Luxury Cruise Line Silversea Fails CDC Health Inspection
Silversea says the low score is an aberration, but considering long-time rumors of cruise lines scrambling to hide their violations pre-inspection, it’s not encouraging.
Silversea Cruises‘ Silver Shadow has failed its most recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention inspection, the first time the ship has done so. Silver Shadow earned a score of 84 during a June 17 surprise sanitation inspection.
The CDC’s surprise cruise ship cleanliness exam is conducted twice a year, with an 86 considered passing.
Although details of the inspection are not yet available on the CDS’s Web site, the cruise line confirmed the failure to Cruise Critic.
