Enquiry received following cruise ship illness

Here at Your Holiday Claims we have recently received an enquiry following reports of illness on-board the Thomson Majesty cruise ship.

This comes after an outbreak of illness aboard the ship was reported last year when an engagement getaway ended in a couple’s holiday being ruined by sickness.

Lauren and Danny Bushaway went on a cruise to the Canary Islands in 2013. During the cruise Danny popped the question, shortly before falling violently ill and needing three injections from the doctor to stop his vomiting.

Other guests have also taken to Cruise Critic to review their holiday cruise with the Thomson Majesty.

A “very unhappy and poorly customer” commented: “Food was lukewarm at best, many passengers were poorly with norovirus. This was confirmed whilst on the ship”.

Another guest said they had heard reports of norovirus whilst on their cruise and added: “We saw first-hand a cleaner using one damp cloth on handrails, elevators, door handles. All they did was contaminate clean surfaces and move around the germs.”

“There was fluff sticking to surfaces and kitchen equipment was grubby if not worse. Health and safety appeared non-existent nor was proper training on basic hygiene”.

Last year Your Holiday Claims successfully helped a total of 26 British holidaymakers claim a combined total of £42,500 in compensation after they were affected by an outbreak of gastric illness during a holiday on the Boudicca cruise ship.

Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, Anne Thomson, said: “Outbreaks of illness can spread incredibly quickly on-board cruise ships so it really is extremely important that excellent standards of hygiene are maintained.

“If you have fallen ill whilst staying on board the Thomson Majesty I would encourage you to get in touch with us as soon as possible to see whether you would be entitled to make a claim”.

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

I would like to thank Tracy Stansfield for the work she has carried out for me and assisting me in getting justice against the tour operator.

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.
Christopher Whitwell
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.
