Oceania Cruise, 2016
We’re very concerned to learn of an outbreak of norovirus on board the Oceania Cruise Ship during its voyage from Miami to the Caribbean in February 2016.
Despite some positive reviews, we’ve also heard accounts from passengers who fell ill following their stay on board the ship.
One holidaymaker said that they found out after the cruise that other passengers had suffered similar problems on the ship while travelling in both November and December 2015. They said if they had known about these problems in advance of their trip, they would not have sailed. A number of passengers say that they were completely confined to their cabin for the duration of the cruise because of the gastric problems they suffered.
Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. We have significant experience helping those unlucky enough to contract gastric illness while on holiday. We’re very aware of the complications that can develop because of such illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The effects can sometimes develop into a problem that is long-term, or even permanent.
If you also travelled on board the Oceania Cruise Ship and have subsequently been ill, we’d like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases like this and can advise you on claiming compensation for your trip.

"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."
