WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

"The team has so many contacts with foreign insurers and so many people with foreign languages that it is miles ahead of others."

Blue Star Cruise

Irwin Mitchell have been contacted by a party of British holidaymakers who travelled on the Blue Star Cruise in Latin America on an all inclusive basis in October 2016.

One of the holidaymakers experienced severe gastric symptoms including severe diarrhoea, vomiting and blood in stools.

The holidaymakers noticed that some of the food on the cruise was left uncovered for significant periods of time outside in the open air.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in the stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness we know first-hand the potential long term effects that can be associated with such illness, with sometimes permanent long term complications arising such as Post infective Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

If you have travelled on the Blue Star Cruise and subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, 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."
