The one where the QM2 passed inspection…

Cunard’s QM2 has received a passing grade of 92 when re-inspected by the CDC as part of their ‘Vessel Sanitation Program’ in New York on 27 July.

Six-weeks after receiving the fail mark of 84, Cunard has stated that they have corrected the issues highlighted in the original inspection and has subsequently addressed those brought to light in the re-inspection.

Whilst the grade is still below the near-perfect score of 98 that QM2 received in July 2010, Peter Shanks, president and CEO of Cunard, has expressed the line’s dedication to achieve the same perfect score of 100 that they received in recent years for both QM2 and Queen Victoria.

  1. I find it interesting that for such a premier cruise line that the issue of sanitation/hygiene would even be one? The image of prestige is easily tarnished for which the Captain of a ship must be held accountable. A fail mark in hygiene is evident of management failure in those affected designated areas on the ship.
