Cruise Critic reports today that just one month after HAL’s Veendam flunked an inspection by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Blount Small Ship Adventures Grand Mariner’s 100 passenger cruise ship also failed a CDC inspection:
"Moldy ice-cubes, inadequate monitoring of food temperatures, raw meat stored with nonmeat items, ingredient containers left open, dirty dish-washing sinks" and 31 other violations earned the ship the failing score of 75 out of 100.
Wow. Sounds like the kitchen in my college apartment. And people pay money to cruise and eat on these ships?
