BALTIMORE, Md. – A Royal Caribbean cruise ship returned to port one day early after hundreds of passengers became sick.
A company spokeswoman says about 10 percent of the nearly 2,000 passengers came down with a gastrointestinal illness.
One passenger said Royal Caribbean didn’t provide much information about what was going on.
“They weren’t being honest about us, about the whole situation. We heard that there were three people sick,” said Nick Canning, a passenger on the ship.
Royal Caribbean says one passenger was hospitalized after the ship reached port in Baltimore.
It is not clear if that patient’s condition was related to the other illnesses.
