The disappearance of a Connecticut man on his honeymoon initially sparked concerns about cruise ship safety.

More recently, a cruise ship tipped over in Port Canaveral, causing several injuries, and Saturday a Florida woman cruising the Mediterranean was reported missing.

Farrah Harper, who has been on one cruise, says she is worried about boarding another cruise ship.

"The reasons I wouldn't get on a boat is because everyone's coming back sick, boats tipping over, people coming up missing with no leads, so it's really discouraging as far as getting on a cruise ship."

Also, a cruise ship reported 230 people aboard a ship became sick with a gastrointestinal illness.

The ship docked in Port Canaveral Sunday morning.
