Share this article

Holland America Line’s ms Maasdam recently received a perfect health score on their US Public Health Inspection.

Health inspections are required for all passenger ships that call at a US port.  They are unannounced and are carried out by officials from the US Public Health Service twice a year per ship.  The score is assigned on the basis of a checklist involving dozens of areas of assessment, including cleanliness and sanitation of food. To earn a perfect score, cruise ships must pass a 44 item inspection that includes food handling, storage, galley inspection and even the pools are evaluated.

Maasdam is constantly on the move sailing between the Caribbean, Alaska, Australia, and the South Pacific islands.
