What a story. All those lifeboat drills we attended don't mean a thing?
Do they in fact create a false sense of security? I wonder if the crew actually receives any training in dealing with panic on board, or if they just think they put on their hat and stand at the stairway directing people into the lounges?
And what in the world could the Captain have been thinking?
Mike, yes I do think most of the staff have NO IDEA what to do other than go to where they are supposed to go & await instructions. Without being patronising I don't think they really understand & just follow parrot fashion...
