Cruise Ship At Sea Again After Dropping Off Sick Passengers

Posted: Updated:

Scores of sick passengers were dropped off in San Diego Saturday after getting sick on a Holland American cruise ship.

The cruise ship was underway again Saturday night for the Mexican Riviera after teams spent the entire day disinfecting it.

More than 100 of the 2,600 passengers on the MS Oosterdam and several crew members contracted the norovirus, a stomach flu that made them sick with diarrhea, vomiting and other symptoms.

The crew declared a "code red" after the first night of the cruise, canceled group events and told passengers they should stay in their rooms.

The ship returned to San Diego on Saturday, where the sick passengers were taken off and the ship was sanitized, News 8 reported.
