Holiday giant Thomson could be sued by almost 100 holidaymakers who claim they suffered severe sickness and diarrhoea on a luxury Mediterranean cruise ship.
Legal action has been lodged by dozens of passengers travelling on different Island Escape trips over a nine-month period.
They include a honeymoon couple, a man celebrating his 60th birthday and a couple marking their tenth anniversary who all claim their breaks were ruined.
Passengers complained of suffering “severe gastric illness symptoms” after being served “reheated and undercooked food”.
