WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"
Legal 500 (2016)
Aurora Cruise 2013
Irwin Mitchell has been contacted by British holidaymakers who fell ill whilst aboard a cruise which they joined at the end of June 2013 on the Aurora Cruise Ship operated by P&O.
It is alarming to note that this is not the first time we have acted for passengers staying aboard this ship. We have acted for passengers in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and most recently 2012.
Despite some positive reviews, the couple have reported how one of their party fell ill suffering symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal cramping during their stay on board the cruise. It is reported that the symptoms were so bad that he had to seek medical treatment whilst on board the cruise. He is still suffering upon his return home.
The holidaymakers report that they were aware of a number of other passengers who were also ill, some of whom were already on the cruise ship prior to the couple joining the cruise. The holidaymakers have advised they were not informed that passengers were falling ill on board the cruise prior to their departure.
If you also stayed on the Aurora Cruise and suffered illness, the team at Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also your pain and suffering.

"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."
