BAYONNE - Undaunted passengers got on a cruise ship in Bayonne today despite an outbreak of norovirus aboard.
Many boarded the Celebrity Silhouette just hours after passengers left who had been affected by norovirus.
The turnaround for the 3,000-passenger ship was delayed so the crew could disinfect the ship. The virus caused flu-like symptoms in dozens of passengers and crew members who got off the ship this morning.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports 174 passengers and 11 crew members came down with the bug.
It marks the latest outbreak of norovirus that has also sickened students at Rider and Princeton universities this week.
