Cruise Ship Returns To Port With Sick Passengers

( 4UMF NEWS ) Cruise Ship Returns To Port With Sick Passengers:

The Ruby Princess’ weeklong Caribbean cruise came to an end Sunday morning at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale — and according to cruiseline officials several passengers became ill onboard during the cruise.

“We did see a small number of passengers with illnesses,” said Karen Candy, a spokesperson for Princess Cruises

On Sunday, she did not have the exact number of passengers taken ill.

That was a similar scenario from a week ago when the Ruby Princess docked with 129 sick passengers. The ship had sailed out with 3,147 passengers.

So far this year Princess Cruises has reported three outbreaks of norovirus on their ships – the most of any major cruise line involved in the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vessel Sanitation Program.

It still must be determined if the latest illness was caused by the norovirus.

Since norovirus is spread through touching contaminated surfaces or eating affected food and water, the ship’s crew had followed strict guidelines. “We have been operating at higher levels of sanitation,” Candy said.

Many of the cleanliness rules were outlined in an e-mail sent to passengers before the ship left port, said passenger Frank Babich. The email said passengers could expect delays because of the crews efforts to keep the ship clean.

Crews were constantly wiping down surfaces on the ship during the cruise and encouraged passengers not to use public restrooms to help stop the spread of germs, according to passengers.
