Ms Eurodam made history by getting a full score for the 11th consecutive time. The ship got a 100 score in recent United States Public Health inspections or also known as USPH.
Eurodam’s unannounced USPH inspection was held Jan. 14, 2017, during a turnaround at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., at the start of a seven-day Caribbean cruise. The perfect score follows on the heels of sister ship ms Koningsdam achieving a perfect score on its first USPH inspection in December 2016.
Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line, said:
“Holland America Line strives to be the best, and to earn an amazing 11 consecutive perfect public health inspection scores shows that it’s part of our company culture and our staff is working hard to make it happen.”
“Congratulations to the entire Eurodam team and everyone involved who work diligently every day to maintain the highest standards of operation.”
In 2016 six additional Holland America Line ships previously earned perfect scores, including Eurodam, Koningsdam, ms Maasdam, ms Veendam, ms Noordam and ms Westerdam. The year previously seven ships received 10 perfect scores: Eurodam, Noordam, Veendam, ms Zuiderdam, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, ms Ryndam and ms Statendam.
Well done to all the crew members onboard the Eurodam for making sure the ship was in perfect condition for the inspections. It’s not always known when the inspections will take place but they can easily be predicted. The crew will put in more effort than usually which includes extra cleaning and more checks by department heads.
