LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say 19 people aboard a cruise ship reported flu-like illnesses as they reached a Southern California port.
The Los Angeles Fire Department says authorities were called early Sunday to evaluate patients after they fell ill on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship.
Authorities say the patients were evaluated and declined to be taken to the hospital.
KABC-TV reports that a Norwegian spokesperson said stringent sanitation procedures were implemented after a few guests reported a stomach-related illness.
The luxury cruise ship "Joy" was refurbished this year and includes an on-board race track.
