informed so there were no rumors.

    ---- Ditto, all did well.
    While down there a WHO doctor on TV stated people my age(born in the 1950's and before) might have a built up resistance to this type as it was around back then.

    Interesting to note... Just watched a documentary recently, where they are researching people's DNA, for the possibility of resistance to pandemics going back to the days of the "Black Death"/plague. The Plague continued for many years, but successive generations saw fewer deaths. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Death
