MIAMI -- More than 150 passengers on Royal Caribbean s Oasis of the Seas have been hit with an outbreak of Norovirus as it sailed from Florida to Jamaica.
Passengers took to social media on Wednesday, tweeting they were forced to stay onboard the cruise ship after docking in Falmouth, Jamaica, on Wednesday for what was supposed to be a day of excursions.
The ship left Port Canaveral on Florida s Atlantic Coast on Sunday. It is on a seven-night cruise through the Caribbean with a stop planned in Cozumel, Mexico, before returning.
