Yet another outbreak if gastro on the Sun Princess. There has been two gastro outbreaks in two weeks, affecting more than 250 passengers over two cruises.
Over 160 travellers have been affected by the norovirus stomach bug on a Brisbane to New Zealand cruise. 90 people had the same affliction in a Papua New Guinea trip undertaken by the same vessel, only two weeks prior.
The norovirus is a highly contagious, hardy bug. This means that it can survive for more than a month on most surfaces.
