33 Cruise Ships Earned Perfect 100 Health Scores Over the Past 12 Months

Twice a year, each cruise ship that sails to or from a U.S. cruise port goes through an unannounced public health inspection.  This surprise inspection is done by the VSP (Vessel Sanitation Program) to determine how well the ships are operating and to the check the sanitation standards on board each ship.
