BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) - Passengers aboard a cruise ship on which hundreds fell ill recalled days of misery holed up in their rooms or the infirmary as the Explorer of the Seas returned to its home port Wednesday after a Caribbean trip cut short by a suspected outbreak of norovirus.

Retiree Bill Rakowicz, 61, from the city of St. Thomas in Ontario, Canada, said he thought he was just seasick when he began suffering from vomiting, pain and diarrhea caused by the outbreak that sickened nearly 700 passengers and crew.
