AU: Gastro outbreak aboard cruise ship bound for Sydney hits 182 passengers
News.com.au: There’s something you can get aboard cruise ships that isn’t advertised in the brochures: a violent bout of gastro.
That’s what happened to passengers who docked at Sydney’s international cruise terminal in The Rocks on Wednesday morning. A total of 182 passengers out of the 3566 on board the luxury Royal Caribbean cruise ship Explorer of the Seas have been struck down by the stomach bug.
Explorer of the Seas is Australia’s biggest cruise ship. It docked at Sydney after travelling to New Zealand. It’s the third such outbreak aboard a cruise ship carrying Australian passengers in the past four months.
