Norwegian Cruise Ships Receive Perfect 100 Health Scores

Two Norwegian Cruise Line ships have received perfect health scores during recent surprise inspections by the Vessel Sanitation Program.

Both Norwegian Sky and Norwegian Gem scored a perfect 100 during health inspections over the past month.  The unannounced inspections are held twice a year for every cruise ship that sails to or from a U.S. port. The inspections are done by the VSP (Vessel Sanitation Program) to determine how well the ships are operating and to the check the sanitation standards on board.

During the inspections, all major areas of the ship are inspected including medical facilities, portable water systems, swimming pools and hot tubs, galleys and dining rooms, child activity centers, hotel accommodations, ventilation systems, and common areas of the ship.

To receive a perfect 100, the ship must receive perfect marks on all 44 items on the USPH’s Vessel Sanitation Program checklist. A score of 85 or below is considered a failing score.

If a ship sails outside of the United States for an extended period of time, it may not be inspected twice a year, but it will be inspected again when it returns to the United States.

This is the sixth perfect health score for Norwegian Gem and the fifth for Norwegian Sky.
