Costa Cruises’ Costa Atlantica scored 100 in a recent inspection conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States. The inspection took place Oct. 12 during a stopover in New York, one of the port calls on Costa Atlantica‘s series of Canada and New England fall foliage cruises.

The CDC inspections are part of the Vessel Sanitation Program, which was introduced in the early 1970s and involves all ships that stop at U.S. ports. They are unannounced events and are carried out by officials from the UnitBow of the cruise ship Costa Atlanticaed States Public Health Service twice a year. The score, on a scale from 1 to 100, is assigned on the basis of a checklist of 48 areas of assessment encompassing hygiene and sanitation of food (from storage to preparation), water, shipboard personnel and the ship as a whole. This is the seventh time that a ship in the Costa Cruises fleet has received maximum marks from CDC inspectors.
