Nearly 300 guests have been sickened with a stomach virus aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, a spokesperson said.

The cruise line’s Oasis of the Seas ship had been on a seven-night cruise to the Caribbean and will return to Florida on Saturday, a day earlier than expected, the spokesperson told NBC News.

The article goes on to state the following:

Nearly 9,000 guests are aboard the ship and all will receive refunds, the company said. A total of 277 guests and crew members have the gastrointestinal illness. They’re being treated with over-the-counter medication by the ship’s medical team.

The spokesperson identified the illness as the norovirus, an infectious disease also known as the stomach bug, stomach “flu” or winter vomiting disease.

However, norovirus is not related to influenza. It’s a notoriously contagious and a difficult-to-prevent gastrointestinal virus. If someone near you is sick with norovirus, prepare yourself.
