I thought the communication was lacking for the whole line, There was not a safety drill done on the first day after the scorching start at the dock. Then the only partial info was on the daily papers or what you could find on the TV, Happy the hand sanitizer was well used.  I thought the excursions would have been explained in more detail. Would like to have had the upgrade info before we boared to know where we were assigned. We were on the front of the ship & when the thrusters were started it was a bit of a start.
