Nieuw Amsterdam Cruise Ship 2012

Irwin Mitchell have been instructed by a holidaymaker returning from a cruise on board the Nieuw Amsterdam Cruise Ship operated by Holland America Line. The holidaymaker has reported suffering from gastric illness and having diarrhoea with associated abdominal cramps followed by sickness. A number of other guests were reported to be suffering from similar conditions.

The holidaymaker reported that due to the severity of their gastric illness they received hospital treatment both in America where they were placed on a drip and on return to the UK.

Despite some positive reports, some reports indicate that some passengers felt that the food being served on board the cruise was not hot enough in particular the meat dishes and some passengers report food being left out for long periods and being re served on some occasions.

If you also travelled on this cruise 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.

"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."
