Common illnesses on cruise ships

A cruise ship holiday abroad should be a chance to relax and take in the sights and sounds of destinations around the world.

However, every year hundreds of passengers find themselves in choppy waters after sailing into sickness on cruise ships. Many are left confined to their cabins for days and can miss out on visiting numerous stops on their long awaited cruise holiday.

In our latest article, the expert cruise ship claim solicitors at Your Holiday Claims look at what causes illness on cruise ships and whether you’re entitled to make a claim on your return home.

Compensation for illness on cruises

Outbreaks of norovirus on cruise ships

Norovirus has been responsible for some of the largest outbreaks of illness on board cruise ships.

Passengers are often left suffering symptoms of vomiting, stomach cramps, headaches and painful cramps.

Norovirus can spread quickly through close contact with someone who has norovirus, touching contaminated surfaces or objects or eating contaminated food.

When the proper cleaning and hygiene practices are not put in place, outbreaks of norovirus can quickly affect hundreds of passengers. In some cases, outbreaks can even spread from cruise from cruise and last for months.

Previously, the expert solicitors at Your Holiday Claims helped a group of 26 holidaymakers claim £42,500 after outbreaks of norovirus on the Fred Olsen Boudicca cruise ship which continued for 6 months. We can help you claim the compensation you deserve if you’ve been affected by norovirus.

Can you claim compensation for your cruise ship illness?

As long as your cruise holiday took place within the past 3 years, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your cruise ship holiday illness.

If the proper hygiene practices were not put into place once the outbreak began, your cruise operator could be held liable for your illness.

This means that you can bring a claim for compensation you deserve against your cruise operator right here in the UK.
