BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas is returning to a Florida port a day early and giving passengers full refunds after 277 guests and crew members were hit with an outbreak of Norovirus as it sailed to Jamaica, officials said.
Cruise line spokesman Owen Torres told The Associated Press, “We think the right thing to do is get everyone home early rather than have guests worry about their health.”
Torres said the ship will return to Port Canaveral Saturday. It sailed from there Sunday on a seven-day Caribbean cruise.
