SEATTLE, Sept. 12, 2018

Ships add to company's record of 29 perfect scores over the past five years

SEATTLE, Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Holland America Line'sAmsterdamand Noordam both recently earned a perfect score of 100 on surprise routine United States Public Health (USPH) inspections conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Amsterdam's and Noordam's scores follows sister-ship Zuiderdam's perfect 100 earlier this year and adds to Eurodam's record-making six-year run of perfect scores.

Amsterdam 's unannounced USPH inspection was held Aug. 9, 2018, during a call at Sitka, Alaska, in the middle of a seven-day Alaska cruise. Noordam's inspection was held Aug. 29 at Juneau, Alaska, also in the middle of a seven-day cruise. Over the past five years, several Holland America Line ships have achieved a perfect score of 100 nearly 30 times.

"There is nothing more important to us than the health and well-being of our guests and crew, and the most recent series of 100's is an impressive accomplishment that reflects this commitment," said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. "Congratulations to the teams aboard Amsterdamand Noordam, as well as everyone ashore who worked very hard to achieve these perfect scores."

CDC inspections are part of the Vessel Sanitation Program, which was introduced in the early 1970s and is required for all passenger ships that call at a U.S. port. The inspections are unannounced and are carried out by officials from the United States Public Health Service twice a year for every cruise ship.

The score, on a scale from one to 100, is assigned on the basis of a checklist involving dozens of areas of assessment encompassing hygiene and sanitation of food (from storage to preparation), overall galley cleanliness, water, shipboard personnel and the ship as a whole.
