LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities said 19 people aboard a cruise ship reported flu-like illnesses as they reached a Southern California port.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said authorities were called early Sunday to evaluate patients after they fell ill on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship.

Authorities said the patients were evaluated and declined to be taken to the hospital.

Norwegian said in a statement that stringent sanitation procedures were implemented after a few guests reported a stomach-related illness.

The luxury ship "Joy" was refurbished this year and includes an on-board race track.

The Los Angeles Times reported paramedics responded to the same ship a week earlier after a report passengers were ill and four were sent to a hospital for further treatment.
