This Is How Much the British Royal Family Spent on Travel in 2017

  This Is How Much the British Royal Family Spent on Travel in 2017 Travel, for the British royal family, is no pedestrian task. Although the Queen never has to worry about carrying a passport, the ease stops there; from the requisite security phalanx to the private jets, an international trip for the House of Windsor is a considerable to-do. (Kate and William do always break this one royal family travel rule, however.) But exactly how much money does it cost to subsidize the royal family's business life abroad? (Here are 10 royal family traditions you should try this year.)The Express took a look at the numbers behind the family’s travel expenses and the tab is sizable.

Royal Caribbean passengers aboard The Grandeur of the Seas are feeling less than grand after a gastrointestinal outbreak that has sickened 47 passengers to date.

The liner departed Baltimore on Jan. 2 with roughly 2,900 guests and staffers onboard, with stops planned in Charleston, S.C., Orlando, Fla., and the Bahamas.

Royal Caribbean spokesman Owen Torres told Fox News the itinerary has been adjusted in the wake of the outbreak and will now return home on Jan. 12, instead of Jan. 10, as initially planned.

Bomb cyclone pummels NYC-bound cruise carrying 400 passengers

  Bomb cyclone pummels NYC-bound cruise carrying 400 passengers If you think a coastal cruise was the place to be when last week’s “bomb cyclone” hit the East Coast, think again. A Norwegian Cruise Line carrying 400 passengers on their way back to New York from the Bahamas ran smack into the storm at sea, and the experience was anything but a vacation.“I’m completely traumatized,” passenger Emma Franzese told CBS New York once the ship docked.“I’ll never go on any type of boat again in my life after this.”Distressed passengers on the 14-day cruise described 30-foot ocean swells that sent water into rooms and elevators when the storm hit Thursday.

Over 500 people have gotten sick on Royal Caribbean cruises since December. Passengers on a Royal Caribbean cruise have reported 47 cases of " gastrointestinal illness," according to a company spokesperson.

Gastrointestinal bugs seem to be fairly commonplace on cruise lines. Just last month, 47 Royal Caribbean passengers aboard The Grandeur of the Seas got sick on a cruise heading for the Bahamas.

“Those affected by the short-lived illness have been treated by our ship’s doctors with over-the-counter medication, and we hope all our guests feel better quickly,” Torres said via email. He added that the cause of the outbreak remains unknown at this time.

“We’re taking steps like intensive sanitary procedures to minimize the risk of any further issues. The ship will undergo special cleaning procedures before it departs Saturday for her next cruise,” he wrote. In addition, all passengers on board are encouraged to wash their hands often.

As evidenced by recent photos shared to Instagram, guests nevertheless appear to be enjoying their cruise.

This is Royal Caribbean’s third incident of a gastrointestinal illness outbreak at sea in two months.

All about travel parasites and their problems .
In my work as a travel and tropical medicine specialist, this is one of my busier times of year as large numbers of people return from March Break vacations to warm, sunny places.In the winter, I see a lot of people coming home from holidays in the Caribbean. In the summer, my colleagues and I see more people who have visited places like India, Africa, South America or Southeast Asia. It’s not uncommon for people to pick up a parasite while travelling in these parts of the world.When it comes to travel-related illness, the most common is travellers’ diarrhea. It is acquired mostly via contaminated food or water.
