The crew of Carnival Vista hid potentially hazardous food, dirty dishware and equipment from the inspectors from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). 

According to the December report by CDC's Prevention’s Vessel Sanitation Program, onboard illnesses were not appropriately documented and the buffet included fruit flies.
