Cape May Light Fails CDC

October 8, 2001
Delta Queen Coastal Voyages’ Cape May Light failed its most latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exam, administered on September 22, with a score of 79 (86 is passing). It’s fairly unusual for a ship of such recent vintage to fail the test, administered through the CDC’s Vessel Sanitation Program; Cape May Light, according to inspectors, was docked for violations ranging from hand washing and food storage to dish washing and hygienic practices. However, a Delta Queen spokesperson says the cruise line “has taken immediate corrective action following the CDC inspection, and will also be addressing issues relating to the replacement of some galley equipment when the ship enters routine dry-dock in early December.”
