MV Ventura, 2016

Our specialist International Personal Injury team is currently representing a family who became ill during their stay on board the MV Ventura cruise in July 2016.

The family’s trip was ruined after three of them were struck with gastric illness during th voyage. They all suffered similar symptoms , including diarrhoea, nausea, stomach cramps and nausea. One client’s symptoms were so severe that he was admitted to hospital and was treated with antibiotics.

Jatinder Paul, an Associate Solicitor and specialist in International Personal Injury cases at Irwin Mitchell, said: "Unfortunately for these passengers, their first cruise experience was ruined due to illness and will now be remembered for all the wrong reasons. We will now be conducting our own investigations as to the cause of our clients’ illness."

If you also stayed on board the MV Ventura cruise and suffered gastric illness, we'd like to hear from you. We specialise in these cases and you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, as well as the pain and suffering caused by your illness.

"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."
