Kudos to the genuinely breathtaking list of cruise ships that, since September, have managed to score a perfect 100 on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's notoriously thorough sanitation inspection.
The CDC, a United States agency that monitors a range of issues relating to public health, requires that all ships that dock in the U.S. undergo the surprise inspection. Typically, ships can expect to be examined twice a year and the inspection covers all of a ship's nooks and crannies, from tiling on a marble floor to grime behind an ice machine in the casino bar.
Generally more newsworthy is the usual list of failed suspects -- a score of 86 is passing. This time, though, there's no mainstream line on that list.
