Ms Eurodam which is operated by Holland America Line has received another perfect USPH score for the 13th consecutive time.

The Holland America cruise ship is leading the way thanks to another full score of the USPH inspections for the 13th consecutive time. Ms Eurodam got 100 when the United States Public Health inspections took place unexpectedly on December 3, 2017.

Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line, said:

“With each new perfect score Eurodam’s entire team clearly demonstrates their pride and commitment to excellence and to continuing their amazing streak of perfect scores that raises the bar in the industry.”

“Receiving a perfect USPH score on an unannounced inspection is not easy, yet the team on Eurodam certainly makes it look that way year after year. We all know what a tremendous effort it takes to get that 100. Congratulations to everyone on Eurodam.”

When the vessel was docked at its homeport in Fort Lauder inspectors from the Centers for Disease Control boarded the ship. While the crew was getting the ship ready for its next scheduled voyage from the port inspectors went around the entire ship making sure public health and sanitation procedures are being followed. They checked many aspects of the ms Eurodam including food prep areas, bars, restaurants, garbage procedures and the overall ship as a whole.

This is the 13th time Eurodam has got full marks from the USPH inspections. It is the third inspections of the year and the ship will expect to keep the trend going through 2018 and beyond. The Holland America ship has six years of perfect scores! Very impressive indeed and it is mainly due to the hard working staff and crew who make sure everything is done correctly and extra effort is put in to make the ship in top condition.

USPH will take place two times a year on cruise ships calling at a U.S. port of call. Over the past four years, Holland America Line ships have achieved a perfect score of 100 more than 22 times.  In addition to Eurodam, ms Koningsdam and ms Oosterdam received perfect scores in March of this year.
