Ships Ace CDC's Sanitation Inspection
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.

Included on the list are Royal Caribbean's Jewel of the Seas, Celebrity's Constellation, Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Sun, Crystal Serenity, Carnival Legend, P&O's Oriana and two Princess ships -- Sapphire and Caribbean Princess.

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.
