Voyage cut short as illness flares up on cruise ship


By Daniel Brock

Published March 15, 2010

A cruise ship that sailed from Charleston will return to port a day early
with passengers experiencing an outbreak of illness for the third time in
as many trips.

Celebrity Cruises announced today that its ship, the Celebrity Mercury, is
cutting its current voyage short by a day and returning to Charleston on
Thursday after 342 of 1,829 passengers on board became sick with
gastrointestinal illness.

The Mercury will skip its call in Tortola, British Virgin Islands, and also
stay in port here for a two-day cleaning.

The story was first reported on USA Today’s Cruise Log.

“I have made this decision to delay the sailing because we want to maintain
our high health standards onboard our ships, while providing our guests
with the best cruise experience possible,” Daniel Hanrahan, president and
CEO of Celebrity Cruises said in a statement. “The extra time we are taking
to sanitize the ship will help prevent any additional guests from becoming
ill.”
