277 People Sickened Aboard Cruise Ship

A Caribbean cruise ship is heading home early after a stomach virus outbreak sickened nearly 300 people on board. Guests aboard Royal Caribbean’s ‘Oasis of the Seas’ began falling ill shortly after the ship arrived in Jamaica earlier this week. The ship canceled plans to visit Cozumel, Mexico and headed back to Florida a day early.  Royal says all 9,000 guests on board will receive a full refund. Early reports identified the illness as norovirus, but a spokesman says they’re still waiting on lab test results. Do you have any fears about traveling on a cruise ship?  What’s your dream vacation spot?
