Illness onboard Balmoral Cruise Ship

It is reported that a significant number of holidaymakers have been struck by symptoms of gastric illness following their cruise onboard the Balmoral Cruiseliner, operated by Fred Olsen.

It is reported that over 200 passengers have become ill with symptoms of gastric illness during their cruise around West Africa and the Cape Verde Islands which commenced at the end of January 2009. It is reported that the ship was allegedly refused entry from the Cape Verde Islands due to the problems onboard and that many guests have been confined to their cabins.
