While the families of at least 14 people missing from the Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia are awaiting information, and the bodies of six others have been pulled from the wreckage of the ship that hit the rocky coast around the small island of Giglio, and sank with more than 4,000 people onboard, British vacationers are filing  a lawsuit against another cruise line, Thomson, following a “holiday from hell,” This is Staffordshire reported.

According to complaints filed on behalf of more than 200 passengers, toilets on the cruise ship were broken and overflowing, air conditioning units were broke, and food was reused, and overcooked. Numerous passengers reportedly became sick because of the cruise.

Passenger Cynthia Holdcroft told reporters that one particular stairwell stunk so badly, passengers had to hold their noses. She said that passengers tried to hold meetings about the conditions on the ship, but that staff did their best to break them up.

Passengers told news sources that the cost of the trip cost £1,000,(about $1538.97) and they hope the Royal Courts of Justice will help them get most of their money back.

It’s been a bad month for the cruise industry.  The  Italian cruise ship Costa Concordia Captain Francesco Schettino is facing manslaughter charges in Italy for sailing off course and abandoning ship while passengers were struggling to find safety, VOA News reports.     The Concordia ran aground and capsized last Friday off the coast of Italy.  At least 6 people are confirmed dead, and 16 people are missing in that cruise ship disaster. disclaimer: This article: British Vacationers File Lawsuit against Thomson Cruise Ship over Stench was posted on Monday, January 16th, 2012 at 7:59 pm at and is filed under Accident Lawsuits.
