Cruise Ship Illness

The Royal Caribbean Mariner on the Seas is back out on the water tonight for a new cruise. It departed just hours after a trip that was marred by the spread of a stomach virus.

The ship, carrying more than 3,000 passengers, arrived at Port Canaveral early Sunday morning after a week in ports like the Bahamas, Virgin Islands and St. Maarten.

The Brevard County Health Department says more than 200 passengers, and between six to 10 employees on Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas had the Norwalk Virus.
