Cruise Line Has Two Cruise Ships Earn Perfect Health Scores
Holland America Line’s Amsterdam and Noordam both earned 100 health scores while sailing cruises to Alaska.
Amsterdam’s unannounced USPH inspection was held Aug. 9, 2018, during a call at Sitka, Alaska, in the middle of a seven-day Alaska cruise. Noordam’s inspection was held Aug. 29 at Juneau, Alaska, also in the middle of a seven-day cruise. Over the past five years, several Holland America Line ships have achieved a perfect score of 100 nearly 30 times.
CDC inspections are part of the Vessel Sanitation Program, which was introduced in the early 1970s and is required for all passenger ships that call at a U.S. port. The inspections are unannounced and are carried out by officials from the United States
