Boudicca Cruises

Irwin Mitchell is acting for a number of passengers following their experience on board various Boudicca Cruises in 2013. The passengers travelled on board the Boudicca Iberian Highlights, Boudicca Norway Winter, Boudicca Norwegian Experience, Boudicca Baltic and Boudicca Mediterranean cruises between February and October 2013.

This follows numerous complaints received about the Boudicca in 2009 and 2010, where more than 130 holidaymakers called on Irwin Mitchell for assistance after their experience travelling aboard the Fred Olsen Cruise Liner. The 2009 and 2010 cases have since settled. Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Travel Law team are also continuing in their fight for justice on behalf of holidaymakers who also suffered during subsequent cruises on the ship in 2011 and 2012.

Holidaymakers aboard these cruises contracted symptoms including, diarrhoea, sickness, abdominal cramps and pain, they have also suffered from high temperatures and headaches. Some of these symptoms are still being experienced by passengers to date and have affected their quality of life upon return to the UK.

Passengers on board the 2013 cruises have alleged that the ship was not adequately cleaned prior to their boarding. It was argued by some that the air conditioning system was not adequately working.

This is the fifth consecutive year Irwin Mitchell have represented passengers who were ill on board the Boudicca ship which can carry up to 800 people. Therefore Irwin Mitchell is eager to investigate this matter further and would urge victims of illness who holidayed aboard the vessel to contact us urgently.

"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."
