Muster 2.0

Since Muster 2.0 was rolled out in January 2020, has anyone had the opportunity to use it? If so, do you have any helpful tips or reviews of it? I am curious how well it worked, how user friendly is it?

Do you have to be onboard to use it or can you complete it from home like checking in for the cruise? If it has to be onboard, do you have to buy an internet package to access it on a mobile device? I know it is available on your in room TV.

Thanks

Amen.

I have a feeling they wont allow it to happen from home, but that would be acceptable for me!

The only real purpose the Muster drill serves for me, is an indicator when my work phone and laptop get shutdown and stowed for the remainder of the cruise, until 0700hours the day we pull back into port!

I agree, I don't think they will allow it from home...yet. However, I never thought they would let us complete it electronically, in any fashion. I just don't want to be forced to buy an internet package, just to complete the muster drill.

I agree OTG, for experienced cruisers, the muster drill serves no useful purpose. It is more mitigating liability on the part of the cruise line.

my first cruise being on Allure, the muster drill was lost on me, because I was Awestruck at the ship, and all of my surroundings. My 2nd cruise I actually paid attention. Now, i mostly shuffle my feet, look at my watch, and grumble about having to sit through it!

I feel your pain, Brother.

It hasn't even been rolled out to my Google Play store yet!

From what I understand, you need to be at your muster station to log into the app so they know you have been there. Sounds like a terrific idea! They won't have to shut down the bars and you won't have to sit around or stand around waiting for stragglers to show up to get started.

From what I read, you complete the training in your room on the TV or on your mobile device from anywhere on the ship (the bar in my case). Once you have finished, you report to the person at your muster station and they will electronically verify that you have completed the training and then you are done.

I love this concept and the time it will save, I just wish I could complete the training while I am still at home, then once onboard I just do the quick check-in with the person at my muster location.

Interesting. First I have heard of this one. Is this on all cruise lines or just a few? What exactly is Muster 2.0?
