MSC Orchestra Cruise Ship

Irwin Mitchell has been instructed by a passenger who suffered illness following their holiday on board the MSC Orchestra Cruise Ship between February 2015 and April 2015.

It is concerning to hear of a number of issues which our client encountered on the ship. It was highlighted that the food served was of a poor quality and that some of the members of staff appeared to be handling food and utensils in the self service restaurant without washing their hands first. It was also expressed that passengers who were unwell were not confined to their cabins.

Our client suffered from symptoms including breathlessness, coughing, loss of appetite, lethargy and fever. This individual was also aware of other passengers experiencing similar symptoms, in particular one holidaymaker who was diagnosed with Legionnaires’ disease.

If you have also travelled on board the MSC Orchestra Cruise and have subsequently suffered from illness, we would like to hear from you.

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

"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."
