Princess Cruises Passengers to Sue Over Gastro Outbreaks

   February 7, 2018 ,   Accidents

A major class action is prepared against a cruise company for allegedly exposing thousands of its passengers to gastroenteritis.

According to lawyers, the class action could involve up to 16,000 people after a series of 8 nightmare cruises between 2016-2017 aboard Sun Princess.

During each cruise, severe vomiting and diarrhoea swept throughout the vessel.

The claim alleges Carnival Australia, parent company of Princess Cruises, operating the cruise ship, failed in its duty of care to travelers.

It's being accused of "not adhering to adequate sanitisation or providing proper guidelines to those on board about the outbreak of norovirus."

Cruise passengers say that despite having their holidays ruined because of the gastro outbreak, they never received a refund, credit or apology from the cruise line.
