Omni Bridgeway backs claim against cruise operator

Omni Bridgeway is backing a proposed class action on behalf of passengers who booked and travelled on a Scenic Tours river cruise from 1 June 2018 to 31 December 2018 on the Rhine-Moselle-Main-Danube river systems.

It will be alleged that Scenic Tours breached the consumer guarantees contained in the Australian Consumer Law and operated river cruises during the European Summer of 2018 on the Rhine-Moselle-Main-Danube river systems that did not meet the experience and level of service that the passengers had been promised and paid for.

This class action is being funded and run as a managed investment scheme, in compliance with new funded class action regulations introduced by the Australian government in 2020. The claim is being brought by Somerville Legal on behalf of the passengers.
