David Abel, from Northamptonshire, is on board the ship with his wife Sally.
He said they were without food for 18 hours after fears the kitchens were the source of the virus.
Mr Abel said:
“Nothing changed except for food.
“It now is a sandwich for every meal.
“We are no longer on a luxury cruise, that’s for sure.”
