The Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas cruise ship cut short its journey short after 475 passengers and crew members were infected with a norovirus, Royal Caribbean Cruises announced Thursday.
The cruise line initially reported on Thursday that more than 250 passengers had fallen ill, according to ABC News.
According to ABC, Guest and crew members began getting sick when the ship departed the Port Canaveral in Florida on Jan. 6.
The ship, originally scheduled for a seven night cruise, made its first stop in Haiti Tuesday where the ship hosted a lunch buffet on land, said Abby Perrin, a passenger on the ship told ABC News.
That night, Perrin said she and her mother began experiencing symptoms associated with food poisoning.
The next day, the ship arrived to Jamaica, but passengers said they weren’t allowed to leave the vessel.
Thursday morning, the ship headed for its next scheduled destination in Cozumel, Mexico, but officials canceled the cruise while it was still en route.
Passengers were told that they would get a full refund, it was reported.
