One of Carnival Cruise Line’s ships has earned a perfect score of 100 during a recent United States Public Health inspection.
Carnival Elation was inspected recently while in Jacksonville, Florida; this marks the second time in a row that the vessel has earned a perfect score.
To earn a 100, cruise ships must receive perfect marks on all 44 items that comprise the Vessel Sanitation Program checklist. The inspections are unannounced and are carried out twice a year for any passenger ship that calls in a US port, evaluating areas such as food handling, preparation and storage procedures, galley cleanliness, and pool water supplies.
The 2,052-guest Elation operates year-round from Jacksonville sailing four and five-day cruises.
