Crew Practice Drill - Freedom of the Seas

Good morning,

I'm on a walk around the outside of the ship again and this time came upon a crew drill. 
That's the rescue boat out there.
On board are crew members who will be involved with a drill where people are in the water.
This is a life raft that has been launched from deck 4 over the side of the ship.  It doesn't look like a classic life raft, does it.  This one is quite large and is covered.
Crew members are already in the water...
...as a swimmer "comes to their aid."
 As the practice drill plays out...
 ...you can see the crew members take the exercise quite seriously.


 As the drill drew to a close, all was well with the "rescued" people in the water...
 ...as they waited to be picked up to go back to the ship.  Sometimes work can be fun!

Enjoy,
Lois
