Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Ship, 2012


Irwin Mitchell have been contacted by a holidaymaker returning from a Mediterranean cruise on board the Celebrity Eclipse Cruise Ship who has reported suffering from gastric illness, including symptoms of diarrhoea and abdominal pain whilst on holiday. 

He saw the doctor on board the ship and later required urgent medical attention at hospital because of a suspected deterioration in his kidney function. He was admitted to hospital in Portugal after being removed from the ship where he remained for approximately 3 weeks. He continues to require dialysis at his local hospital.

Despite some positive reviews, reports indicate that there have been some complaints made in regards to the standard of the food being served on board the cruise with one passengers describing the food as "inedible"  and "repetitive" and has described service in the restaurant as slow.

If you also travelled on the Celebrity Eclipse and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
