I go cuz it is part of the expected routine, law or not, and that's just the way I roll. Just consider it part of the cruise experience. It's all good...
I've only been on one RCCL ship that did that. That has not been the case on any other RCCL ship I have sailed. As I have stated, I think everyone should go to muster drill.
