Set Sail Safely Act to Get Cruise Industry Moving Again

Florida Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio have introduced a new Set Sail Safely Act to get the cruise industry moving again.

The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) has reported that a gastrointestinal illness has spread onboard the Oceania Riviera which is operated by Luxury cruise line Oceania Cruises.

The bug which is also known as Norovirus causes vomiting and diarrhea. According to the CDC 79 out of 1, 225 passengers and 3 crew members on the ship have been hit with the bug. The voyage is not yet over so more passengers could become sick.

In response to the outbreak the crew of Oceania Riviera activated procedures to help stop the spread. Extra cleaning and sanitation has been implemented and more than likely advise is being given to everyone onboard. There have been previous cases when guests are told to stay in their staterooms until it passes but no word yet if Oceania Cruises is doing this.

The 66,000 gross ton Oceania Riviera is currently sailing a 10-day Sands & Shores Miami To Miami cruise which departed Miami, Florida on February 12. The ship with 1,225 passengers onboard is scheduled to arrive back on February 22. The CDC will board the ship once it arrives back to investigate the outbreak further.
