Carnival Breeze scored 100 during its recent United States Public Health (U.S.P.H.) inspection which took place in Miami earlier this month.
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.
The 3,690-pasenger Carnival Breeze will operate six- and eight-day Caribbean cruises from Miami before repositioning to Galveston, Texas, in May to launch a year-round schedule of week-long voyages visiting ports throughout the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexico and Florida.
