World's largest cruise ship held in port after second norovirus outbreak

Updated:
MIAMI (AP) Two more doctors and 45 more cleaning staff will be on the next voyage for Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas cruise ship.

This after a second outbreak of norovirus on the ship sickened 108 people last week.

The ship was held in port today in Miami for an extensive cleaning. The Center for Disease Control has recommended repeated cleanings of "high-touch" surfaces, such as door handles, elevator buttons and railings.

More than 380 passengers became ill in the first outbreak, which happened during a cruise about two weeks ago.

The cruise ship is the world's largest and is scheduled to start its next voyage Tuesday.
