LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More than 150 people contract the norovirus on a cruise ship.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say passengers and crew became sick on the trip from Britain. The ship is now docked in Virginia.

The cruise line says sick passengers were confined to their rooms in hopes of stopping the spread of the virus. Seven people remain in isolation.

The CDC says it plans to have staff evaluate the ship this weekend.
