Cruise ship illness on board Harmony of the Seas
The world’s largest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, is firmly under the sickness spotlight at Your Holiday Claims.
Despite only launching in May 2016, the 6,780 capacity liner has featured prominently in the national press for all the wrong reasons.
Passengers who boarded the vessel at Southampton for a 4-night cruise to Rotterdam in late May were left far from impressed and claim the “ship was not fit for paying passengers” with reports of construction work, overflowing urinals and poor hygiene common on review site Cruise Critic.
In a particularly alarming report, one holidaymaker on this cruise comments that they, along with many other guests were served a “tray of breaded chicken that was completely raw” in the Windjammer buffet.
They add that “the ship was so unprepared for this sailing.”
“Basic health and safety standards could not be met. There was no hand sanitizer near the main dining areas and on the penultimate day, we were told by a staff member that the ship had no hot water (?)”
Unfortunately, it appears that these “teething problems” are continuing to trouble passengers. Holidaymakers who sailed on board the Harmony of the Seas as recently as November and December 2016 report worrying lapses in food hygiene with meals said to be frequently “cold.”
One November holidaymaker even labels dining “totally unpleasant” claiming that the ship is “too big, borderline chaotic, weak food and service.”
Your Holiday Claims regularly successfully settle claims for holidaymakers struck by illness on board cruise ships. Experienced lawyer, Tracy Stansfield secured a staggering £42,500 in total compensation for 26 clients after outbreaks of norovirus plagued the Fred Olsen Boudicca liner.
Commenting on the reports of illness on the Harmony of the Seas, Tracy said: “It appears that poor food hygiene has been something of a regular feature on this vessel.
“There is no excuse for illness on a cruise ship holiday and tour operators must be held accountable for any failing in their duty of care. Whether this is the first sailing or the hundredth sailing, passengers should expect nothing but the highest standards of safety and hygiene.
“I strongly urge anyone who has been unfortunate enough to suffer from illness symptoms such as sickness and diarrhoea on board the Harmony of the Seas to come forward and contact Your Holiday Claims for specialised legal advice.”
