Not too many ships have the scanners yet. I first saw the scanner on the Oasis of the Seas in 2010. Given the ship can hold 5400-6400 passengers it makes sense the scanner would be quicker and more efficient. Your assigned life boat location is related to the location of your cabin. The crew know how many cabins are assigned to that life boat. They have the list of how many passengers in each of those cabins. I suppose it's possible if 45 people were standing in front of life boat #10 and the roster shows there should be 45 people, then they wouldn't have to call out names.
