Gastro Outbreak on Princess Cruise Ship

   March 4, 2017 ,   Accidents

Several passengers onboard an Australian cruise ship sailing to Barbados were confined to their staterooms after a virus outbreak.

A gastroenteritis bug prevented eleven travellers from disembarking Sea Princess after she docked at Port Bridgetown Barbados at 7:45 a.m. yesterday.

It's the first time in over 5 years that the ship, which carries 1 950 passengers and is currently on a 90-day world cruise, had docked in the waters of Barbados.

However, Chief Medical Officer Joy St John gave her assurance that local health authorities were on top of the situation.
