Default A question about life jackets

I leave on 6/22 Conquest, first cruise, I have been so excited for a while now. Today I have some stress coming out.

Why do then make you go to your room, get your life jacket and do the drill.
What if in reality something happened and you were whenever your were say casino, what do you do about al ife jacket then, go to your room? I know this is silly to think about this but what is wrong with a drill from whenever your are at the time for the drill.
Any answers would be appreciated.

If there is time you are expected to go to your room and get your lifejacket, shoes, and essentials. (This does not mean your best formal shoes and make-up ladies) <> If you cannot get to your cabin you will still have access to a lifejacket stored on deck near the lifeboats. The idea of having them in your room is that you pre-adjust them to yourself, become familiar with them, and save the confusion of everyone clammoring for one on deck.

24 cruises and counting!

I wouldn't worry about timing, these ships are so large, they are not going to go into the drink in 5 seconds!

I'm sure you'd have time to get your jacket, if not, they do have spares located on deck...

Don't worry and enjoy!!!!!!!
