GALVESTON, TEXAS (PIX11) — A cruise ship is being sanitized in Texas after more than 100 people became sickened by Norovirus, which is highly contagious. The Crown Princess docked in Galveston Saturday.

Princess Cruises says the virus was likely carried onto the ship by boarding passengers.
The ship left Venice, Italy, earlier this month for what was supposed to be a fun 20-day cruise.
