Cruise Lines Change Life Boat Drill Policy

All cruise lines have announced that they will now conduct the mandatory muster drill before leaving port - this is above and beyond existing legal requirements which call for it to be held within 24 hours of the guests embarking.

The new policy follows a Cruise Industry Operational Safety Review in response to the Concordia incident and as part of the industry's continuous efforts to review and improve safety measures.

The new policy was agreed by the cruise line partners of:-

  • The Cruise Lines International Association
  • European Cruise Council
  • Passenger Shipping Association

The new muster policy, which has been voluntarily initiated by the associations' members and is effective immediately, exceeds existing legal requirements.

Should embarking guest arrive late - they will be given individual muster safety briefings

Musters are mandatory exercises conducted on cruise ships to ensure passengers are informed of safety protocols while onboard the ship, including emergency evacuation procedures.
