P&O Adonia Cruise, January 2015

Irwin Mitchell is investigating P&O’s Adonia cruise following outbreaks of pneumonia and gastric illness in January 2015.

Despite some positive reviews, we have received negative reports regarding the hygiene standards on board the ship. Furthermore, passengers have been left disappointed after low levels of care from the crew.

Passengers have reported a number of problems on board including a lack of hand sanitizer dispensers at restaurant entrances and poor food standards. We have also heard that the cabin of an ill guest was not fumigated or deep cleaned before the arrival of the next set of passengers. One guest claims that they were left to find their own way to hospital after their illness worsened.

Reports have described the ship as dusty with a distinct lack of attention given to cleanliness. On occasion, spillages at restaurants were not cleaned up for hours and waiters wore mucky gloves with holes in. There have also been further reports of illness on board the ship.

Our team are concerned that many of the reported illness cases could involve food poisoning. We have significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness and we know first-hand the potential long term effects that can be associated with such illness.

If you also travelled on board the Adonia cruise vessel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
