Carnival Legend Earns Perfect Scores

Thursday, October 31, 2002
The new 88,500-ton Carnival Legend scored perfect 100s from both the U.S. Department of Public Health and Canadian Public Health Service during inspections in Baltimore and Halifax, Nova Scotia, earlier this month. The new 2,124-passenger vessel, which entered service in August 2002 and embarked on a six-day Bermuda cruise from Baltimore yesterday, Oct. 30, received perfect marks on all 42 items that comprise the U.S. Public Health Service's Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP), as well as the 42 items that encompass the Health Canada's Cruise Ship Inspection Guide. The unannounced inspections, which are conducted twice each year and required for any cruise ship with an international itinerary calling on a U.S. or Canadian port, encompass a broad range of shipboard sanitation areas, including proper food handling, preparation and storage procedures and overall cleanliness of the galley and other shipboard areas. The potable water supply used in spas and pools is also examined. "While Carnival ships consistently receive high public health inspection marks, perfect scores are quite rare. For Carnival Legend to have earned perfect marks from both U.S. and Canadian authorities is a testament to exemplary efforts of Carnival's food and beverage employees," said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president.
