If the power fails and people cannot get back to their cabins or cannot find there cabins in all the confusion, lifejackets should be readily available in many central places. When people are scared or confused or there is a language barrier, the best laid plans can go totally crazy!!! Terrified passengers all speaking different languages, some trying to find loved ones or children in a blacked out ship would be a disaster without a GOOD well rehearsed plan!! The lines should work together to unify these plans to be similar from ship to ship, to make it easier for passengers to remember and understand.
