19 people aboard a cruise ship reported sick
Mysterious flu-like illness has struck passengers aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines, which docked at San Pedro on Sunday.
The Los Angeles Fire Department says authorities were called early Sunday to evaluate patients after they fell ill on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship. They also added that the patients were evaluated and they declined to be taken to the hospital.
Norwegian Cruise Line issued the following statement:
“The safety, security and well-being of our guests and crew is our number one priority. As such, we operate at the very highest public health standards. During Norwegian Joy’s Mexican Riviera sailing, a few guests on board experienced a stomach related illness. To mitigate any impact of this rare occurrence, we implemented stringent sanitation procedures. As always, we will continue to monitor this situation.”
