Norovirus “curse” strikes on Fred Olsen Balmoral cruise

Reports of a norovirus outbreak onboard the Balmoral’s ‘Old England to New England’ cruise suggest many British holidaymakers are suffering from the symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting. Of the 917 passengers onboard, 252 are said to be affected by the virus with 6 crew members suffering as well.

Urgent tests confirmed the presence of norovirus and a statement from Fred Olsen reported that the company is complying ‘with all the necessary maritime agencies and authorities’ in the matter.

Some online commentators have dubbed the Balmoral the “cursed cruise ship” and allude to previous outbreaks of norovirus onboard the Fred Olsen liner in May 2015 and early 2010.

Tracy Stansfield, an expert cruise ship illness solicitor at Your Holiday claims commented, “It is alarming to hear reports of a widespread norovirus outbreak onboard the Fred Olsen Balmoral cruise ship.

“Norovirus can completely ruin a holiday, leaving those affected confined to their cabins whilst they recover.

“I find it distressing that norovirus appears to be a recurring problem for the Balmoral and I would urge anyone who has fallen ill onboard Balmoral to contact Your Holiday Claims as soon as possible to start a no win, no fee claim for compensation.”

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.
