Oasis of the Seas Aces Sanitation Exam

Date Posted: 19 Jul 2010

Royal Caribbean's flagship the Oasis of the Seas scored 100% in the CDC vessel sanitation exam, the stringent and surprise cruise ship cleanliness exam conducted twice a year by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

On June 26th the 225,282-ton, 5,400-passenger ship passed the exam with a perfect score, an improvement on the 97% scored in their first exam back in January.

The Oasis of the Seas is one of eight cruise ships to have earned a 100% pass mark in the past three months, with no failing scores (under 86) over the same period. Other ships were cleanliness-is-king are the Caribbean Princess, Diamond Princess, Radiance of the Seas, Norwegian Pearl, ms Zuiderdam, the ms Oosterdam and the Carnival Freedom.

The CDC, through its Vessel Sanitation Programme, is a US agency that monitors public health and hygiene. Inspections take place twice a year on all cruise ships that call in on US ports. The inspections are conducted to ensure all vessels maintain an adequate level of sanitation and provide guidance to vessel staff when need.
