ms Rotterdam lifeboat drill

Rotterdam departure

After leaving Rotterdam behind, our ship had a lifeboat drill that interrupted our rubbernecking at the rails.

The ms Rotterdam's personnel asked women and children to stand near the lifeboats, while men were told to stay back against the bulkheads. (When abandoning ship--or, more benignly, when staging lifeboat drills--Holland America Line still observes the tradition of "women and children first.")
