I'm going to make a reasonable guess here. They have their employees stationed everywhere, and especially to keep people out of the elevators. If you were to walk up to one of them, I'll bet they would provide the same assistance they do to wheelchair bound passengers.
I think they should post the name and cabin numbers of the people who miss muster. (some may not have arrived yet) Part of the reason it takes so long is people aren't released until everyone at that station is accounted for. Ok, maybe only post the names of the people who wander to their station 30 minutes after the muster is annnounced. We were on a hot deck in Miami, with that noose around your neck for 40 minutes. Neccesary I know, but hard to take when you know your time is being extended because someone is still enjoying a cool drink in their cabin.
