Several passengers aboard an Azamara Quest Cruise from Royal Caribbean experienced a nightmare vacation. More than 20 people reported being sick with a gastro-intestinal virus.
Four passengers on the Azamara Quest cruise arrived in San Diego on Thursday with symptoms including vomiting and diarrhea. During the trip, 22 passengers and two crew members reported gastrointestinal diseases.
The Royal Caribbean cruise left Costa Rica for the city of San Diego on a two-week trip with eight stops. The last one in Cabo San Lucas.
Several passengers assured that the crew was disinfecting constantly and reminding everyone that they should wash their hands.
This morning they started cleaning the boat so that it could be ready for their next trip.
Representatives of Royal Caribbean have not yet confirmed what caused the outbreak but assured that the majority of patients were treated to the brim and have already recovered. Specimens were taken from passengers who presented symptoms that will be analyzed by the Center for Disease Control.
