CRUISE SHIP INSPECTIONS

 
Published May 12, 2002|Updated Sept. 3, 2005

This is a chart of sanitation inspection results for cruise ships calling on U.S. ports. The inspections, which are not announced in advance, are performed by the federal Center for Environmental Health and Injury Control. General areas of inspection are: potable water, food preparation and holding, potential contamination of food, and general cleanliness and storage. There are dozens of specific examinations made, and a failure in any one of the major areas will reduce the score below the satisfactory score of 86.

Generally, the lower the score, the lower the level of sanitation. Ships scoring 85 or less are reinspected more quickly than those with satisfactory scores. The highest score possible is 100.

A summary of the inspections appears in Travel once a month. The report can be viewed on the Internet at http://www2.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp/vspmain.asp.
