NEW Technology - Royal Caribbean Muster 2.0
Royal Caribbean has developed new technology to take the Muster Drill to the next level! The muster (or safety) drill is a mandatory practice at the beginning of each cruise designed to show guests where they should go in the unlikely event of an emergency, how to put on a life jacket and other safety measures. It’s incredibly important, but it’s also the least favorite part of the cruise for guests since it requires pausing your vacation just when it’s getting started.

That’s why Royal Caribbean began to develop a new approach years ago, and today, that’s Muster 2.0™. The new program reinvents the cruise industry’s standard safety drill with a process that is more personal and promotes higher levels of safety.

Guests can complete the drill on their own time thanks to this new eMuster™ technology, which brings the safety information they need to their mobile device and stateroom TV. Then, before the ship departs, every guest just needs to visit their assembly station—a designated check-in location—where crew can verify they’ve completed the process. No more set time, no more large group assemblies. As more technologies are developed, watch for additional updates from your favorite cruise llne.
