Default CDC ratings of ships

Why are only foreign flagged ships rated? There are several American Flagged ships that seem in need of inspection and sanitation improvements but I cannot find any rating for any of them.

Default Re: CDC ratings of ships

Gee, that's a very good question. I can't believe CDC would bypass American-flagged ships. But it's true. This is right off their web site:

"Every vessel that has a foreign itinerary and that carries 13 or more passengers is subject to twice-yearly inspections and, when necessary, to reinspection by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)."

In other words, it's ships with foreign itineraries that they check. Not the Independence or Patriot because they sail in US waters (Hawaii)
