Earlier this week, the Carnival Liberty and Carnival Paradise both obtained perfect scores on recent USPH Inspections in their respective home ports of Miami, Florida and Tampa, Florida.
A perfect score can only be achieved by earning perfect marks on a comprehensive safety and sanitation checklist. The checklist is comprised of detailed inspections of food handling, preparation, storage procedures, and overall galley cleanliness. In addition, the ship’s potable water supplies, which is used in the spa and pools, is also evaluated.
These inspections are performed randomly, without any prior warning, twice a year. The inspections are conducted on every cruise ship that is sailing an international itinerary with a call in a US port.
The Liberty and Paradise’s perfect scores mark the seventh time a Carnival ship has received a perfect score from the USPH this year.
