Default Carnival Inspiration - lifeboat drill time

anyone recently on the inspiration; when was the lifeboat drill immediately before sailaway or after? if after sailaway did you miss cruising under the Skyway Bridge?

I think most of the drills are required to occur before or at the time of sailing

I had heard that they do the drill at 3:15 pm and that the ship will sail under the Skyway at 6:00 pm - just trying to confirm if this is still true.

I realize in most instances the drill is done before the ship sets sail (when the ship is on time and not delayed.)

Just got off the Inspiration last week. Muster was about 3:15 and you were done in plenty of time for sail away, which was also on time. From departure it takes about 2 hours to reach the bridge.

Great, I don't want to mess the skyway bridge.
