Ryndam Cruise Liner – Holland America Line

 Irwin Mitchell is concerned to learn that a number of holidaymakers staying aboard the Ryndam Cruise liner are returning from their stay aboard the ship complaining of severe gastric illness.

It is possible that a breakdown in cleaning and hygiene standards resulted in the illnesses being complained of, as reported by the Centre for Disease Control.  Reports indicate that the cause of the gastric illness may have been due to the poor quality of food and lack of hygiene standards practised aboard the cruise liner. In particular, we have learnt that there are reports of food being served undercooked and recycled food was displayed uncovered for long periods of time. It is reported that guests suffered from symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps.

If you also stayed aboard this cruise liner and suffered gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Travel Litigation team would like to hear from you as you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also, the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you have suffered.
