Sapphire Princess Cruise, 2015
Specialist international personal injury lawyers at Irwin Mitchell have been instructed by a couple following their cruise on board the Sapphire Princess around South-East Asia in February and March 2015.
The couple travelled to Singapore to embark on the Sapphire Princess for a 15 day cruise around Thailand, Vietnam and Bangkok to celebrate a 65th birthday. One passenger suffered with abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting with his symptoms continuing for the duration of the cruise. He was forced to seek medical attention whilst on board the ship due to the severity of his illness. He was largely confined to his cabin for three days and his wife became unwell shortly after, suffering with similar symptoms.
Our clients continue to suffer with illness following their return to the UK and have now sought medical treatment from their GP.
Jatinder Paul, an international personal injury expert said: “This couple went on a luxury cruise around Asia to celebrate a 65th birthday but were unable to make the most of their holiday.”
If you have travelled on board the Sapphire Cruise and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness or sustained an injury, we 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."
