A newspaper in the U.K. reports that dozens of passengers were struck down by a "vomiting bug" on board a cruise ship which docked in Southampton yesterday.
The Celebrity Eclipse returned from a two week Mediterranean cruise which departed on May 11th.
77 passengers and five crew members – 1.8 per cent of those on board the ship – were "laid low" by an illness thought to be the winter vomiting bug norovirus.
A spokesman for Celebrity Cruises said it would undergo an “extensive and thorough” clean now that the vessel had returned to Southampton.
