Wednesday, 21 Jun, 2023 0

Over 100 cruise guests were taken ill on the Viking Neptune cruise ship, with the CDC flagging norovirus as the cause.

The CDC said 110 of the 838 guests aboard reported illness.

It said nine crew members were also affected.

It equated to 13% of the ship’s guests.

The ship arrived back in New York after completing the cruise.

Main symptoms were cramps, vomiting and diarrhea.

Viking implemented its ‘outbreak prevention and response plan.’

As Covid has become less of an issue and overall cruise passenger traffic grows, Norovirus outbreaks are on the rise again.

The CDC has cited 13 outbreaks on cruise ships this year.

Recently, a Celebrity Summit cruise ship reported over 100 passengers sickened by norovirus.
