Carnival Fascination scored 100 during its recent United States Public Health (U.S.P.H.) inspection which took place at Jacksonville, Fla. Carnival Fascination is the sixth Carnival ship to earn a perfect score this year.
To earn a 100 score, cruise ships must receive perfect marks on all 44 items that comprise the U.S.P.H.’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. Ships’ potable water supplies used in spas and pools are evaluated, as well.
The 2,052-passenger Carnival Fascination operates four- and five-day cruises from Jacksonville.
