Can I claim compensation for norovirus on board a cruise ship?

Every year thousands of British holidaymakers take a luxury trip on board a cruise ship. Yet despite many enjoying a relaxing holiday at sea, outbreaks of illness do occur.

Norovirus is one of the most common causes of illness on board cruise ships. Commonly referred to as the ‘winter vomiting bug’, norovirus is a virus that can cause gastroenteritis – an intestinal infection resulting in symptoms including vomiting and diarrhoea.

Norovirus can spread quickly and, partly due to the confined nature of cruise ships, outbreaks can affect hundreds of passengers in a short space of time.

For more information on norovirus cruise ship claims and how to start yours, give us a call now on 0330 100 2851.

What are my rights?

If you have contracted norovirus during a cruise holiday, you may have the right to make a claim for compensation.

At Your Holiday Claims, we have represented numerous holidaymakers who have been affected by outbreaks of norovirus on board cruise ships.

In March 2014, we secured a combined payout of £42,500 for 26 British holidaymakers, after outbreaks of norovirus affected passengers on Fred Olsen’s Boudicca cruise ship between November 2009 and April 2010.

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
