Hundreds come down with stomach illness during Royal Caribbean cruise
During the five-night cruise, 332 cases of the illness were reported, Owen Torres, a spokesman for Royal Caribbean told CNN in a statement. He stressed that it was a small percentage 5.99% of the more than 5,000 passengers and crew on board the ship, Independence of the Seas.
“Those affected by the short-lived illness were treated by our ship’s doctors with over-the-counter medication,” Torres said, “and we hope all our guests feel better quickly.”
