It sounds like a horror movie plot. People out to sea contract a virus while isolated from the rest of the world, more and more people become infected every day, expect it’s not a movie.

It actually happened to 96 passengers and 6 crew members on the Crown Princess cruise ship.

They contracted some common form of gastrointestinal illness that caused upset stomachs, vomiting and diarrhea.

After 20 days and nights aboard the Mighty Princess, passengers finally got to stretch their legs back on US soil.

Let’s hope that virus doesn’t come mainland.

The last thing we need this holiday is a smelly, gross virus going around.
