    Passengers on a Holland America Cruise Ship returned to Port Everglades in Florida Friday morning after at least 60 people on-board became sick, officials say.

    The passengers on the MS Maasdam began experiencing gastrointestinal illness while on a 14-day sailing. Sick guests and crew were kept inside staterooms.

    In a statement, Holland America Line says the ship will undergo a thorough sanitizing.

    The ship is scheduled to depart at 5 p.m. on its next sailing, a 15-day Atlantic Coast Cruise from Fort Lauderdale to Montreal, Canada.

    This is a developing story and will be updated as soon as new information becomes available.
