Carnival Pride scored 100 during its United States Public Health (U.S.P.H.) inspection in Baltimore, marking the sixth Carnival Cruise Lines ship to earn a perfect mark this year.
Carnival Pride received 100 scores on all 42 items that comprise the U.S.P.H.’s comprehensive Vessel Sanitation Program checklist. The unannounced inspections, which are conducted twice a year and required for any cruise ship with an international itinerary calling at a U.S. port, evaluate vessels in a wide variety of areas, including adherence to proper food handling, preparation and storage procedures, and overall galley cleanliness. Ships’ potable water supplies used in spas and pools are evaluated, as well.
The 2,124-passenger Carnival Pride sails year-round from Baltimore on week-long cruises to the Caribbean, Bahamas and Florida.
