Hundreds Sick On Caribbean Cruise Ship
(Undated) -- More than 300 passengers and crew members on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship are ill. The Centers for Disease Control says on its website that many are suffering from vomiting and diarrhea. The CDC says the sick are aboard the Explorer Of the Seas, which departed New Jersey last Tuesday. The cause of the sickness is unknown but an environmental safety officer and an epidemiologist would board the ship in St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands to investigate.
The ship was carrying over three-thousand passengers and a crew of over 11-hundred.
