SEVERAL VISITORS ON board an Australian cruise ship to Barbados were confined to their rooms after a virus outbreak on the vessel.

A gastroenteritis bug prevented 11 visitors from disembarking the Sea Princess after it docked at the Bridgetown Port at 7:45 a.m. yesterday.

It was the first time in over five years that the ship, which carries an estimated 1 950 passengers and is currently on a 90-day world cruise, had docked in Barbados’ waters.
