CDC Inspection Scores Added to Cruise Resources

Newspapers

We have added an additional page to our Cruise Talk Central Cruise Resources. Now available is the latest CDC Inspection Scores for cruise ships.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) started the Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP) in the early 1970s because of several disease outbreaks on cruise ships. VSP was established to protect the health of passengers and crew by minimizing the risk of gastrointestinal illness on cruise ships. The program assists the cruise ship industry to develop and implement comprehensive sanitation programs.

In addition, the CDC Vessel Sanitation Program website has other resources to aide cruisers in healthy cruising.

Visit our CDC Inspection Scores resource to see how a ship you might be sailing on scored in it’s recent inspection. We will try to update this resource monthly with the latest scores.
