Report: Carnival Ship Failed CDC Inspection
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Carnival Cruise Lines can’t catch a break lately. Just days after the Carnival Triumph was left disabled due to an engine fire, another Carnival ship, the Fascination, failed a health inspection from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
According to USA Today, the inspectors found violations including not enough chlorine in the ship’s water park, improperly protected salad bars, flies around hamburger patties and food waste leaking under a kitchen counter.
The CDC inspectors also allegedly found several flies and a young cockroach around the deck drawin under the room service juice dispenser, according to the USA Today report.
The Fascination scored an 86 on the CDC report. According to USA Today, anything under 86 is considered a failing grade.
For its part, Carnival said one of its ships failing a CDC inspection is rare, according to USA Today. Carnival said its fleet averages a score of 97 and in 2013 the average score is 97.2.
