Royal Caribbean International has some explaining to do. More than 600 passengers and crew members fell sick with stomach flu during a 10-day Caribbean cruise. While the ship docked in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, a representative from the CDC inspected the craft, leading the company to send the ship back days earlier. (Photo: AP Photo/Thomas Layer)
