Mar 01, 2017

On a routine unannounced USPH inspection conducted by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Holland America Line cruise ship MS Eurodam received its 11th consecutive perfect score. The inspectors boarded Eurodam while the vessel was docked in its home port at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on January 14, 2017. After inspecting the key facilities and procedures onboard the CDC inspectors give perfect marks with 100 points. MS Eurodam is by far the cleanest cruise ship not only in Holland America fleet but this 11th in a row perfect score is a record in the entire cruise industry.

"Holland America Line strives to be the best, and to earn an amazing 11 consecutive perfect public health inspection scores shows that it's part of our company culture and our staff is working hard to make it happen," said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. "Congratulations to the entire Eurodam team and everyone involved who work diligently every day to maintain the highest standards of operation."

The USPH score is assigned on the basis of a checklist of several areas of assessment encompassing hygiene and sanitation of food and water, including overall galley cleanliness, shipboard personnel procedures and the ship as a whole.

We like to congratulate all Eurodam crew for their hard work and commitment. Keep on a great job and we hope you celebrated this perfect record with pride and joy.
