During a its world voyage the Costa Luminosa scored perfect marks from a recent United States Public Health Service inspection.

It’s outstanding the ship scored 100 out of 100 in the United States inspection. The inspections which also included officers from the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) took place on October 14. The Costa Luminosa was calling at the U.S. port in San Francisco when inspections went ahead.

This is the 13th time that the Costa Cruises fleet has received maximum marks from the CDC inspectors which is mainly thanks to the ship’s crew. To get full marks the crew have to keep the ship in perfect health and safety conditions that also includes onboard sanitation, all food aspects and overall shipboard procedures. Extra shifts are usually done to make sure standards are met and to be prepared for two USPH inspections at any time each year when calling at a U.S. port of call.

Costa Luminosa is sailing an around the world cruises which departed on 14 September 2015. The cruise is 98-days long which will come to an end in Savona, Italy on December 21. The Costa ship is 92,600 gross tonnage with 1,130 cabins and entered service in 2009.
