California Cruise: More Than 100 Sick

April 10, 2014

More than 100 passengers have contracted the contagious norovirus on a ship touring the California coast, however the cruise line said Thursday it doesn’t plan to end the voyage early.

Some 104 passengers and 25 crew members on the Crown Princess had been infected by the cruise’s fifth day, but fewer than 15 were still complaining of the gastrointestinal symptoms that come with the virus, Princess Cruises spokeswoman Karen Candy said.

The Crown Princess is on a seven-day cruise from Los Angeles that included stops in San Francisco and Santa Barbara. The ship was in San Diego on Thursday and is scheduled to return to LA on Saturday.
