Have you had your much-anticipated break ruined due to a cruise ship holiday illness outbreak?
There are protocols and procedures that cruise operators should adhere to in order to prevent or contain an outbreak of illness on board. With large numbers of guests and crew inhabiting a relatively small space, when illness occurs it can unfortunately spread quickly.
Our specialist team have years of experience in handling cruise ship illness claims. In the last few years, there have been large outbreaks on cruises of illnesses such as:
- food poisoning (eg salmonella, e.coli, campylobacter, shigella, cyclospora)
- viruses (eg norovirus, stomach bugs)
- bacterial conditions (eg legionnaires’ disease)
If the operator has failed in their duty of care, we could help you make a successful cruise ship holiday illness compensation claim, with typical awards ranging from £700 to £40,000 dependent on the severity of your illness.

Know your rights
Tour operators and Cruise line operators are legally required to uphold and maintain the highest standards of food, hygiene and the health and safety of it’s passengers on board. Failure to do so can and does lead to claims being pursued against them, which is why the majority of cruise line and tour operators rely on the Athens Convention.
What is the Athens Convention?
The Athens Convention operates in favour of cruise ship passengers as it imposes a presumption of the carrier, meaning it must prove the illness or injury you have contracted wasn’t their fault. It also imposes limits on the amount of compensation that can be claimed for personal injury, or in the event of a fatality.
Solely for information purposes, here is a list of tour operators and cruise lines to whom the Athens Convention applies:
- Celebrity Cruises
- Costa Cruises
- Cunard Cruises
- Fred Olsen Cruises
- Island Cruises
- Ocean Village Cruises
- MSC Cruise
- NCL Cruises
