The Disney Wonder has been hit by a Gastrointestinal outbreak and has spread to almost 100 passengers onboard. The good news is that the cruise came to an end today as scheduled so the Gastro bug shouldn’t be able to make any more passengers or crew sick.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posts 92 out of 2,679 passengers onboard became sick. Only 5 crew members got the bug so onboard services were not affected too much. In response of the outbreak, Disney Cruise Line has increased cleaning and sanitizing all around the ship. Most cruise lines will have a plan of action for these situations and the cruise line has activated procedures.

Gastrointestinal bug is also known as Norovirus which can also be found on land. Symptoms include vomiting and diarrhea. So far this year the CDC is reporting 10 cruise ships have been hit by Norovirus but the number is a lot more if you includes those ships outside of the United States.

Disney Wonder is doing extra cleaning and sanitizing while at its homeport in Miami, Florida. The ship has just completed 4-night Bahamas cruise. The 85,000 gross ton vessel is scheduled to depart on a 14-night Panama Canal cruise which will end in San Diego, California on May 15. Fingers crossed the Gastro bug doesn’t continue on the upcoming voyage.
