October 17, 2008, Newsletter Issue #65: (84) Check Cruise Ship Report Cards

Tip of the Week

The Vessel Sanitation Program for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) routinely inspects cruise ships for all aspects of sanitation from general cleanliness to food preparation, repairs, water quality and pest management.

Scores for all cruise ships (including required corrective actions) are published in an on-going Green Sheet report at the CDC website (http://www.cdc.gov/travel/cruiseships.htm) and follow the link to Cruise Ship Travel Health and Safety. Any score below 85 is considered unsatisfactory. Fortunately the majority of all cruise ships score 90 or above and as of 2007, Celebrity Millennium, Emerald Princess, Carnival Freedom and Disney Wonder all scored a perfect 100.
