Cruise ship holidays can be great fun as travellers put their day-to-day life concerns behind them. Cruises offer plenty of opportunities for fun and relaxation to help you get the most out of your holiday. However, cruisers still need to remember that cruise ships have rules in place that need to be obeyed.
It’s important not to get so swept up in that holiday feeling that you end up flouting a key regulation.

“This is conducted just before the ship sets sail,” Better explained, “And yes, it is mandatory.”
Confident cruisers may not see the need to attend the briefing but you’re not allowed to get out of it.
The key drill provides important information in case of an emergency.
Better reveals that cruise ship crew will make sure everyone onboard goes to it.
