Food poisoning incident delays Royal Caribbean's ship Allure of the Seas

A food poisoning incident aboard RCI-Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas has affected passengers and caused a delay in the ship's itinerary.

Passengers on the 4-night cruise reported symptoms of illness on social media, with multiple accounts attributing the outbreak to undercooked pork tacos served in the Main Dining Room on Tuesday, May 21. This issue prompted the ship to implement stringent measures to prevent further spread.

Allure of the Seas, one of the world's largest cruise vessels, was on a voyage to the Bahamas' Nassau and CocoCay when the incident occurred.

Despite initial concerns, Bahamian authorities eventually allowed Allure OTS to dock at CocoCay after a delay. To compensate for the ~90-minute setback, Royal Caribbean extended the ship's stay by an additional hour.

Further investigation is ongoing to determine the precise source of the foodborne illness.
