(Reuters) - More than 200 people on two different cruise ships have fallen ill with gastrointestinal sickness, and both vessels were to be disinfected in San Diego, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday.

The first ship, the Celebrity Infinity, saw 106 of its 2,117 guests and six of its 964 crew members come down with what was determined to be the highly contagious norovirus, which can cause symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea, the CDC said.
