HAL continues to score high on ship inspections

The Signature class Eurodam achieves another perfect score by US health officials. The ship, launched in 2008, is 86,000 tons and carries 2100 passengers.


Holland America Line’s ms Eurodam earned its ninth consecutive perfect score of 100 on a recent routine United States Public Health inspection conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is the first time in the company’s history that a ship achieved this distinction.

Eurodam’s unannounced U.S.P.H. inspection was held Oct. 25 during a turn-around call at Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the start of a seven-day Caribbean cruise. Prior to that inspection, Eurodam had received a perfect score of 100 in February 2015 during a call at Fort Lauderdale.

“We’re always proud when our ships achieve perfect U.S.P.H. scores, but to get 100 nine times in a row is an exemplary accomplishment for everyone involved,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “Eurodam’s hard working and dedicated staff are to be commended for their success.”
