Jan 25th 2012 1:20PM I, too, have been on multiple cruises. We are coming up on our 17th in March. I have never been on a cruise (Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Nowegian) where we have NOT had a safety drill in front of a lifeboat. Also, I think the extra security is a great idea. I was on a cruise a few years ago where the guy in the next cabin was beating the crap out of his girlfriend/wife (not sure which). We could hear her hitting the cabin walls and pleading with him to stop. When all the cabins around them called the information desk, they said they would send someone up but they never did. I was told they didn't want to get involved. Instead, we were up half the night listening to him beat her up. We didn't see her for TWO days. When we did see her, she had a bruised up face and bruises on the rest of her body. She could not look anyone in the face. I felt so sorry for her. If they had had some security, maybe they could have stopped some of the damage!
