Here at Your Holiday Claims we have read reports of another outbreak of norovirus affecting passengers on board the Fred Olsen Balmoral cruise ship.
Hundreds of passengers are believed to have been affected by the outbreak which has resulted in Fred Olsen Cruise Lines cancelling an upcoming three-day cruise.
Just last month we were contacted by holidaymakers who had fallen ill on board the Balmoral cruise ship. Many guests have reported experienced symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea, which are commonly caused by norovirus.
Recently , the Balmoral was on an 11 night Scandinavian cruise which departed Southampton on June 9th. Crew members are believed to have carried out extra cleaning on board the ship. Those who became ill were confined to their cabins for 2 days.
Norovirus are a group of viruses which can cause gastroenteritis. This often results in those affected experiencing severe sickness and diarrhoea.
Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday claims solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, commented: âIt is concerning to read of another outbreak of norovirus on board the Balmoral cruise ship so soon after we were contacted by passengers who had fallen ill on the ship.
âOutbreaks of norovirus on board cruise ships can spread quickly, so it is vital that high standards of hygiene are maintained at all times.
âI would encourage anyone who has fallen ill during their stay on board the Balmoral cruise ship to contact myself or a member of our expert holiday claims team.â
