"The Princess Cruise line Ruby Princess has reported a stomach illness outbreak on its latest cruise. The ship had voyage dates of March 3 to March 10, 2013. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea. There is no known cause, although the cause of most outbreaks on cruise ships is norovirus. Symptoms of that highly contagious virus include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, along with possible headache and low grade fever.

Two hundred sixty six passengers (out of 3,129) and 10 crew (out of 1,189) reportedly became ill during the voyage."

"276 people aboard Princess Cruises’ Ruby Princess fell ill with gastrointestinal symptoms last week.

Illnesses were characterized by diarrhea and vomiting, likely caused by Norovirus, which infects the intestines and most commonly affects people in enclosed spaces such as cruise ships, daycares and nursing homes."
