Azura Cruise Ship 2015

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist international personal injury lawyers have been contacted by a passenger who suffered gastrointestinal illness aboard the Azura cruise ship, travelling to the Caribbean in October and November 2015. Their symptoms included:

  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal pains
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Lethargy

The holidaymaker was aware of others who suffered with the illness. They also knew about a fellow passenger who didn't suffer with illness but whose partner was unwell and was confined to their cabin; however, the healthy passenger hadn't been confined and was able to leave the cabin they shared with their partner.

It has been reported that the cruise prior to our client's cruise had been struck down with illness and this subsequently delayed the passenger’s cruise for a few hours as the ship was being cleaned.

If you have also travelled on the Azura and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, we'd like to hear from you.

For more advice on making a holiday claim, please contact Irwin Mitchell on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we will be happy to call you back.
