The Fred Olsen cruise ship Boudicca has been hit by a second vomiting outbreak. The ship was on a 10 night Baltic voyage when a gastroenteritis bug hit at least 85 passengers onboard. In total there were 736 guests onboard and thankfully the outbreak didn’t spread to others onboard. The ships previous outbreak was just 11 days ago!
Boudicca is currently docked in Belfast where the cruise originally started from. The ship ended the voyage early so it can be sanitized intensively.
The passengers effected by the outbreak will get a voucher from Fred Olsen cruise line for a future cruise. Passengers scheduled for the next sailing which is a 12-night Canary Island cruise have received letters from the British cruise line informing them of the situation but the sailing isn’t expected to be delayed with only minor issues predicted.
