Royal Carribean Cruise hit by stomach flu outbreak

A ROYAL Caribbean cruise was forced to return to port in Tampa, Florida last Saturday after 150 passengers and crew suffered a stomach illness.

The company said it suspected the illness on board the Radiance of the Seas, which was en route to Mexico, was stomach flu, which is highly contagious, especially in confined communal spaces.

Royal Caribbean said in a statement on its website: “We will conduct some enhanced sanitizing on board the ship and within the cruise terminal to help prevent any illness from affecting the next sailing.”

The ship is scheduled to leave on another cruise this Saturday.
