Kidney Transplantee - Jacuzzi
Hi, me again - please advise why people on immuno-suppressive drugs (like my husband who has been a Kidney Transplantee for the last 15 years) are not permitted to use the Jacuzzi on a cruise liner. Is it because of the bacteria and viruses in the water - resulting in possible infection? Would they not clean the Jacuzzi often and use chemicals, especially on a 6* ship... Thank-you.
