    “Carnival Triumph” fails CDC sanitation inspection, for the first time ever

    Deficiencies identified included poorly maintained or soiled backflow preventers on potable water lines; two bathing pools with water levels below the required level

    The cruise ship that earned the “poop cruise” moniker in 2013 has failed her sanitation inspection for the first time ever. In a report completed in November and released earlier this week, inspectors with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) gave the Carnival Triumph a score of 78 out of 100, well below the required 86-point margin for a passing grade. It is the first time she has ever failed an inspection, according to two decades of CDC records, and the first time since 2009 that her score fell below 90 points.
