Vomiting was primary symptom on Bahamas cruise.
ORLANDO, Fla. — The CDC is investigating an outbreak of a stomach bug aboard the Disney Wonder cruise ship last week.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that 92 passengers and 5 crew members reported falling ill.
The ship had almost 2,700 passengers and almost 1,000 crew members. It left Miami last Wednesday and returned Sunday after going to the Bahamas.
A spokeswoman says Disney Cruise Line implemented added sanitation measures such as continuous cleaning of handrails. Self-service stations at buffets and ice cream stations also were discontinued to limit passenger contact with food.
