Joy luxury boat
Report illness on cruise in California
Authorities say 19 people aboard a cruise reported flu-like illnesses when they arrived at a port in southern California.
The Los Angeles Fire Department says authorities were called early Sunday to evaluate patients after they got sick on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship.
Authorities say the patients were evaluated and refused to be transferred to the hospital.
Norwegian says in a statement that strict sanitation procedures were implemented after some guests reported a stomach-related illness.
The luxury ship "Joy" was renovated this year and includes an on-board race track.
The Los Angeles Times reports that paramedics responded to the same ship a week earlier after a report that passengers were ill and four were sent to a hospital for additional treatment.
