For the second time this year, Carnival Liberty has scored 100 during its most recent United States Public Health (U.S.P.H.) inspection which took place earlier this month in Port Canaveral, Fla., This marks the ninth time this year that a Carnival ship has earned a perfect 100 score on its U.S.P.H. inspection.
To earn a 100 score, cruise ships must receive perfect marks on all 44 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.
Carnival Liberty operates five- to eight-day Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral.
