(CNN) -- It's not a fun way to end a dream vacation.

Dozens of passengers on a four-night cruise aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship became sick with a stomach illness, according to a company statement.

The Majesty of the Seas docked in Miami Friday after a Caribbean journey that included port calls at Nassau and CocoCay, Bahamas, and Key West, Florida.

Sixty-six of the more than 2,500 passengers aboard experienced gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting and diarrhea, Royal Caribbean International said.

Two of the more than 800 crew members also fell ill, the company said.

The cruise line suspects the cause to be norovirus, according to the company's statement.
