ORIANA- Luxury cruise ship

P&O Oriana will undergo extra cleaning in the near future, which will be eyed by the Southampton Port Health Authority

The eruption of the Norovirus winter vomiting bug on P&O Oriana, the luxury cruise ship, which affected in excess of 160 passengers, has compelled the cruise company’s managing director, Carol Marlow, to discharge an apology.

Carol Marlow has voiced that the company is extremely apologetic over the outbreak of Norovirus on Oriana. The cruise company didn’t desire that any of its passengers on Oriana experience sickness, due to a bug. The company didn’t want any passenger to experience illness on one of its holiday luxury tours.

More than 160 passengers were harassed by diarrhoea and vomiting because of the Norovirus winter vomiting bug, which broke out on P&O Oriana during a 10-day Baltic cruise, which departed on December 4. The P&O Oriana cruise ship has returned already to dock in Southampton.

This was the second bout of the diarrhoea and vomiting sickness bug on the Oriana luxury cruise ship in consecutive cruises. The Oriana luxury cruise liner has the capacity to carry 1843 passengers.

The Oriana luxury cruise ship is set for additional cleaning before it navigates later for a 23-night cruise to the Mediterranean. The Southampton Port Health Authority has remarked that it would be assessing the cleaning of P&O Oriana.

Passengers, who were bedevilled by the Oriana Norovirus sickness, were restricted to their cabins during the Oriana Norovirus outbreak.

As per Carol Marlow, the Oriana cruise ship provides its passengers with a letter on boarding, which questions the passengers whether they have been in touch with anyone suffering from the Norovirus winter vomiting bug. The Oriana luxury cruise liner does its best to make certain that Norovirus doesn’t come aboard the ship.

Along with P&O Oriana’s apology, its managing director has also voiced that, if passengers have been symptomatic prior to their cruise, the Oriana cruise ship requests the passengers not to embark or stay put in their cabin until they aren’t symptomatic.

Passengers, who were aboard the luxury cruise ship, have described their experience as nightmarish, voicing that the affected people were falling like flies, yet the crew insisted that everything was okay.
