Gastro attack on cruise ship unfazed passengers

Published on : Thursday, December 17, 2015

small Cruise ship fireA dream turned into a nightmare when a cruise ship turned into a floating hospital after 182 travellers were stricken with gastroenteritis, but in typical Australian fashion, disembarking passengers have taken the outbreak in their stride.

 

Royal Caribbean cruises ship Explorer of the Seas arrived in Sydney on Wednesday, with medics forced to notify NSW Health authorities of the stomach flu contamination on board. But passengers told the media that the outbreak won’t blow out their holiday plans.

 

“It’s pretty scary, but it will be fine,” said one woman passenger.

 

Other passengers said the ships corridors were flooded with medics going in and out of rooms. The spreading illness was made worse by rough conditions at sea.

 

“Just about everybody was sick,” one of the passengers said. Another passenger who fell ill said they initially isolated themselves in their cabin, but they began feeling better after visiting on-board medics.

 

“We went to the medical and once they gave us the injection and tablets we were fine and enjoyed the rest of the cruise,” the passenger said.

 

None of the passengers required hospital treatment. NSW Health was informed due to the extent of the viral outbreak.
