Barfing on Boudicca in the Baltics, Thanks to Norovirus

June 18, 2013

Passengers are reportedly taking legal action after many became ill during a 14-day Baltic cruise aboard Fred Olsen Lines’ Boudicca. Similar incidents were reported during three earlier sailing in March and April on the 880-passenger vessel. The ship has undergone a “deep clean” since its return to Liverpool, as has the cruise terminal itself, according to the Liverpool Echo, as quoted in eTurboNews.com: http://www.eturbonews.com/35518/fred-olsen-cruise-lines-sued-over-norovirus-outbreak

While passengers showing symptoms were quarantined in their cabins for 48 hours, then examined by a doctor before rejoining other cruisers, and the line regards its systems as :..among the best in the industry,” to have repeated sailings affected by gastrointestinal illness to this degree certainly raises some questions.

No word on compensation offered to passengers for their curtailed cruise: more to come!
