Is a passenger muster required after passengers join a UK ship?

Yes. The Merchant Shipping (Musters, Training and Decision Support Systems) Regulations 1999 (SI 1999/2722) (which are explained in MGN 71) provide that on any ship carrying passengers where the passengers are scheduled to be on board for more than 24 hours, a muster of the passengers must take place within 24 hours of their embarkation.

If more passengers join the ship in the last question after the passenger muster has been held, must another muster be held?

What type of counting system must be used in ships of EC Class A, or UK Classes II or II(A and in seagoing high-speed craft?
