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.
