BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Hundreds of passengers who got sick on a Royal Caribbean cruise are now back on dry land.

The Oasis of the Seas docked in Port Canaveral on Saturday. The boat arrived a day early due to a norovirus outbreak.

Officials said at least 475 people became sick while on the cruise.

Passengers said the cruise staff tried their best to contain the virus. The cruise line said all passengers will receive a full refund.
