Carnival Legend scored 100 during its United States Public Health (U.S.P.H.) inspection which took place this weekend in Tampa.
To earn a 100 score, cruise ships must receive perfect marks on all 44 items that comprise the U.S.P.H.â€™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. Shipsâ€™ potable water supplies used in spas and pools are evaluated, as well.
The 2,1,24-passenger Carnival Legend will operate seven-day Caribbean cruises from Tampa through the fall then reposition to Australia for a seasonal program of eight- to 12-day voyages from Sydney.
