In the aftermat of the Costa Concordia Disaster, should Cruiselines reinstate the practice of passengers actually doning their life jackets at the safety briefings? On the Carnival Dream, we assembled in a conference - type room not a muster station. There weren't even enough chairs & I ended up standing giving my seat to a handicapped person. Many people had to stand. The sound didn't even work on the video. On other recent cruises, we did report to muster stations, on others we went to lounges. On none of my recent cruises on different cruiselines were we told to bring our life vests or wear them to the briefings. I think from now on, I will always keep a small flashlight on my person in the evenings while on a cruise ship.
