Not the Triumph, but a Carnival cruise nonetheless
The Carnival Triumph, also known as the infamous "poop cruise" boat from 2013, is now knee-deep in metaphorical shit after bombing a recent inspection from the Centers for Disease Control.
A November report from the CDC
was released earlier this week and highlights some choice scenarios like flies in unsanitary food prep areas, dairy products stored in hot temperatures, and dirty/clogged machinery.
The 2,754-passenger vessel scored a 78 out of 100, which is a rare failing grade for larger cruise lines.
According to the Miami Herald
, major cruise lines typically score 86 points or above. "As far as a large ship, I couldn’t tell you the last time this happened," said Miami-based cruise expert Stewart Chiron to the paper. "That’s how rare this is."
Mike Driscoll, editor of Cruise Week
, told the Herald
that the failing grade will likely have no long-term impact for the Triumph.
The ship made headlines a few years ago when an engine room fire caused the ship to lose propulsion, resulting in a disabled and shit-covered boat
floating off the coast of Alabama.
