Yet Another Carnival Ship Fails Its Health Inspection

The CDC has released an inspection report that reveals a  third Carnival Cruise Line ship has failed it's most recent surprise inspection by USPH inspectors. The surprising part is that it was Carnival's newest ship, Carnival Vista, and the newer the ship, usually the easier it is to keep clean and attain a high score because they are built to make it easier to keep clean.

The even bigger surprise is why many of the points were lost. Inspectors believed there was an organized effort to hide violations from them, and they found carts full of food and dirty dishes in crew quarters. (The last time we saw that was in the 2013 Silver Shadow incident.)

The complete story appeared in the January 16 edition of Cruise News Daily.
