You may be on to something.
I have seen a cavalier attitude from long time cruisers about skipping the muster drill. They've done it so many times that it's boring and redundant and it is. The one thing that the Concordia disaster showed was that there is a good chance that there won't be someone outside your cabin telling you where to go or that the information they have is accurate. You are on your own and you better be as prepared as possible. Even if it's just knowing the shortest route to the muster station and lifeboat.
I'm a type A person but I'll still take the time to go to the drill.
