More than 80 people aboard a Royal Caribbean Cruises ship became ill during a four-day trip to the Bahamas last week, the fifth vessel to report an outbreak in recent weeks. According to a health official with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the illness is similar to the Norwalk-like virus that has affected over 1,000 passengers and crew on ships sailing the Caribbean since September. Royal Caribbean's Majesty of the Seas had carried 2,605 passengers. The CDC is conducting an investigation of the outbreak and will oversee the cleaning of the ship.
