Disney Cruise Line Continues to Receive High Marks from CDC Inspections

Up to twice a year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) carries out surprise inspections on cruise ships in order to prevent the spread of gastrointestinal illnesses. The four ships of Disney Cruise Line continue to score high marks during these inspections, including a recently released perfect score by the Disney Fantasy.

The Fantasy’s last inspection took place on September 22, 2018 and earned the ship a 100% score. Scores of 85 or lower are not satisfactory. In 2017, the Fantasy was inspected twice with a score of 99% in July and 100% in March.

The Disney Dream was inspected twice in 2018, with a score of 100% on both August 17th and April 9th. In 2017, the ship received a 95% in August and a 100% in March.

The Disney Wonder has only been inspected once in 2018, with a score of 97% on February 4th. In 2017, the ship received a 96% in November and a 100% in February.

The Disney Magic has not yet been inspected in 2018, but received two 100% scored in October and February of 2017.

In addition to the inspections, the CDC offers training for cruise ship employees, plus information for cruise ship travelers.

All of the inspection scores, including detailed reports, are available on the CDC website.
