BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WKMG) – Some passengers who disembarked Royal Carribean’s Oasis of the Seas cruise ship Saturday morning remembered their cruise as less than ideal.
“My daughter got sick. My son got sick,” said Ariana VanHaaster, who booked the the cruise as a vacation for her family of seven.
Her son, Ian, was one of the first to get sick in a norovirus outbreak that Royal Caribbean spokeswoman Kiki Perera said affected over 400 passengers and crew members.
“Every single night, there was a report from the captain about the sickness precautions,” Ian VanHasster said. “You kept hearing these scary things, like, ‘Oh, when can I just get out?'”
The cruise was supposed to last seven days, but the crew made the choice to return one day early in order to get passengers home safely and have more time to sanitize the ship.
