Looking to book a cruise vacation but concerned about recent 2015 health inspections? A new report lists the 32 boats that received perfect health inspection scores in 2015.
Health and safety on cruise ships is a key concern for many, especially with so many reports of viruses — like the nasty Norovirus — that seem to pop up in the news with regularity.
While you generally can not sue a cruise line for Norovirus, it can lead to an awful sailing experience. And if past history is any indication of future results, reading the list of top rated ships is a great place to start.
From the article at CruiseCritic.com…“The CDC inspections are unannounced and occur twice a year on all ships that sail in or out of a U.S. port. Ships must earn a score of 86 or higher to pass.
Holland America and Carnival received the most perfect scores, with six ships on both lines getting 100. On Holland America, the other ships included Veendam, Noordam, Statendam, Ryndam (no longer with the fleet) and Nieuw Amsterdam.
Conversely, three cruise ships failed the inspection in 2015, including Royal Caribbean’s Adventure of the Seas, Celebration Cruise Line’s Grand Celebration and Silversea’s Silver Shadow.”
