The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that at least 95 passengers and 5 crew members have been sickened with a gastrointestinal illness (GI) while aboard the Celebrity Infinity.
The Infinity is on a two week cruise that started on March 29th and will end on April 13th in San Diego, CA.
We have received emails from sick passengers on the ship.
The CDC hasn’t figured out whether the outbreak is due to norovirus yet.
The CDC will send two employees (an environmental health officer and epidemiologist) to the cruise ship when it reaches San Diego April 13th.
April 13 2015 Update: A passenger contacted me today saying that there was an outbreak the cruise before which sailed from South America and returned to Ft. Lauderdale at the end of March. She said that her husband became ill with noro-like symptoms and the ship had been fumigated during the cruise.
