Illness Aboard The Ventura Caribbean Cruise

Irwin Mitchell’s leading international personal injury team has been instructed to act on behalf of a couple who have returned from a voyage on board the Ventura cruise vessel which is operated by P&O Cruises.

The passengers suffered serious gastric symptoms including diarrhoea, stomach pains, vomiting and lethargy.

The passengers raised concerns about the quality of some of the food and that occasionally the food was left uncovered. They reported that their clothes were ruined after the toilet in their cabin leaked and caused flooding.

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist illness experts have vast experience in helping victims of major illness outbreaks in hotels and on board cruise vessels, in the UK and abroad, to gain answers and justice over the problems they have face.

Jatinder Paul, a solicitor and expert in illness claims at Irwin Mitchell, said: “Through our work on thousands of cases, we have seen first-hand how illnesses of this kind can have a dramatic impact on sufferers, often leading to the development of long-term health issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome from which they may never recover from.”

If you have also cruised on this vessel and suffered gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday.
