The Carnival Victory has passed United States Public Health inspections perfectly after a full 100 points score. This is now the second time the ship has received full marks. The inspections took place while the vessel was recently docked in Port Canaveral, Florida.
During the U.S.P.H. inspections, many aspects of the ship are looked at including sanitation and food preparation areas. Inspectors will board a ship unannounced twice a year but it only applies to ships sailing an international itinerary with a port of call in the United States.
To prepare for the U.S.P.H crew will often put in extra hours to make sure their departments are ready for any unexpected visit. Cruise lines can predict when a Public Health visit is expected and will make sure crew members are always using correct procedures.
Congratulations to the crew for passing all 44 items that comprise the U.S.P.H.’s comprehensive Vessel Sanitation Program checklist. The 2,758-passenger Carnival Victory operates year-round 3-day and 4-day Bahamas cruises from the Space Coast. The vessel is 101,500 gross tons.
