SUPREME COURT AWARDS CRUISE PASSENGERS UP TO $20K EACH FOLLOWING SCENIC CLASS ACTION
Australian passengers who booked on Scenic Tour‘s ill-fated 2013 European river cruises have been awarded up to $20,635 each in damages, according to court documents published last week. The class action against Scenic involves approximately 1,200 claimants and the Court’s judgment may see Scenic facing a damages bill of up to $28 million including interest. Somerville Legal, alongside litigation funder Omni Bridgeway, is currently investigating the commencement of a further class action against Scenic as a result of similarly disrupted cruises that took place in 2018.
