SAN DIEGO -- Four crew members and 84 passengers have contracted the norovirus on a cruise ship that sails out of San Diego, 10News reported.

The Holland America Oosterdam ship departed San Diego on Feb. 21 for a cruise to Baja California last week and is due to return early Saturday morning.

Passengers infected with the norovirus -- which includes stomach flu-like symptoms -- were quarantined to their cabins, a Holland America representative said. The representative also said the ship would be sterilized once it returns to San Diego.
