Cunard Lines Ltd. once had a reputation as the best line on the seas. Unfortunately, it deteriorated badly before Carnival Corporation acquired it and apparently has not imprived since. MV Queen Elizabeth II
-- Cunard's flagship -- failed sanitation inspection by the U. S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) a couple months ago. AFAIK
, this is the only ship operated by a major cruise line to fail the CDC's inspection in years.
