Does anyone know what time the muster drill usually takes place on the Carnival Valor?

Our roll call group wants to set up a good time to meet, but don't want to clash with muster.

Thanks,

Jay

It is usually 1/2 hour before sail time.
When we get our Meet & greet groups together, we usually just say to meet at a certain place right after sail way. Muster can sometimes last into sail away or people want to watch sail away for certain areas, so right after has always worked for us.

But how do you determine when sail away is over? Passed the bridge, can't see people, can't see land.

We usually plan to meet on the Lido right after muster, but our official M&G is almost always on the 1st sea day.

The M&G that we're planning for the Crazies cruise is probably not going to be until sometime in the evening on day 3 since we want John Heald to be on board. We're up to 72 people signed up for the cocktail party.

We sailed at about 4:00 pm and the drill was just before that so maybe around 3:30 pm. Have a great time on your cruise. My wife and I loved our cruise on the ship.

Just my opinion...but I believe it is almost too hectic/exciting for people to meet up on the first day. It maybe better (note in IMHO) to have your meet and greet the first day.

If the first day is a must then try to make it ass soon after you board as possible.

Enjoy your cruise
