FRED OLSEN: Holidaymakers Take Action

Fred Olsen Cruise Lines are facing legal action from over 100 passengers after an outbreak of the norovirus after a cruise to the Canary Islands on the ship Boudicca. It’s alleged that they picked up the sickness bug during nine separate outbreaks on the ship between 2009 and 2010, a claim the company has rejected.

Not only does the writ accuse Fred Olsen of not warning passengers or offering an alternative, but it also claims the ship wasn’t adequately deep cleaned between trips.

A Fred Olsen spokesman said, “Fred Olsen Cruise Lines rejects utterly any allegations made in the claim by Irwin Mitchell solicitors – as it has all along – regarding the standards of cleanliness and hygiene aboard its ships, which are of the highest quality across its fleet. These very serious allegations are baseless and are entirely refuted by Fred Olsen Cruise Lines.”
