CDC And Celebrity Cruises Can't Figure Out Why Passengers Keep Getting Sick

Remember the diarrhea nightmare vessel that sickened 450 passengers a few weeks back? Once it got back home, Celebrity Cruises delayed the next trip by a day so that it could perform a “full cleaning.” It didn’t help much, though: CNN says that about 10% of passengers on the next sailing got sick, and about 19% of passengers on the current sailing are now sick.

The Centers for Disease Control has recommended that the company not take the boat out for at least four full days while they try to figure out what’s going on.
