QE2 Scores 92 On Latest Inspection

Friday, January 24, 2003
Cunard Line's flagship Queen Elizabeth 2 received a score of 92 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vessel Sanitation Program. A satisfactory score is 86. The vessel, which was inspected yesterday in Honolulu, Hawaii, had received a failing score earlier this month from the CDC due to defiencies that were then immediately rectified by the line.

According to Pamela Conover, Cunard's president, "As the world's foremost luxury liner it is important that QE2 meets or exceeds all government standards and we will continue to do so with vigilance."

Cunard's 1,791-passenger QE2 is currently on her World Cruise, which began in New York January 5 and will end there April 23. The ship departs Honolulu today for Papeete, Tahiti.
