Holland America Line’s ms Eurodam earned its ninth consecutive perfect score of 100 on a recent routine United States Public Health inspection conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the first time in the company’s history that a ship achieved this distinction, said a statement from Holland America Line.
Eurodam’s unannounced U.S.P.H. inspection was held Oct. 25 during a turn-around call at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the start of a seven-day Caribbean cruise. Prior to that inspection, Eurodam had received a perfect score of 100 in February 2015 during a call at Fort Lauderdale.
“We’re always proud when our ships achieve perfect U.S.P.H. scores, but to get 100 nine times in a row is an exemplary accomplishment for everyone involved,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “Eurodam’s hard working and dedicated staff are to be commended for their success.”
Also this year, ms Statendam received its third consecutive 100, and ms Nieuw Amsterdam, ms Noordam, ms Ryndam and ms Veendam also earned perfect scores. In 2015, six Holland America Line ships have received a total of nine perfect scores.
