The thing is easy to surf thru once you get the hang of it. find your ship, hit search, and for the actual report hit report. Thus deserves its own thread methinks.

And a big thanks to OGW, who started this "adventure"...I know what I'd like to call it, but then I'd be banned..

Great information, I never knew it existed. I have know searched all my upcoming ships!

I just looked at the Regal - it makes me almost want to cancel my cruise.

There were 25 violations, including food stuck to plates in the "clean" stack at the buffet, glasses sitting near the sink at the bar, fish stored above vegetables in the refrigerator, pine bark stored on top of a box of napkins, water pooled in a refrigerator, and much more. The ship scored 100. (I hope that the Health Service never visits my home! Except for Uncle Pinkie, off duty of courseBig Smile)

I did look at Breakaway, and it seems that they really do need to tighten up on cleaning/sanitation.

I love the fact that they call it "Green Sheet Report". Do you think that this name is someones tongue in cheek sense of humour in reference to what occurs when bacteria issues become intestinal issues .... well maybe not ... this is government and we all know that gov has no sense of haha

Sorry .. just had to ask .. it was one of those too tempting to ignore.

I do note that some of the items listed on some of these inspections should not really be there and are a bit extreme and pushing the bounds of what should be acceptable. However other items on these reports are down right scary when you read them. Need to put the incidents in context and evaluate with common sense if the report items are actually a danger or not.

Whats funny..(or not)...we actually met the F&B Mgr on BREAKAWAY one day. very personable, wandering around,, like they all tend to..Wonder if he's still employed? And OGW, I'm just going to leap into a "grey area" heheh..seems to me if they start to inspect a ship, and not a lot is wrong, or its minor, that's fine. AND having a cooperative crew with a good attitude probably helps. Get on one with a bunch of violations before they're even warmed up...well..mebbe it can go from bad to worse VERY quickly.

You are welcome, Yankee 47. How many inspectors does it take to inspect a cruise ship? I don't know for sure, having no first-hand experience with ship inspections, but I would guess a team of 3 to 6 inspectors. Do they ever sail with the ship? Not to my knowledge. Do they inspect passenger cabins? I doubt it. To the best of my knowledge, the USPH inspections are limited to food services unless there is a specific public health complaint.

Posted by my wonderful husband. Maybe I should list him as WH instead of DH?!?Wink

Well my thanks again to your husband for his input. How you refer to him is a swamp I'm not prepared to wander into. I have my own bayou …. heheheh…..

Sounds like the start of a bad joke .....

Some good conversation and points worth noting.

Surprised more folks haven't chimed in about THEIR ships..or mebbe my prediction was right that they might have looked and were too shocked to post. Kicking over rocks...well...you get what you get...
