"This morning about 7:30 there was an emergency announcement for a fire in the deck 4 engine room. We were having breakfast in the Horizons buffet area. About 5 minutes later, the general emergency alarm was sounded and all crew were called to their emergency stations. They remained for about 30 minutes before being released. We were advised that the fire was struck pretty quickly and that we were in no danger."

Once again we are reminded why attending and paying attention at muster drills, is not only required, but wise.
Reading about a 'non' event is testament to this. Fires on a cruise ship have a unique set of additional dangers.

I get so annoyed in safety drills when I see people fiddling with their phones instead of paying attention--knowing that in an emergency they would be the ones to cause problems because they didn't know what to do.

What's to really know?  Huh
When to go.
Where do you go.
What to take with you.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out.
