Three outbreaks of illness affect hundreds on cruise ships


Three outbreaks of illness affecting more than 100 people each have been reported aboard two cruise liners — two of them in back-to-back cruises of the same ship — according to the nation’s leading health protection agency.

The double dose of ill-fated cruises struck the Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

During the ship’s April 5 to April 12 cruise, 105 of the nearly 3,000 passengers and crew were affected — primarily with vomiting and diarrhea, the disease agency passengers stuck in rooms

During the ship’s cruise the prior week, 117 passengers and crew members were struck, according to the CDC.
