Piracy Drill
Today the ship’s company will be exercised in the Piracy Drill Routine. During this time there will be limited shipboard activities. Broadcasts will be made from the bridge and alarms will be sounded as instructions are relayed via the public address system. Passengers and crew will be required to take part in this important exercise. Passengers will return to their staterooms via internal routes and sit as far inboard as possible, away from exterior windows and doors. Ensure all exterior windows and doors are closed and secured. Prop open the interior door to your stateroom in order to receive instructions given locally by the ship’s personnel. Audio: Piracy Drill Announcement
