    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established the Vessel Sanitation Program (VSP) in 1975 as a cooperative endeavor with the cruise vessel industry. VSP’s goal is to assist the industry to develop and implement comprehensive sanitation programs to protect the health of passengers and crew aboard cruise vessels. Every cruise vessel that has a foreign itinerary, carries 13 or more passengers, and calls on a U.S. port is subject to biannual operational inspections and, when necessary, reinspection by VSP. The vessel owner pays a fee, based on gross registered tonnage (GRT) of the vessel, for all operational inspections. The Vessel Sanitation Program 2011 Operations Manual, which is available on the VSP Web site (www.cdc.gov/nceh/vsp), covers details of these inspections.
