Default Muster drill - have you ever done this?

Having the muster drill at 10:00 am on the 2nd day of the cruise?

I have always had the muster drill on the first day, ALWAYS!

I scheduled a get together Sunday morning at 9:30 thinking it would be a safe time - boy was that bad planning! Who would have known?

Pam,

I scheduled the get together weeks in advance.

I have always had muster on the first day, so I just assume I would be safe on the second day to plan a get together.

Just curious if anyone else has had a muster drill on the 2nd day verses the first day.

We had the drill on the 2nd day on the Summit/Hawaii .... but figured it was because we sailed at midnight.

I also remember the Crown Princess/Alaska also had it the next morning 4 years ago.

On my Panama Canal Cruise and our European Cruise last year they had the Muster Drill the second day. It really is not all that unusual. Sometimes the sailings are simply too late in the day to have the muster around the sailing time.

As long as the drills are held within 24 hours of sailing, the cruise lines are in compliance with SOLAS and coast guard regulations. Happened to me twice.

It 's not at all uncommon on non-Caribbean sailings.

Lisa has it exactly right... within 24 hours of departure.

On both of my southern Caribbean sailings out of San Juan, which sailed at 10:00 p.m., we had the muster drill the next afternoon about 4:00 p.m., once as we left St. Croix, and once as we left St. Thomas. On the Summit Hawaii cruise, which sailed at mdinight, it was also the next day.

The weirdest situation I've ever encountered was on Horizon last November. It was a very late sailing. There was one before sailing and a "make up session" the next day for people who are not on board. Wonder how many of the non-attendees for the evening drill showed up the next day?

For the "Get Lei'd Cruise" on the Summit we had planned our PJ Sail-a-way Party for midnight, asssuming there would be a late muster drill. As someone said already it was the next day.

If we had checked we could have scheduled a bit earlier. Not that it affected anything, but we'd have had a couple of extra hours to party before everyone crashed.
