Negativity always readers it's head I see. If you've ever been to a muster drill, you would know that most of the time is spent waiting on others to arrive. Therefore, there are no instructions being said, just standing. O well, I had a great time on my second cruise this year

As you can see from my signature, I have taken many cruises. I have reported, on time, to each required muster drill at the appointed time. I have never used my cell phone during a muster drill.

I was merely making the point for future cruisers that cell phone use is not allowed during the muster drill. Do people use their phones during the drill? Of course. Does that make it right? No.

I don't think that's being negative; it's stating the facts.

I am glad you had a good time on your cruise.

I'm glad you had a great cruise! I remember back in the days when we had to wear the life jackets. The pics I have of my kids sitting at a table in Animators Palette cracks me up! "The California face lift". Where you can't turn your head without your whole body turning with it! Disclaimer: Those pics were taking while waiting.

Good on you Epcotatnight. Hope you had a fab time and trust me if I was waiting on someone at muster drill I too would take the opportunity to brag about my whereabouts

Some thoughts should just remain that....thoughts. We don't need to share them all & try to taint someone's fun

The last time i went to a Muster drill the CM's were trying very hard to be heard over everyone talking and getting quite annoyed that a lot of people were not taking notice. These will be the people that then complain if something did happen and 'they didn't know what to do' !

Complain, and worse, hinder the rest of us who were paying attention from getting to safety.

I have noticed the DIS cruise line board is well equipped with 'enforcement'. If a poster dares to admit they don't strictly observe EVERY DCL rule., they will be lectured on the error of their ways.

After the Concordia sinking and 32 deaths, the other cruise vessel issues the last few years I still find it amazing some people don't understand just how important the Muster drill is.


Talking and cells calls and texting does indeed disturb other passengers trying to listen and yes...that does endanger them form getting the information. The passenger talking and calling and texting by not getting all the information, including updates,etc, are indeed endangering others.


You endangering others, ends your rights to not pay attention.

Most of us in the Maritime industry believe they IMO/ USCG a mistake by not requiring everyone to wear life vests to the drills and the talk is they are considering requiring them as its been shown many passengers do not even look to find them!

In a real emergency, fire, power gone, on emergency power, the vessel possibly rolling and picking, dark passage ways, stair wells, crowds of people, that is not the time to have to wonder what you were supposed to do, where your life preserver is and how to get it on yourself and your kids and where you were supposed to go!


Think about this folks, its not a joke, nor is it a impossibility!

So yes, that talking, late arrival, call or text could indeed endanger others and yourself and your family!
