Some 92 passengers and 13 crew members aboard the Ruby Princess fell ill with the virus, which causes vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach pain
A cruise of a lifetime has ended in misery for nearly 100 passengers, who fell ill with the norovirus.
Suffering vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach pain, 92 passengers and 13 crew members on a Princess Cruise Lines ship have been affected. The Ruby Princess cruise had been sailing from South Florida.
Meanwhile, there has been an increase in the number of cases of gastrointestinal illness among passengers on Crown Princess, which docked at Port Everglades in Florida.
Princess Cruise Lines spokeswoman Julie Benson said the cases did not appear to be related and the cause of the illness had not yet been determined.

All cabins and public areas on the ships were being disinfected, which will delay their next departures, Ms Benson said.
