Food Poisoning on a Cruise Ship

Let our Miami cruise ship injury attorney help!

Food poisoning occurs more often on cruise ships than many realize. There is such a variety of food available on cruise ships that it can easily become second-nature to accept all meals without questioning their safety.

While it is the responsibility of ship management to maintain proper safety standards, this does not always happen. Food can become dangerous if it is not stored at property temperatures or is cooked improperly due to overloaded staff. A passenger may unknowingly contract a foodborne illness and also spread contagious illnesses to others more rapidly, suffering even more severely while trapped on a ship.

Cruise Food Poisoning Statistics

The Center for Disease Control reported that in 2018, 658 passengers and crew members from 11 different cruise lines experienced gastrointestinal illness. Some of the most common types of food poisoning that occur on cruise ships include:

  • Norovirus
  • Salmonella
  • E. coli
  • Rotavirus
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Legionnaire's disease
