    Compensation for a cruise ruined due to illness


    Imagine the scene – you’ve booked your cruise, you’ve waited months for the departure date to arrive and you are finally boarding your cruise ship with the promise of days or even weeks of cruising ahead of you. You’d be perfectly entitled to feel excited at the prospect of what lies ahead.

    The last thing you would consider happening would be for your cruise to be ruined as a result of contracting food poisoning while you were on board. Fortunately this situation won’t happen for the vast majority of passengers who head off on a cruise every year. The majority of cruise companies have excellent standards and adhere to those standards at all times. However, there is the potential for this to occur occasionally, and you could have a cruise ruined due to illness that would otherwise have been marvellous to enjoy.

    When food poisoning does occur in this situation there is the potential for it to affect quite a few people. Since there are buffets and similar food outlets on board a cruise ship, many people will be eating from the same place. If bugs or bacteria do grow they could potentially affect lots of people.

    How would food poisoning ruin a cruise?

    You probably know how horrible a bout of food poisoning can be. With assorted symptoms that leave you feeling far from your best, you won’t have a chance to see any of the destinations your cruise ship will visit – not for a few days anyway. You won’t feel strong enough or well enough to explore the ship itself either, so you can see how horrible this could be if you were unlucky enough to suffer from food poisoning on board your chosen ship.
